If you have been following me on my adventure at Project Rental, here is a little update: the interior rooms are almost completed with a few final details to go into the den/ dining room. Now with summer being right around the corner, my client (a.k.a. friend of 20 years since Grade 8) has eagerly asked me to transform her balcony from scratch. Well ... not entirely from scratch. This bare balcony comes with a tailored, relaxed, palm beach inspired patio set my friend scored at HomeSense.
My initial thought for the space is about the layering of patterns in a fresh navy and white palette for a cool, sail boat ready, nautical vibe. Not too crazy about the red cushions that came with the set, I have sourced a polka dot, a stripe, and two solid fabrics (one in navy and one in white) to give the chairs a brand new look. I also need a rug and this set of three 3x5 chevron fun at HomeSense gives the space an instant shot of bold graphical presence. Add a pretty white porcelain stool and a couple of pillows in minty blue as accent, my ground work here is done ... or so I thought.
A short visit to Style Garage has pulled the rug under my feet, literally. The round sea grass rug has opened my eyes for possibilities, and these stools with natural wood frame construction and the luxe, soft hide padded seats just made me wanting more.
Then a minty sensational beauty at HomeSense struck gold and now I know what to do: I am adding a casual dining area in the balcony and I want to enrich my original navy and white palette with more colors + a touch of nature.
Ready for my final idea board? I think you do. This is the winner idea at #Project Balcony!

Now for the dining area, I am in love with the minty bistro table and the new stools at Style Garage. Instead of going with an ordinary ground covering, I am super happy to have found this natural beauty with a scallop edge. With the fun birdie plates from Kate Spade and braided napkin rings from Indigo, my work here is done. I can't wait to see #Project Balcony comes to life.
