Spring inspiration: balconies, patio’s and urban gardens for city dwellers


Wow, that was a trip. Winter just didn’t seem to know when to quit right? But voila, spring is here. Trees and plants are slowly beginning to bloom, birds dare to sing without fear of freezing their vocal cords, and the sun rears up it’s pretty golden head! Time to go outside, open those doors and let the air in!

I feel it, and can’t wait for Friday April 19th when FINALLY after 5 years of bureaucratic struggles, we’ll have a balcony too! I am already researching magazines and garden books for the best plants, the most comfortable cushions and outside candles. I can’t wait to add that bit of outside space to our home. Here are some of the best balconies, patio’s and urban gardens I stumbled upon.

Remember my post about Anthropologie? Imagine my surprise when Sinterklaas brought me the Pansy Petite Vase this year! I love the massive yet frail ceramic flower on it. It reminds me a bit of a the famous Carrie Bradshaw corsage. In the November issue of 25 Beautiful Homes I saw a great pillow with felt fuchsia flowers to complement the look. Maybe I should treat myself….
