Do you have a balcony that you never use?  Are you confused as to the right furniture and plants that will work on your balcony?  Well, this solution is an Exclusively to Design's favorite!

Take a look at our balcony design tips... 

Ø  Incorporating freestanding “wall” gardens - creates a natural and serene atmosphere while adding color and texture to your outdoor space.

Ø  Multi-layer your lighting - Tall floor lamps, lighted floor planters and lanterns all offer variations of light at different points of your balcony, both living and dining.

Ø  Focus on adding conversational seating - compact sectionals, sling chairs and daybeds finish off the ends of balconies and create an intimate cozy outdoor living space.

Ø  We Love Potted Gardens… 3 senses … sight, smell and taste. Cultivate your favorite herbs or flowering plants for cooking and aromatherapy that accent your outdoor areas.

Ø  Outdoor Entertaining - We all love to chill outside and if you are lucky enough to have a tiny strip or a massive plot of paradise, you need to prepare your party favors.  Outdoor counter bars, rolling bar carts and grill table with electric grill bring function and ease to your party.

Ø  Color… what are your surroundings? Is it the ocean? Brickell or Tampa Bay?  The color scheme you choose for your outdoor space should play off of the unique natural environment that surrounds it.
