Viceroy Inspired Balcony

The clock is ticking towards moving day, woo hoo! One of my many requirements when looking for our new apartment was that it had to have some outdoor space.  Ours does, and even though it might be small, it will be mighty fine.  A sweet little perch for me and The BF to sip cocktails and watch the sunset over the city. Decor plans already underway, here’s what I’m thinking…

I am very inspired by the poolside cabanas at the Santa MonicaViceroy

 I mean, HELLO?! It’s the ultimate. K Dub designed, al fresco, lounge spot.

It’s a no brainer.  But how am I gonna pull it off?

Obviously our little balcony isn’t quite as grand….

But it has a sweet view…

And I can whip up something black and white and tropical all over.  Here’s how…

I know I will love it, I just hope The BF does too.  He has already informed me that I have to take all of the outdoor pillows in at night so they don’t get dirty.  I was cracking up, until I realized he was being serious.  Oh lawd, co-ed cohabitation is he-lar-ious.

UPDATE: Upon further inspection I have detected a horse head of sorts at the Viceroy. Take a closer look…

Now I think I really do need to buy these vintage horse head ashtrays I found at an Antique Mall a few weeks ago.

Beautiful display, no? Here’s a close up.

Do I need em?  They are ridiculously cheap.  I’m trying to cut back on my hoarding collecting, but I will probably never find something better.  Thoughts?  Comments?  Feedback?  I need reassurance and validation on my crazy purchases. Sometimes…

  1. Those would be beyond outside! And small enough to fit on your fab balcony! Those horses, with the black and white stripes and all the green – stop it! Love!

  2. I hear you! I am saving to buy a condo and that is one of my musts too–a balcony. An outdoor area is very important!

  3. Get them ASAP!!! Perfect size for posting a coctail!

  4. YES get the ashtrays. I have a similar balcony and furniture and there’s not much room for a table without it looking cluttered. I need something to set my cocktail on though! Those ashtrays look like the perfect size to put a cocktail on.

  5. Yes you need those ashtrays! I have one myself and just love it… The Viceroy is a dreamy little spot for sure. I borrowed a little inspiration for our poolside bar cabana as well…
