Pink, lime, yellowish, beige and blue hues look very beautiful and impressive, and you can also use pale metallic colors. The colors of the balcony will be harmonious if they are combined with the colors of the next room. Such a solution will allow you to create a single room, but with the division into functional areas.
When choosing colors for the materials necessary for finishing the room, it is necessary to take into account the dimensions of the space. For small balconies, a tree is not always the best solution because it visually reduces the room. If you still decide to use wood in the decoration, then you need to find light shades. Amber tones are a good choice, over time wood materials darken a bit.

If you choose the Provencal style, you can use textured plaster to decorate walls or bricks in muted colors. Forged shelves and wardrobes fit perfectly with the chosen style, if the loggia does not have room for this type of furniture, then you can simply place a refined flower stand on it. The pastel shutters of the windows complement this elegant interior perfectly.

Beige walls are flowers ideally highlighted with chocolate shades, while under blue walls blue flowers will suit. The design in light yellow tones is spectacular with plants in brilliant lemon colors.

If the space on the balcony is very small, then the folding table and chairs are perfect. To place a square shape, you can use a wooden bench (or even an original chest).
It will be better if the window frames are also made of wood. Modern plastic does not fit into this style. If there is no other choice, the plastic should be chosen to match the color of the tree. You should also take care of a wide window sill.
