Monday Moment: a small balcony FULL of color #Reader Round-up#colorful#porches/balconies August 13 | Megan Finley meganfinley There ain't NOTHING wrong with how much color Offbeat Homie Kristin squeezed into her small balcony. And it was all achieved with a rainbow of planters and paper lantern string lights, which is giving me some ideas about my own small balcony. Hmmm… Here's what Kristin had to say about it her colorful outdoor moment. I love our outdoor space! One year living in our apartment, and we've finally turned this bare space into something comfy and inviting. The only problem? The tree in the background? It causes my allergies to go nuts! But I bet having a cool drink on this awesome balcony is TOTALLY worth the allergy fight! Now I want to see more of your outdoor space.

This is my favorite moment of all time. Rainbow: it's my favorite color. 4 agree Reply Yeah, it's making me feel kinda lame about my all-white and green balcony. :/ 1 agrees Reply So fun! It's reinvigorated my desire to paint a bunch of ceramic pots in bright colours for my front porch. Reply Hey! My balcony! Yay! Unfortunately, it doesn't look so pretty right now. We've been dealing with a family of raccoons who have taken up residence nearby, and they've decided that my lovely balcony made an awesome playroom. I woke up one morning, and the pots were turned over, plants were eaten or destroyed, and the lights pulled down. Guess its time for a change! Haha. But thanks so much for featuring this picture! I love the site and learn something new or gain some inspiration every day! 1 agrees Reply I have those same exact planters and bought them for the same exact reason you have them: COLOR!! I adore little spaces that pack a color punch to your face! Reply Very cute! Reply Love this! Color is so much fun. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
