20 Dreamy Bohemian Balcony Ideas

Balcony space, more often than not, becomes the least of the priorities when it comes to decoration or beautification in a home.

Do you agree?

Let us admit it, we do not normally spend time in a balcony especially if you are living in a city where you only get to see your home when it is time for you to get some rest at the end of a busy day.

Think of this.

We normally have so little time to hang out outside on our balcony that it stays unnoticed. This may not be true for everyone but for most people who spend their time at work, this is the reality. It often goes unnoticed. Since most balconies in the city are quite small, it usually ends up leaving it as it is – untouched.

This year I challenge you to give time to create and be creative. Embrace the new year with full of ideas that may change your perspective and view about life in a positive way.

How can you do that?

Start by bringing your balcony to life. Take a small step to refresh your home’s aura by making use of your balcony for relaxation or simply sipping that morning coffee at, to get that positive energy you needed for your everyday endeavor.

Maximize your small balcony by using bespoke storage that could double as a bench where you can sit and relax and at the same time keep your pillows and throws when not in use. You could also custom build hanging planters to hold your greens and not take much of your already limited space.

This balcony is so dreamy! Adding a hanging string ball lights on an accent wood panel wall with hanging planters gives off a hippie and youthful vibe. Plus it creates a romantic mood that is great for relaxation or hanging out with friends or someone really special. The color scheme used in the decor -pillowcases, carpet, and throws, take a cue from the plants surrounding it.

What is not to love in this setup? Every single detail is a pleasant sight to see. Make your bohemian balcony glam by adding a touch of gold to your decor, in this case, the lovely area rug on zebra print. The pop of pink that brings in a feminine flair and the faux fur on the hanging wicker chair exudes glam and sophistication. The tropical plants that resonate on the pillowcase create a unified look. This is one incredible design!

Fit in two sofas to create a cozy space. Fill it with lots of pillows and throws in colors and fun patterns you want for a more snugly and intimate feel. If you are not a fan of fairy lights, you could use light bulb garland instead. Hang it on your balcony wall or railings for some romantic bohemian accent. My personal favorite in this balcony decoration is the potted lavender hang on the basket hooks and tea candle lights. It adds whimsy and charm to the space.
