Urban Jungle Bloggers: Green balcony

24 april 2014 | By | 10 Comments

It’s getting more sunny by the day – well at least it does in Rotterdam. I reprogrammed my biorhythm to get home earlier in the evening to enjoy the last sunlight and have diner on my balcony. Just the motivation I needed to start and create my own little urban jungle. Earlier I shared my new balcony ideas, but for now I just added some more green to create a more colorful balcony. While visiting Igor’s blog (Happy Interior blog) I saw this awesome monthly Urban Jungle Bloggers theme from happy bloggers all around the world. This month I join the fun with the theme  “Show your green balcony” . Enjoy the first look of my Urban Jungle in progress with bright yellows, fresh greens and warm wood.

Living in the centre of Rotterdam automatically creates an urban vibe when it comes to creating your own little garden with the space you’ve got. Although I love the color of concrete, the wooden flooring by IKEA creates a more warm look. The little bistro set is cozy but not enough for having more than just one friend over. That’s the reason I made new plans for my green balcony. The bright yellow cushion by H&M Home adds a little Caribbean touch and inspired me for a healthy snack from yoghurt and pineapple. Birds in the city are rare, besides pigeons and seagulls, so I adopted another Pols Potten singing bird :). All together I really love my urban green balcony. I just can’t wait to realize my ideas and finish it all together for summer. Hope you like it to!

  1. What a fantastic balcony, Johan! You have no idea how much I envy you for this green outdoor oasis at your home! Thank you so much for joining our green family:-)


      Thanks Igor! I love to be part of the green family 😉

  2. Wat een gezellig balkon, Johan! En helemaal leuk dat je het opnieuw inricht om er samen met vrienden van te kunnen genieten. Prachtig ook die donkergroene kleur op de muur, heel onverwacht, maar het staat erg mooi bij de planten en het gele kussen. Erg leuk dat je meedoet deze maand trouwens! fijne donderdag!


      Dankjewel Judith! Wat leuk dat je reageert! Jij ook een hele fijne donderdag en gaaf om eens meer binnen te kijken bij jou trouwens, alsof je van kleur naar kleur springt 🙂

  3. The plants look great set against that jade green wall. I like the tropical styling!

  4. Gaat lekker zeg! Coole foto’s!


      Dankjewel Patrick! Stijlen is inderdaad een kwestie van proberen en doen 🙂
