Inner City Balcony Oasis

Starting from the bottom up, we gave the tired concrete a fresh coat of paint using Resene Perfect Taupe, a warm pastel Maltese grey-beige drifting towards tones of pink. This provided a neutral, warm base to complement the interior styling.

Clusters of off-white pots were added to showcase the tropical planting that blends well with the palms surrounding the building. A wire espalier was attached to the balcony divider wall to grow a climbing Star Jasmine. We placed a pot in front of the gap to provide additional privacy from the neighbouring balcony. 

To make a balcony functional, we need furniture that fits. We custom-built a folding table that attaches to the railing and can be closed when not in use. We also custom-built a small outdoor sofa to fit snugly into the opposite corner, otherwise dead space.
