Cushions and blankets

This will be key to adding warmth and comfort to your balcony. If you don’t have much space for a modular sofa you can use a nice rattan chair, add a cushion and a small table.

If you want something more calm or romantic you can use neutral colors on the cushions, they can be entire color or with subtle patterns.

Don’t forget the blankets to continue enjoying summer even at night when the temperature drops a little.

Candles

Candles around or at the foot of the balcony, on the table maybe. You simply cannot miss candles in your deco if you want to achieve a hygge look. Candles at night will look very beautiful and will give a very cozy look on your balcony.

Whether they are inside lanterns, glass jars or outdoor candles, you will not regret including them in your deco.

You can also use small lanterns with LED lights that can be hung from the ceiling of your balcony.

Use pots in natural color and neutral as white and gray, and plants with only green foliage if you want a sober look.

If yours is a calm and cheerful style you can use white, pastel yellow and pink pots. I would also include some roses or colored flowers in some pots or hanging from the balcony or a wall.
