tropical balcony

Don’t you just love the way this picture combines natural materials with greenery to create a tropical reading nook? We do, so we’ve found everything you need to get this look.

Our picks

Nothing from this balcony is difficult to find. Even so, we’ve done the searching so you don’t have to! Read on for our top picks.

Chair

This wicker egg chair provides comfort with a bit of interest. Alternatively, go with a hanging egg chair if you want a bit more movement in your seat!

Cushion

Tropical cushions are super easy to find. Of course, if you’re decorating an uncovered balcony, make sure you choose waterproof cushion covers.

Side table

This side table is functional and doesn’t attract too much attention away from the statement pieces. Of course, you can always brighten it up with a small vase, as in the picture.

Vase

The floor vase filled with pampas grass is also simple and unassuming but it’s perfectly used alongside the lantern and planters. Check out our guide on pampas grass for other ways to use it on your balcony.

Planters

Woven plant baskets are a big category, and you’ll find them made from all kinds of materials. Jute, seagrass and water hyacinth are best for outdoor use.

Plants

This balcony doesn’t feature many plants. In the picture, you’ll see a monstera (on the left) and ivy (on the right).

Lantern

Woven lanterns are another great way to bring natural materials into your tropical-themed space. Just make sure you use LED candles to avoid a fire!

Rug

This rug is quite small but adds texture to the reading area. While it’s not big enough to cover the whole floor, it’s more than enough to keep your feet warm!
