Outdoor Living with Jardin de Ville

Hello Wednesday and it finally feels like spring in Toronto!  After such a long and cold winter, it is time to think outdoor living and I intend to soak up every bit of sunshine and enjoy the warm summer breeze.  Today, I am dreaming to give my balcony a fresh new look with lots of inspirations from Jardin de Ville, a Canadian leader in both the original design and retail of high-end outdoor furniture.

Since 1956, the Quebec-based luxurious outdoor company strives to offer Canadians and clients from around the globe high-quality products of impeccable design that are comfortable and functional.  With unparalleled dedication on innovation, refinement, and introduction of newest trends on forms, colors, and materials, Jardin de Ville delights their customers through sight, touch, thought, and well-being.


So what am I up to for my small balcony in the city you ask?  Before I show you my game plan, here is my balcony featured in Style at Home a few years back, and I am up for a complete makeover to give my outdoor oasis a new personality.

From sleek and sophisticated to bright, relaxed, and stylish living, this is my dream balcony with new favorites from Jardin de Ville 2018 Summer Collection!



Seating is the fundamental building block in my balcony.  Decent in size but the irregular sharp of the balcony presents a challenge on furniture selection and placement.  The Siena collection offers great flexibility in configuration and in my case, a combination of center and corner module fits perfectly along the angled wall.  Pairing with one or a pair of Lara lounge chairs, I am almost ready for my first summer party this year!  

I love how the relaxed yet structured weave texture on the Lara lounge chair compliments the streamline and angular aesthetic of the Siena module pieces.  What do you think?      


To echo the weave motif and for instant drama and ambiance, I am adding a couple of Macao lamps.  Constructed by synthetic wicker made from artificial fibers, the Macao lamps are soft to the touch and are resistant to natural elements including UV rays and salt water.  

I am also looking for practical yet attractive storage to house my summer party essentials.  Well, check out these Boîte boxes!  Made with aluminum and teak, these boxes are super chic and best of all, they also come in white to work seamlessly with my light, resort style palette.  

Of course an outdoor oasis wouldn't be completed without lush plant materials and statement planters.  These flower boxes had me at hello and I am ready to hit my local nursery for some tropical favorites.


I can't wait to meet and feel these fantastic pieces in person and lucky for us living in Toronto, Jardin de Ville has a brand new Summer Showroom to help Torontonians to be patio-ready for the gorgeous summer months to come! Located in the Castlefield Design District, you are in for a treat to experience a multitude of collections including Manutti, Royal Botania, Roda, and Cane-Line.  

Before you check out Jardin de Ville online and in person, I am giving away a $500 gift card to help you kick-start your outdoor living project! To enter, simply visit my instagram account, tag a friend on my Jardin de Ville posts and let me know which item you love!  One winner will be randomly selected on Sunday May 4th. 

Happy shopping at Jardin de Ville
