Window Boxes & Faux Balconies

window boxes, faux balconies

I adore window boxes and false balconies!!!
Adding window boxes filled with flowers can radically change the facade of a building.



Beacon Hill in Boston

I think the window boxes mounted on the second story 
adds charm to this already pretty home.


There is no limit to what you can use.

Just fill with flowering plants and mount to a wall, door , or a window.

This really says "NYC SPRING"

Faux Balcony

What could do more for a structure than a faux balcony?

I have found a great source for both window boxes & faux balconies.
It is at the bottom of this post.

BIG BENEFIT to faux balconies:

I Need A Rock

It is finally beginning to warm up...

there are signs of life ....
the trees are sprouting tiny chartreuse leaves.

The forsythia are just now starting to bloom.
The tulips are beyond confused

And so am I.

 Last Thursday I went sailing with a friend and it was beyond divine.
Not a cloud in the sky.
Sun.
Warmth.
I really thought that I had died and gone to heaven.


my girl JOEY

Yes.
It was a good day.
One of the best that I have had since my move here.

 
The next day I worked in the yard with my mother
and it was a typically dismal and chilly.
We mulched, raked leaves and planted.

The very next day was Saturday and I went to work,
and at work I wear an orange apron.
I guess things could be worse.
Really? Could they?

I began to wait on a man,
he looked so familiar to me { I never forget a face}
so I asked him where he was from.
He said " Boca Raton Florida"
and at that very second I knew where I knew him from.
He looked at me and said;
" Oh, You're the girl with the little showroom in Royal Palm Plaza"

I quickly looked around for a rock to crawl under...


I said yes, "How nice to see you again."
I felt like I needed to explain myself....
Why was I up here, why was I working at a big box store
wearing and orange apron....

I wanted to tell him 
that I was 
in the witness protection program!!!
I didn't.

Anyway, I have more to tell about a man in my life, I will tell more later.
I Hope all are doing well and having a great summer.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
