Along with all of my many ideas and dreams for our forever home, I often think about having my very office. At the moment I have a small work space in the corner of our living room, or I balance the laptop on the chair arm. I would love a space that is light and airy, stylish and full of inspiration, should be easy right?!
Unless you have a room in your home that is in just the right location for light and with nice big windows then it might not be possible to find it. So I thought about having a Garden office, a space full of everything I am looking for.
Finding a ready built garden office or something that would be built in the garden, with large windows, nice floor boards and a small heater for the winter months. It would be perfect, just as I think it would be easier finding something with all of the correct dimensions and then choosing your finish, the flooring and roofing. Then all I have to do is find the perfect spot and wait for it to arrive. The insulated garden offices from GBC group are everything I have been dreaming about. I can imagine it being an olive or sage green colour with some beautiful pots outside that I would plant with seasonal flowers.
My Garden Office style
I could have a lovely desk, it would be looking out across the garden. I think I would add my beloved bureaux instead of a desk. The space would have a small sofa or a large snuggle chair and a small table, perfect for just sitting with a book and a cuppa. Maybe I would add some lovely shelf’s for my books and my favourite and very well loved copy of pride an prejudice, I could lose hours in there reading.
Having lots of natural light and lovely floor boards would also be perfect for the hundreds photographs I take, the garden office could also double up as a small photography studio.
I would try to keep the space stylish using the lovely country side colours that I love so much. Adding plants in wicker baskets, blankets and cushions, some wall art and possibly a large mug. It makes me happy just thinking about it. I would also have to fit a small set of drawers in, so I can house all of my stationery, there is a lot of it!
Spending hours working in my very own garden would just be heaven, having that space to get creative, while looking out over the garden. Being away from the house, all of the washing and cleaning, will help to ensure I have a better work life balance. Plus it would look amazing in the garden.
Designing my dream garden office is not difficult in my head, its packed fill of ideas but making it a reality might not be so easy. We don’t have our forever home yet, but one day we will have it and I cannot wait!
