A beautiful terrace design makes the most of natural light and airflow. Interesting ceilings – whether angled, with skylights or laced with branches, help to achieve this, while still providing a modicum of shade.

If traditional flower beds aren’t for you, get on trend by decorating with succulents.

A great balcony design often comes down to making the most of a small space. Keep it interesting by combining different shapes, like a circular table with rectangular benches in soft white and grey. If white is too plain for you, try pastel colors for a sweet touch. Instead of taking up too much ground space with plants, use a hanging or wall feature to add some greenery. Need more ideas?
