What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Plant supports can be installed in planters, too. The climbing plant can then extend upwards, like here, up to the height of the support provided.
Accentuate the wallsAdd pizzazz to your balcony walls with a stunning outdoor weathered-material wall hanging or artwork. It is possible to weatherproof paintings with polyurethane spray sealers or other similar treatments and make them suitable for outdoor use. In open spaces like these, metallic sheets that are designed as artwork could be used too. This backdrop adds interest to the balcony and is complemented with matching cushions on the divan. The big planters on either side help bring out the vibrant palette of the artwork without making the space seem overcrowded.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
7. Watercolor backdrop. The exterior sides of the home, free-standing outdoor walls and wooden fences all serve as blank canvases in the garden. Use the vertical space to hang an outdoor painting, piece of weathered metal or carved wooden panel to add interest to the space. Here, an abstract color-washed painting hung on an outdoor wall creates a beautiful backdrop for a seating area.
