Cozy Outdoor Living for Small Spaces

With Summer here many of us will be spending much more time outdoors. If you have a yard, then there are numerous possibilities of landscaping, gardening and creating an outdoor living or dining space to enjoy all summer long. I happen to live in an apartment with a small balcony off of the family room, which is large enough to hold a couple chairs and a small table, but it's definitely going to require me to get creative on making the most of every square inch if I want to spend any time out there this season. Even the smallest of spaces can be packed with lots of comfort and style! I found several cozy outdoor living spaces that have me feeling inspired and full of new ideas. How about you...what ways do you like spending time outside? Do you have a yard or a terrace or balcony?


  1. Great inspirations! I love summer entertaining and creating great outdoor living spaces to lounge in. We don't get enough warm weather, so enjoying outdoors as much as possible it a must for me!

  2. What fantastic ideas. Esp love the floor cushion ideas in pictures 1 and 2. Now if only the rain Gods would stay away from this part of Canada!

  3. Great ideas. I love all the colors and fabrics.

  4. Oh what wonderful, inspiring spaces. Thank you for sharing!!

  6. my apartment has a patio that's private. when I say private, I mean I can look directly in front of me but the sides are brick. My grandmother sold her house and now lives in an apartment for elderly people. Her balcony isn't private. You step outside and you can look directly into everyone else's space. I dislike that so much and would use spiral bushes and outdoor drapery to create division and privacy.
