Sure, the winter months give us all a legit reason to hibernate, enjoy cozy throws, and endless cocoa, but you've got to admit that when those rays start peeking through the clouds, the happiness barometer practically overflows. 

If you've been staring half lovingly and half "what the hell happened there" at your balcony — that may or may not resemble a shriveled plant graveyard right now — it's time for a change. Swapping out rusty furniture, leaking buckets, and a distinct lack of green for blossoming small balcony vibes is the way to embrace the spring season.

So no more excuses, it's time to get busy out there are prep for more sunshine and socializing, no matter how tiny your apartment balcony may be. The good news is, the tinier the space, the cuter the result — not to mention less maintenance. It's all about blurring the boundaries between inside-out living by extending the comfort and style of your cute apartment into your outdoor space. Think outdoor lounge chairs for lazing around on, punchy water-resistant textiles, and scattered ambient lighting for a gorgeous setup.

Let's get shopping.
