As someone who wrote books himself, I know how much hard word, passion, and endurance a book project requests from its writer. So when my friends Julia and Gregor of Studio Faubel approached me last year to be part of their new book ‘Tiny Balcony’ I was all game to support them. Not only as a token of my friendship, but also because I really love my tiny urban jungle balcony. And having it featured in a book about tiny balconies was just a perfect match.
Last year in autumn they came to visit me and brought Ling Khor along, the amazing photographer of these images. We had a very fun afternoon shooting and since Ling was in full photography mode, she even snapped a few images of my home apart from the balcony. Today I am sharing a few images here. But I invite you to get a copy of ‘Tiny Balcony’ especially if you have a small balcony or terrace. Why you may wonder. Let me tell you.
‘Tiny Balcony’ is not only about nice balconies and its owners. It is about smart solutions to enhance your tiny balcony. And all of these ideas are actually simple DIYs with full step-by-step instructions how to create such solutions for your own balcony. Gregor of Studio Faubel built every solution himself and installed it on the balconies. In my case, the two blue frames were custom made by Gregor including a trellis and lots of space for extra plant pots. The blue idea came from Gregor himself as he wanted to visually extend the blue tiles in the adjacent kitchen. Smart guy! In total, the book features 12 different small balconies with different purposes. So there’s something for everyone!
The book will be published on May 6th by GU publishing and is available in German. For more details, check out their site HERE. I can’t wait to get hold of my copy soon! And now I am off to enjoy my tiny balcony!

Can’t wait to read the book!
It’s really amazing for everyone who has a small balcony – packed with cool DIY ideas!
Ooh a book!
It already looks like such an oasis, really inspiring; I think this year has been a very good one for gardeners and flower shops.
Thank you Milla!
I’m sure that balcony is small, but the way you set it up makes it look huge!
PS: love the table!
Thank you Alex!! It is truly small but I wanted to create a dense urban jungle feeling so I hope I succeeded haha. And that table is really a gem, I love it very much! It’s a Moroccan mosaic table I found on eBay.
This is an idea about a tiny balcony it’s something great. I’m also writing one content about a small design balcony. You can see it on my web. I support my blogger friends.
Just go on, I m gonna read some of your articles 🙂
Hi Igor — I have this same wooden monkey! It was my grandma’s and I’ve always felt it brought good vibes into my home. Where did you get yours and is there a story? Love your style! 🙂
Thanks Erica! I got the monkey from a Scandinavian design shop a while ago. Always wanted to have one as it is playful, fun but at the same time a real Scandinavian design icon.
Is there a version in English?
As far as I know not yet unfortunately.
