Shop Our Balcony Decor:
ICYMI: I’ve moved around a lot over the last few years. From my adorable little apartment in Arlington to my bachelorette pad in Philly to my spacious 2-bedroom in Charlottesville, I feel like I’ve spent the last five years constantly decorating (and redecorating) my spaces!
We’ve been in our Charlottesville apartment for nine months now, and since Tom and I have been traveling like crazy over the last year, we haven’t had much time to finish decorating our place. Now that it’s summer and we want to start entertaining our friends more and hosting overnight guests, we finally have the motivation to get our apartment in order.
The first “room” we were able to finish? Our balcony area. Out of all of the places I’ve lived in the past five years, this is the first apartment I’ve had with a balcony. I wanted to finish designing this space before Memorial Day Weekend, and we were able to so on a pretty modest budget. We’ve got a pretty good mid-size balcony, and we wanted our space to feel cozy and inviting.
If you’re looking to redo your patio or balcony anytime soon, here are a few tips and tricks to elevate your space.
