On our top floor (third floor) we have a balcony which I have to confess, we’ve never actually used. In fact, a good friend who has visited my home millions of times even commented that she never knew it existed! It’s actually a lovely, peaceful spot which gets at least one more hour than sunshine than our little backyard. And in a time when our homes and outdoor spaces have become increasingly important, I finally decided it was time to do something about it! The balcony is 2.5 metres x 1.5 metres and there’s a big door that opens outwards onto it, making it a fairly tricky space to furnish. Fortunately, the wood decking was already in place when we moved in so I didn’t need to start completely from scratch – just furnish it! I noticed my lovely Danish client – Nordal had just the outdoor chairs I was looking for and it all went from there. Here’s the lowdown:
This is the view from our bedroom. It may look like we only have sheer curtains but look closer and you’ll spot a tightly rolled up black out blind over the door. 
I absolutely love plants and surrounding myself with greenery. I planted a wisteria in the ground when we moved in over 10 years ago and it has climbed the entire way up our house, and onto our third-floor balcony! If it could, it would take over the entire interior too (like something out of ‘Little Shop of Horrors’!). It’s my pride and joy – especially when it blooms – the scent is divine! 

I picked out a pair of rattan-inspired Vasai lounge chairs which have a rattan and wood look but designed for outdoor use.  
Look at any outdoor Scandinavian seated area and you’ll no doubt find a blanket – a year-round staple! This one is the linen Saturn towel – which I think works equally well as a blanket, although I have no doubt the girls will enjoy taking it down to the water as soon as Toney catch wind of this new piece!

In my mind you can never have enough greenery so mI’m always looking for ways to add more. This Ajonu pot has a wonderful grainy effect – and is perfect for adding more plants to the balcony (sadly, not everything can grow three storeys high!). 

Since the balcony is on the top floor and therefore quite a long way from the kitchen, we figured a rattan tray would be ideal for carrying items up and down the stairs, but shied away from a table since there simply isn’t really the space. Maybe I’ll add one later should I feel I miss it!
Also seen here: a summery WEVA pitcher (I might have to exchange the water to PIMMS later!), Tonga notebook in suede and brass watering can. 

I also added a summery jute rug from Granit, so that it would feel softer underfoot. It looks pretty but it will need to bene taken in in wet weather. 
I hope you like my balcony update as much as I do. 
If anyone’s looking for us this weekend, you’ll find Per and I right here!
