In the spirit of this 40 degree weather we are living in today I decided to write a post about our outdoor space.
After a visit to my parents house last month in Montreal, I returned home to Toronto's concrete jungle and truly missed the greenery that is the suburban life... and my childhood backyard.
Since then I made it my mission to create our 135 square foot balcony into a little outdoor haven.
Thankfully late last summer we jumped at the occasion to buy our patio set at 75% off the original price. I also recently found the dark brown and red pillows in the picture bellow at Homesense. But still it looked drab out there amongst the greys and beige facades of neighboring buildings.
I recently came across Joan's Etsy shop Home living and fell in love with her handmade pillows. I ordered the blue Greek key and yellow chevron print pillows last week and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Finally our outdoor space is coming together. It now feels inviting and we love to sit out there with a morning coffee or 5 o'clock Mojito. We are still working on a possible outdoor carpet and some greenery... more pics to come as we progress.
If you are looking to add some color in your home or outdoor living space check out Joan's website. Her pillow cases are extremely reasonably priced. Here are a couple that I also enjoyed.
