Is your city apartment making you long for the open sky and the green outdoors?

Find a new purpose for your balcony and take some visual cues from Christine and Aman Rai’s villa in the mountains of Kasauli. Wide cosy wrought iron armchairs upholstered in earthy hued fabrics can bring an all-natural vibe of comfort. Get a wood planked flooring to inspire the effect of soil.

Fashion teakwood stool tables alongside to stack your journals or support your iPhone dock. Hang birdcage lanterns for a fairy tale feel and finish with your choice of fresh greens.
