Inspiring balconies

17 April, 2013

Yesterday the garden fair Nordic Gardens at Stockholmsmässan, the Stockholm convention centre, ended. This year’s theme was Growing Power from it, I must say that I got a lot of strength and inspiration and now I long even more for spring and for getting started planting my balcony.

Ann Larås, Trädgårdsturisten, and Maria Bremefors, Pomeranshuset, have done a wonderful job with their balcony Cardinal’s celebration in Renaissance garden . It is incredibly well made and detailed. As the group used a wonderful image from Ravello, south of Naples, which we at Photowall printed as photo wallpaper.


The balcony In my green zone by Hillevi Liljeström from Stocksund Garden Design was also inspiring with all the colour and fine details. Among others, I liked the lamp in the shape of a teapot and the birch patterned pallets.


Monika Langlets balcony Colony Longing had so many things right. Carl-Arne Bregers watering can, spice tin cans, flower table in rattan and paper lanterns on the ceiling.


The winner of this year’s balcony exhibition, Agneta Loberg and Maria Fredriksson 1 balcony and kitchen, was absolutely amazing, I think. Just check the lamp and table setting. Creative, clever and neat.
