During the extensive renovation of this Hollywood penthouse condominium, the design team restored the doorway onto the balcony, as well as the original openwork columns and railings, creating a beautiful space to overlook the famed Chateau Marmont and surrounding Hollywood Hills. Located off the penthouse's kitchen, the balcony was previously accessed by a screen door and the ironwork showed significant signs of wear. Now, it's a relaxed, lovely and fully restored spot to unwind and enjoy the view.
Boasting stunning beach and ocean views, the master suite features a modern canopy bed, cozy fur throw and private balcony access. A linear, double-sided fireplace connects the room to the spacious spa-like bathroom, which includes a soaking tub, steam shower and outdoor shower.
This simply chic neutral bedroom features a black wrought iron bed paired with frilly white and gray bed linens, and floral throw pillows. An antique candelabra chandelier hangs overhead, while white louvered doors provide outdoor balcony access. Dark brown hardwood floors add a finishing touch.
To allow the space to fully take advantage of the beautiful view and natural light, designers had an additional sliding glass door added to the master suite. This gives the space another balcony access point as well as highlights the simple, elegant design of the interior space.
On one end of the space, a set of French doors open out onto a private balcony, extending the girl's space for relaxing and entertaining. A long bench sofa gives the girls plenty of seating on the inside, but access to the balcony gives them the option to enjoy the lovely weather.
This master bathroom has an indoor and outdoor feel with French doors allowing access to a balcony beyond the soaking tub. A graphic pattern on the balcony floor works well with the indoor tile floor. A modern, glass chandelier hangs next to the skylight for a great, bright pairing of natural and artificial lighting. A simple black duck outline picture breaks up the blank space on the wall.
This elegant bedroom invites the outdoors in with a stunning view and balcony access. Soft turquoise accents on the bed and bold blue vases add a splash of color to the mostly neutral design. Two mirrored nightstands are adorned with a pair of metallic lamps for some extra pizzazz.
Rooms on the second floor of this French country estate all have a view of the pool from their private Juliet balconies. These balconies are covered by overhangs that match the terra-cotta tile roof. From the first floor, large French doors lead out of the common spaces onto the back patio and landscaped concrete pad around the pool.
A wide room made multiple seating areas possible. Putting two sofas back-to-back to accomplish seating while keeping access to the deck unprohibited. Splattered pattern rugs soften the hickory hardwood floors and create a mirror image in the seating spaces. A rustic fireplace surround creates a grand separation between the two balcony access doors.
A large family room includes ample seating for hanging out together or watching TV. The room sits at the nexus of the open-plan kitchen and a game room with additional television and pool table. French doors lead to a balcony overlooking the home's swimming pool and spa.
A public beach access walkway creates additional space between this New Hampshire beach house and the neighboring one and opens up more panoramic views from the two upper levels of the home. Glass safety walls were chosen for the balcony, limiting the interruption of the views of the sand dunes and Atlantic Ocean.
Sunlight streams onto this dining table from the sliding door providing balcony access. The light and airy look is perfect for the open floor plan of the home. A light, neutral color scheme keeps the look cohesive with the connected room. Tufted dining chairs with nailhead trim surround the smooth, natural wood table. Shrubs in the centerpiece and napkins at the place settings add color to the table.
A spacious patio and a covered balcony allow access to the gorgeous backyard view from any level of this home. Palm trees spaced throughout the yard give tropical decoration around the swimming pool and stone patio. The plant life and grass provide vibrant green color to liven the neutral exterior tones.
