We live just outside of Boston and one of my favorite things to do during the summer is to walk around the city and see the inspiring ways people have turned their balconies and rooftop patios into gorgeous outdoor living spaces.
Outdoor spaces come In all sorts of sizes, from sprawling wrap around porches to tiny balconies in the most urban of settings.
Regardless of the size and location of your outdoor space, there are lots of simple things you can do to turn it into the perfect place to soak in these sunny months!
1. Add Comfort With Textiles

2. Create Instant Mood With Globe Lights
3. Add A Little Whimsy With Natural Elements
4. Consider A Bold Color on Your Door
5. Add Personality with Potted Plants
Hopefully by using these ideas as inspiration, you will be able to turn your porch, patio or balcony into your perfect summer retreat. . . a spot to kick your shoes off and read a book with the kids (or by yourself!) and enjoy the warmer days that are here to stay for the next several months!
