Decorating and designing your home should never be confined to the insides. Your outdoor area is just as important and should be treated with the same pride and care, even if it is the size of a Juliet balcony.
A few simple pots of herbs or seasonal flowers can brighten up any dull areas, or even outdoor hurricane vases with large white candles can make any area more homely and enjoyable to be around.
Before heading to the shops, check out eBay or even Gumtree and find any unusual looking or even antique garden pots, urns and outdoor furniture (some of which can come with plants included from their abandoned homes), and get creative adding your own special touch.
I found this wrought iron garden bench at a garage sale for $80, cleaned it up and painted it with black gloss paint. It is now the perfect spot to watch Rocco play in our tiny backyard and works well with the existing interior and exterior theme.
