Before : the balcony is furnished with mismatched furniture, including a large storage shelf that visually divides the space into two parts. The back of the balcony remains difficult to access and does not require visitors. XXL planters housing large bamboos are grouped on the same side of the balcony, creating a bulky and unsightly plant bed.
After : The shelf has been removed to facilitate circulation and ventilate the space. The plants are scattered over the entire surface of the balcony in order to bring a touch of greenery without creating a visual overflow, like what was done before. At the end of the balcony, the old faded wall now supports a custom-made trellis on which grows a large jasmine: the outdoor space comes back to life thanks to the addition of new plants and the reorganization of spaces!
Modernize the floor and furniture
Before : The worn and mismatched furniture is partly responsible for the dated atmosphere of the balcony. A great deal of fresh air is needed on the walls as on the floor, which is covered with brick-colored tiles, typical of the 70s and 80s. Dark colors help to tarnish the outdoor space and underline its faded appearance. After : Claire Delahaye, decorator at Slowgarden, opted for a slatted floor in order to make room and modernize the whole. The ceiling is repainted in white to increase the light tenfold and the walls are rejuvenated with a light beige paint. In terms of furniture, the old fabric seats have disappeared in favor of trendy colored metal chairs (Fermob). Two Chilean bayadere fabrics complete the seating and add cheerfulness to the balcony.
