Vicky Pattison has proven that you don't need a huge garden to create your very own outdoor sanctuary during the coronavirus lockdown. The Celebrity MasterChef finalist and her boyfriend Ercan Ramadan have transformed the balcony at their apartment into a "secret garden in the sky", and it looks like an idyllic spot to sit and relax.
Sharing a series of photos of the balcony space on Instagram, Vicky showed how they have added an outdoor sofa and two garden chairs with a geometric print black-and-white rug on the floor, and lights strung across the railing.

Vicky and Ercan have added to the ambiance with lanterns on the floor, and a selection of plants scattered around. "Our little secret garden in the sky is finally almost finished… I'm sorry I couldn't get a better picture – it's only a small space but it's beautiful and I'm so proud of it!" The 32-year-old revealed she got the idea for the space from Pinterest, and worked with Wayfair to bring the vision to life.
