Balcony: Little Bit Green for Small Apartment Living

Balcony Outdoor Flatlay composition

During these warmer months of a year, I always fancied the idea of a balcony, terrace, or patio!

Living in a one-bedroom city apartment, my family is snug as a bug in the rug. Over here, it is an urban community with neighbors all around us. For one thing, we have always reveled in living in dense cities with people around us. In essence, we enjoy the communal and social life. Not only is there connectivity to the place of work, but also an overabundance of nightly takeouts at your disposal. Be it meeting a long time buddy or entertaining family, there will be a deluge of ideas. The conveniences are plenty.

On the other hand, we hope, at times, there is space to spread out and more room doors to close. Still, not that more space necessarily solves all the problems. It doesn’t change how you go about your daily lives. It won’t give you process, design, and structure. Granted, it will probably give you more space to add a new work desk, an additional closet, or a cabinet for toys. Consequently, you will likely fill it up, and the cycle continues.

In essence, more space might not resolve all the issues. Ultimately, we all find our own little sanctuary. From time to time, our balcony is the place for repose for the inhabitants of this apartment. It is tiny, yet we can unwind here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Balcony herb garden

 

The delightful flowers and hanging ivy create a charming spot. Occasionally, small birds fill the air with their song while butterflies dance. The garden string lights dazzle at dusk and into the night. Moreover, the thriving amaranth, lemongrass, holy basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano is handy for the boiling pot of pasta, tea, or occasional immunity booster shot.

This retreat spot in our home is sublime for a tete-a-tete or to indulge in a cup of evening Chai.
