I was watching QVC the other day and this gentleman, below, obviously had to work from home due to Covid. Yet, he was still trying to convince me to buy gardening equipment despite clearly not having a garden. At some points you can almost see the desperation in his eyes as he pretends to strenuously dig out a tree which he just purchased from the garden centre.
But still, it’s a reasonable pastiche of a grassy, planty garden. You don’t necessarily need to have the ground beneath your feet in order to have a garden. We’ll have a look at 1 BILLION (it’s more like 78) awesome masculine balconies for your apartment.
Ideally you will look like this after spending time in your balcony garden. All though balcony gardens don’t JUST have to be about plants. You may also want hardy out door furniture and decor items on your garden balcony. A cool male living space in an apartment with a balcony won’t be complete without an awesome balcony feature. Somewhere to have breakfast or a beer after work (or before, whatever floats your boat); somewhere to read on a warm night; somewhere to get some vitamin D; or, somewhere to get sunburnt.
This isn’t a guide, or a ‘how to’ because you don’t really need a guide in order to put pots of plants onto a balcony; maybe we’ll chuck out a few general tips. This is more of a lust-list of cool ideas for a garden balcony which will hopefully inspire you if you have a balcony already, or are hoping to get a place with a balcony.
You’ll notice some repeated design themes which are popular with cool balcony gardens, one being the outdoor string lights in the below fashion, which you can purchase inexpensively in a whole variety of sizes and lengths et cetera. Click through the link below to see some, including the one shown and that is the one and only advertorial I can be bothered to put on this page; the rest is just pure cool balcony garden ideas.
The balconies below range from the subtle to the sublime, from small to, I cannot afford that ever, please stop showing me things like that.
Cube storage space goes by many names, cubby shelves, cube shelves and cube bookshelves; ad nauseum; they are an increasingly popular item of furniture due to their utility and customization. You can add your record collection to one cube, some books to another block, an ornament in a different block blah blah. I’ve noticed that […]
We previously did 20 masculine reading corners for your home, now we are doing a – sort of – sequel with 20 mid-century modern reading corners for masculine living spaces. At the end of the article we will masterfully photoshop our very own inspired – totally original – mid-century modern reading nook idea for a […]
We have so many articles here on Furnish Him about how to arrange your living space; but what about how not to arrange your living space? There are so many advertorial living space images out there with decor designs that are almost too cool; and they may influence some to try and imitate them, resulting […]
Once again, our editors have scrolled enviously through omefinestay.com at the most expensive luxury houses you can stay at; we have no affiliation with the site, and most people can’t afford the ridiculous prices for these places… However, some of the luxury houses are pretty good barometers for interesting and trendy decor styles you could […]
Butterfly chairs were first created by inventor and Englishman, Joseph Beverly Fenby, in the 19th century; then known as the Fenby folding chair. The more modern butterfly chairs are based on an updated Argentine design (ah, they couldn’t take the Falkland Islands from the Brits but they got the butterfly chair!). In the middle of […]
Exposed brick walls have an industrial and real feel to it. Perhaps in our materialistic, plastic, epoch that we find ourselves in we are drawn to more solid and authentic décor; something which reflects life and earth – rather than cheap throw-away plastics and synthetics. No joke, some anthropologists are saying the amount of plastic […]
