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.)
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.
Above: Erin found ten stylish brackets to hang window boxes over balcony railings; we want them all. See this week’s 10 Easy Pieces for details.
