I'm with you, hiddenexposures! I spent the last few weekends looking for the right patio furniture to fit a medium sized balcony. I'm not a fan of metal (I'm lounging, not correcting my posture) or super modern bistro tables nor do I love Adirondack chairs or wicker----trying to find a happy medium has been tiresome!

I bought this cute (I hope) table in red on Kmart.com (online only):

Bamboo fencing from home depot, string lights from world market and the rest - well I'm still digging for furniture to sit on. Cushions would be more comfortable than most patio furniture.

so sweet - kind of like Candyland goes to India.
I'm running around trying to pull my patio together and love love the green outdoor patio rug - where did you find it?
Thanks for the inspiration, Maria!

I'm working the look right now. My bedroom apartment has really odd windows so there's very little wall space (plus the building manager insists on putting up those very Floridian plastic horizontal shades).
If you hang them high, they give your room the illusion that it's larger than it really is. Or taller.
Of all the neat things I'd love to put behind my bed (headboard, large photo collage) it's not my favorite, but we make it work.
I like the dark heavy fabric; it gives the illusion of a "headboard" like background. Light colors can be pretty but don't have the same effect.
