If you’re fortunate to have a patio, deck, or balcony — yes, even a tiny one counts — congratulations, you have an outdoor space to call your own! Having access to a little slice of the outside is great for soaking up some vitamin D during a sunny afternoon, enjoying a meal or glass of wine al fresco, or grabbing a breath of fresh air without having to walk very far (or even change out of your pajamas).
With some creativity and stylish furniture, lights, and decor, as well as a quantity of houseplants that only you and your credit card bill will know, you can transform your small deck, patio, or balcony into a relaxing retreat right at home. Ahead you’ll find some Instagram inspiration to help you make the most of your small space all year round.
Find your own zen in a space filled with earth tones, macrame wall decor, airy rattan furniture, a hammock chair swing, hanging lights, and a touch of greenery.
Mix and match black and white textiles with different geometric patterns for a modern look, and then use various plants to add warmth to your small space.
