Balconies

It’s something very special with these balconies from 1950’s. It’s typical for this decade with balconies that’s cantilevered, in concrete & with steel railings – often in canvas or in corrugated steel sheet for protection or privacy.

Interior

Sometimes I ponder about how big an area you really need, without feeling trapped. I have a preference for smaller homes, that can decorate functionally with what’s needed for everyday life. The main thing is access to an outdoor area. Either way, this interior is an example of a living room in a size that fits. And looks good.
