Just be­cause your back­yard re­sem­bles a postage stamp, doesn’t mean you can’t put your feet up for the hol­i­days.

In small spa­ces like bal­conies and court­yards, ev­ery­thing is right by the back door, which in some ways makes set­ting up the per­fect out­door space eas­ier as lines be­tween in­door and out­door spa­ces be­come in­creas­ingly blurred.

Go for flex­i­ble fur­ni­ture, like th­ese pieces from Ikea (left and be­low) where foot­stools can dou­ble as side ta­bles and shelv­ing is strong enough to dou­ble as bench seat­ing.

Fold­ing or stack­able fur­ni­ture is use­ful, too, while lanterns can be strung up be­tween fence lines to take the fun into the even­ing.
