This modern outdoor space, with its pop of vibrant Rangwali, is the perfect antidote to grey skies. But you don’t need a balcony to capture the spirit of this scheme in your own home – the inside of an arbour, the side of a shed, and even garden furniture and plant pots can be brought up to date with bold hues.

Small courtyards and outdoor spaces can be just as homely as large gardens and should be seen as an extension of the interior. By picking out the planting with a couple of spiked garden lights and highlighting the brick wall texture with wall downlights, you can draw focus to the elements you want to see.

How do I make the most of my balcony?

A balcony can be the smallest of the terraces and outdoor spaces, but, unless you have a juliet balcony, you’ll still be able to make the most of it with a few design touches, here and there.

If you like to throw open your balcony doors and let the light and air flow in, you could think about extending your room out onto the balcony with balcony furniture that matches the interiors or colours of your room. Smart furniture, neat balcony planters and coffee tables will make you feel like you’ve brought the indoors outdoors.

If you have a glass balcony or a balcony with rails that looks out over a street or nearby neighbours, then you may want to shield your balcony terrace from prying eyes. It’s a shame to block out the edges of a balcony completely, so consider potted plants or high balcony planters to act as a shield. The leaves and flowers of your plants will obscure the view onto your balcony but still let in light and air.

For small balconies, look for slim furniture, such as slim console tables, benches and shelves so you can still display ornaments, plants and knick knacks but without cluttering the space too much.
