How to decorate & furnish your favourite garden room
Shed Decor shows how, with the right combination of colours, fabrics, furniture and accessories, anyone can turn an outdoor building into a favourite garden room. Whether you have a large outdoor studio or a tiny hut for one, you will learn how to transform your humble shed into a cherished and enviable living space for year-round entertaining and enjoyment.
Outdoor rooms are special places. During the cooler months, we shelter inside, hidden away from the stresses and strains of daily life while indulging in a favourite pastime, such as curling up with a good book or painting our latest masterpiece. Come the summer, we throw open the doors and welcome the pleasures of entertaining and everyday life, whether it’s breakfast with birdsong, convivial meals at sunset or drinks parties with family and friends. An important buffer between home and garden, sheds are the ultimate place in which to unwind after work, somewhere we can enjoy being outside without worrying about the weeds or letting the weather spoil the fun. When it comes to decoration, these important outdoor rooms deserve as much thought as any room within the house; they come to life when filled with furniture and decoration, lighting and fabrics. And, with a bit of planning and the right choice of materials, they can be used all year round, regardless of the weather. The first part of the book, Shed Decor Styles, outlines six different decorating approaches: the Rustic Shed, the Vintage Shed, the Plain & Simple Shed, the Recycled Shed, the Retro Shed and the Country Shed. Sally Coulthard offers advice and suggestions on how to create beautiful and useable living spaces, with ‘Essentials’ features to help you pin down the right accessories to get the look you want, and lots of eye-catching real-life case studies to inspire shed envy.
Shed Decor Basics takes you through all the practical considerations, including wall treatments, flooring options, how to fit out your shed with heat and power, choices for fabrics and furniture, and ideas for good-looking and handy storage. Shed Decor is an indispensable guide to creating the perfect shed interior. Whether you want a cool contemporary space or the mix-and-match charm of vintage living, this book explores all the elements you need to bring together an outdoor room with flair.
