In summer I love having breakfast and dinner on my small balcony. To hold on to the tropical weather of my travels to the Côte d’Azur, I chose to decorate my balcony differently this year. I chose only tropical plants, like a banana plant, an Anthurium, and Calla flowers. The lush greenery pairs perfectly with my turquoise accents and my black and white geometric outdoor rug. I constructed a side table from an IKEA stool and a white tray so I can easily move it, and transform it in an extra seat for guests. On top, a Gacoli Checkmate: A small 23 cm garden lamp for sultry summer evenings that is powered by sun. It creates a lot of atmosphere and is a convenient reading lamp at the same time. An outdoor space to relax and feels like an indoor room!
