This week has been a little bit of a whirlwind coming back from holiday! So much so, that unfortunately I’ve not had a minute spare to make or edit a video for this regular Saturday slot. Sorry! I’m hoping to have one up next Saturday though.
In place of the video, I thought I’d share with you a little peek inside my garden office, which was installed at the end of last year at the bottom of our garden. You may have already seen photos of it on Instagram and Snapchat. It’s not grand by any means! Bijoux would be more apt a description. But it’s just what I wanted as an alternative place for me to escape to…my little sanctuary.
I’ve only been using it for the last month or so, since the weather’s warmed up. And I’ve found that I get lots of work done there. The wi-fi from our house reaches it…which is a huge bonus! Admittedly, there are occasional blips in connectivity, but I’ve got a Vodafone Mobile Device with a PAYG SIM as back-up.
I tend to head out there in the afternoons, with a cuppa, for a couple of hours or so, as a break from my office indoors, a spare bedroom in our house. I love having the doors wide open, hearing birdsong and buzzing bees. And it’s even a lovely place to be when it’s raining.
When I was planning how the room was going to look, it’ll come as no surprise to you that I set up a Pinterest board! Here it is, if you’d like to see.
The shed itself is from Waltons, and here are links to what I furnished it with :
- Hera Wicker Armchair from John Lewis
- Tony Task Lamp from John Lewis
- Slubby Cotton Cushion in Steel from John Lewis
- Cato White Desk from Habitat
- Ginny White Office Chair from Habitat
- Gurli Throw from Ikea
- Jasmine Candle by Robbie Honey
- Garden Dining Chair in White from Out There Interiors (which was kindly gifted to me)
I’m still planning on adding a few bits and pieces to accessorise it. But I hope you’ve enjoyed this little look around. Who would have thought when I wrote this blog post back in 2014, that my garden shed dream would come true?!
