Choose a design that enhances your homeIf you live in a stately home with many rooms leading onto your garden, then a traditional conservatory connected to one or two of these rooms can be a wonderful thing. But for most of us, the available space to link to the outside tends to be somewhat limited, so why not exploit that connection to the full? Think about the pleasurable elements of a traditional conservatory – a transitional space flooded with light, a place to sit and enjoy views to a garden – and add in a contemporary twist. Rather than ‘sticking on’ a conservatory, create somewhere that spatially and visually connects the inside to the outside. A garden room can be just that – an actual room that can be used all year round, and that brings the garden into the heart of your home.
Black, white and grey concrete tiles adorn the floor of the outdoor terrace, nodding to the Victorian heritage of the building. Pieces such as the Haçienda poster add a really personal feel – one of the owners was a DJ at the club. ‘It was important we left them plenty of space to display their keepsakes,’ says Brian.
