summer on a balcony.

Spring has come and it’s finally warm out in the sun. I was spending the first hours of this year sitting out there on my balony and enjoyed the sun. Summer is almost here.

We all love the moment when we can sit outside without a lot of blankets and clothes covering us. And the time is finally here. Next step is to clean the outside from winter and make it as beautiful as the inside so that we can enjoy the upcoming BBQs, flowers and bees as well as all the warm summer nights.

My boyfriend and I not just wanted a balcony to sit outside but to live. First of all we liked the idea to have a small garden on it. Some summer herbs, some rocket, strawberries, chili peppers and a few flowers we decided to grow. I went out and bought some seeds for some plants and other we bought as a baby plant.

Also we got some decorations, light and chairs – everything we need on our balcony. Some things we found at the loft of my grandpa and others at a thrift shop.

We fixed a ladder and we are using it as a plant shelfie now. I just love te way it turned out.

And now it’s time to wait for all the plants, herbs and flowers to grow, bloom and carry fruits as well as to enjoy the first warm sunbeams of the year.

The summer is about to come.

What are your plans for this summer to create not just an urban jungle in the inside but also an oasis to enjoy the summer at? I got tons of ideas and can’t wait for the hot days and warm nights to arrive. I would love to see your summer open air living room. Feel free to show some pics while using #ndgbl.

Sending some love,


Pia, x
