I'll admit it - I'm a city person, through and through, so the idea of a big backyard or bountiful garden just doesn't enter my thoughts, even when I'm fantasizing about my dream outdoor space. A small balcony is about as big as I can go, but since I'm at it, I'd like it to feel like my true favorite outside space - a cafe in Paris. In other words, my perfect spot to sit and enjoy a coffee on a summer morning!

The components of my cafe style balcony (as shown above) are:

• 20-06 Square Cafe Table by Foster & Partners for Emeco from DWR, $1255.

• A potted Meyer Lemon Tree from Williams Sonoma, $69.95.

• A few Metropolitan Chairs from CB2, $139.

• A Mid-Century Sunshade from DWR, $999.

• A Ceramic Garden Stool from Pagoda Red, price not available.

• An Outdoor Maze Rug from Williams Sonoma Home, $125.

• A Barrow Bar Cart from West Elm, $199.

• A Chopstick Pot from Pagoda Red, price not available.

• An espresso maker, preferably this cute 70s style one from Gaggia.
