A Garden Shed of One’s Own

Do you ever wish you had a light and airy space away from the house to escape to now and again? I know I do. Somewhere to make a mess, without the need to clear it away come dinner time. Now that’s what I call luxury. Especially if it has enough space for multiple projects all at the same time. I dream of a room where I can lay out moodboards, take photographs, even arrange flowers, and not be in anyone’s way. I can leave it all for another day when inspiration runs out, know that it will be untouched by inquisitive hands, and I can tidy up when I like.  Somewhere also that is quiet and calm and I can just sit down with a book and a coffee if the mood takes me.

This ‘shed’ is my absolute ideal.

A Garden Shed of One's Own

It might be bigger than your average garden shed but let’s all dream a little. It’s big enough to entertain in, but I think I’d be selfish and keep it all for myself. With a sink and a stove I could disappear for days. And with several cushioned armchairs to sit in, it’s not lacking in comfort either.

White walls and a stripped pine floor are the perfect backdrop for vintage and reclaimed furniture. The unfinished plaster walls and pops of chipped green paint are perfect just as they are. Plus it’s full of interesting bits and pieces to grab when a picture needs a prop.

Just filling this space with reclaimed pieces, old paintings and chairs needing some attention, conjures up many happy weekends scouring car boot sales. No hardship there.

The the addition of rattan chairs (and screen!), wicker pendant lights and large healthy plants add to the general atmosphere of a well loved room.

Not to mention the industral wall lights, belfast sink and copper piping. Nothing contemporary has been allowed through the door and that’s just as it should be.

And yes, you’ve guessed it. It’s a space also used for photographic shoots.
