Balconies work as an extension of the room they are attached to. Streaming common elements together create a flow between the indoors and outdoors.
Lightweight movable furniture, a stock up of cushions and accessories help to dress the space by the occasion and to suit the mood and personal style.
Enliven with lighting options while considering the utility of the space. Get a relaxed feel with softer lights or candles. To double up as a study or home office, a focused light like a pendent or a table lamp.
Privacy walls can feel constrictive, but they can be used creatively for a unique look and feel. Vertical gardens or planter boxes, are perfect to allow greenery in less space. Shelves or étagères with curios, plants and books add a personalized mien.
Lack of privacy can be handled just as creatively. Intricate screens or creeper trellis, let in breeze and light and help add coziness to the space.
Create a visual delight in your own slice of sky; your balcony. Customise it with themes and get access to options available online or offline.
In the words of Photographer and author of the book ‘Beyond Bombay Balconies’, Ayesha Taleyarkhan, “It’s (balcony) a place close to the heart, a free-for-all space that can be whatever you want it to be.”
