I was ecstatic when I found out that this month’s theme for the Urban Jungle Blogger would be window sills and balconies! I couldn’t resist to talk again about my balcony which was recently redone for +The Home Depot Patio Style Challenge. So today I’m sharing with you a closer look at what I did on my urban space.
When designing my balcony I knew I had to have lots of succulents, but I didn’t want them scattered around. So I realized that they would served as a frame to my space and at the same time, enhance the beautiful pattern of the tiles. On this edge I used several types of succulents and try to mix and match as much as possible. I can’t wait for them to grow an multiply. The mix of colors will be amazing.

Another thing that I really wanted to incorporate in my balcony was a herb garden. For this I used a Polanter Plastic 3-Way Planter that I painted (using Rust-Oleum) in that Key Lime color that you see.
Living in a tropical climate area, I needed a citric plant. So in comes the lemons. Because I didn’t want to transplant it, I took a piece of burlap and wrap it around the container. Loving this look!
It is pretty amazing how many things one can do in such a small space. From styling it to planting, anything is possible in my balcony. Hope you like this and let me know how are you using your balcony. Do you have any big plans for that space? Share your thoughts with me.
Thank you Judith and Igor for this month’s theme. Looking forward to next month’s challenge.
