May 26, 2014

Welcome to the outdoors. We consider Memorial Day the official kickoff to summer in the city, and we’ll be spending the week visiting some of our favorite balconies, terraces, and fire escapes (hoping for a breeze).

Join us for an exclusive look at 66 Square Feet blogger Marie Viljoen’s new terrace garden–she recently decamped from Brooklyn to head uptown to Harlem. We’ll also share some foolproof tips for creating an adorable small scale garden of your own. (Start with stylish brackets to hang your window box from a railing–we’ve found 10 choices–and add our favorite folding furniture.)

Tuesday

Above: In this week’s Steal This Look, Erin shows us how to turn a city balcony into an instant outdoor room…with a little help from Ikea.

Wednesday

Thursday

Above: Here in Harlem, the weather’s fine. Cookbook author Marie Viljoen of 66 Square Feet shows us around her new uptown balcony in this week’s Garden Visit.

Friday

Above: Moss is having a moment, as Margot discovers. She gives us the lowdown on colored live reindeer moss. Wondering about some of the 1,001 ways to use moss? See DIY: A Desktop Zen Garden.

Check out what’s going on over at Remodelista this week, where we have a full report on Modest Modern style.
