5 Ideas To Create A Charming Rustic Garden Room!

rustic inspired garden office

Rustic garden rooms can have a farmhouse and olde worlde charm, provided you style the interiors correctly. Of course, the fact your garden room is made of wood means you’re halfway there – especially if the timber is heavy and has a warm appearance such as mahogany rather than light pine.

Wooden fittings and accessories can certainly bring a rustic feel to the garden room, especially major furniture items such as a large writing desk, bookcase or seating. You can also add an industrial theme to really liven things up; including a reclaimed metal hanging pendant light, cafeteria-type metal stools to use as both seating and as plant stands or to sit a table lamp on.

Lighten the heavy industrial look by using plenty of neutral colours such as cream, oatmeal, beiges and light grey. Do this with cushions, curtains, fabric upholstery, pictures and wall paint.

3) A Designer’s ‘Solitary Shed’

Contact UsSir Paul Smith is no ordinary clothes designer, so it figures that when he gets a rustic garden room built it's going to be something pretty special. Bespoke furniture designer Nathalie de Leval created a single room to sit on the grounds of his house which was built from warm-toned honey-coloured wood. In it sits a chair, radio, red kettle and a colourful oil painting. The point of it is to give him somewhere to switch off, the designer said. “In today's world where everyone is so busy, I think this is really important and very needed.”

4) A Pretty Woodland Cabin
