My Great Outdoors: Maude’s Montreal Balcony

Name: Maude

Location: Montreal

Type of space: Balcony

Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: My balcony was at first pretty boring, I wanted to create a fun and cosy spot to hang out on sunny days. I like to see the balcony as an extension of the apartment essence. On my part of the street, where every apartment is in a row and all look the same, it totally gives personality to my block.

How did you create it?:
The chairs and the table were bought at Ikea, I saw them before as outdoor chair on a picture of a former post and I thought it was fun to use them outside. I really like how the lime green interacts with the fake grass carpet. For the fabric surrounding the fence, I just bought at the fabric store a fabric that was made for the outside and I pass it through the balcony. It cost half the price I would have pay for a ready made one. The shade of grey gives a modern look to it, I was pretty happy with my lucky find.
