Balconies are such a delight, and for so many reasons.
They look wonderful on a facade, usually adding depth and variety at the very least. You might also get a cool pattern in the balustrade or the corbels and that's even better.
Plus, urban residents tend to enjoy balconies--I've lived without one in the past and I really hope I'll never have to do that again. So when I see a balcony I feel happy for the people who live there and assume their quality of life is a little better for it.
Finally, balconies make sense in climates where you'd like to be out-of-doors for a good part of the year. That alone is a very happy thought.
This is a good balcony. It looks peaceful. The white and black combination is pleasant and I like this iron balustrade, the little curls and near symmetry of it. The corbels are boring, but they're getting the job done.
