FOR THE HOME: our outdoor living room

Rooftop Living Room: Our Perfect Outdoor Space For Summer | Bikinis & Passports

Our rooftop deck is without a doubt my favorite “room” of the apartment. It is like a second living room outside.

Basically, Tulln is a big fat gardening paradise, with some amazing nurseries for everything your green thumb may desire (we went to Praskac because they are open on Sundays). Due to the fact that my thumb is not so green, I had to replace all of our plants this year as they looked a little worse for wear after the Winter….
