Inspiration: Styling a Garden Room
Today we have been really busy working with our lovely visual merchandiser Gemma to style a Garden room for the beautiful Lazy Susan cabins. Donna, the store manager of Feather & Black Chichester, made sure that we kept it practical and didn’t get carried away with filling the room with beautiful furniture and she chose us for an Evie Day bed- perfect for pulling out to have a nap on; and a Salisbury desk and bookcase for a stylish work space.
Gemma says ‘The best way to style a room, whether it’s a garden room or a bedroom is to mix beautiful pattern with indulgent textures like cashmere and silks to make it feel cosy and homely. I took inspiration from the countryside and accessorised a subtle palette of creams and whites with bold floral pattern and natural woods.’
The floral wallpaper from Graham Sanderson brings the outside in, and the soft throws and cushions make it feel like a place to escape too- a little hideaway at the bottom of your garden.
I hate to mention the recession ( it’s a word we hear too often) , but as many are deciding to stay in their home instead of moving building a refuge in your garden is the perfect way to create some more space. And they brighten up your garden; we love the painted pastel green colour (it matches my Zara mint coloured jeans that I'm wearing today!)
