Our favourite garden room decorating ideas
You may have a garden room, orangery or a glass conservatory you want to revitalise for the warmer months to come. In this blog, we will be looking at nine outdoor room decorating ideas & furniture that will truly bring your space to life. A place to escape, relax and regather during these unusual times.
Garden Room Decorating Ideas - Furniture
Fashion or function? Garden rooms come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. The underlying use of your space will be determined by the furniture you use to furnish your garden room. Whether you are looking for more comfortable cosy pieces or those with more functionality.
Our Black Bamboo Chair With Velvet Seat Pad will offer a sumptuous place to sit, whilst you read your favourite novel. Pair this with our Dream Black Tray Table to home your favourite candle and morning caffeine fix.
What colour theme should I decorate my Garden Room?
Garden rooms are often light and airy spaces. To complement this, pale and pastel colours work well to mute and soften the walls to blend into the natural outdoor surroundings. Our own exclusive Bohemia - Rockett St George Chalky Emulsion Paint would be the perfect shade.
For a warmer more striking look, use darker colours to create a sense of intimacy and drama. Portobello from our exclusive Rockett St George Chalky Emulsion Paint collection will add a dramatic edge to your indoor/outdoor space.
Wallpaper – Prints or Patterns?
Adding wallpaper to your garden room as a feature wall will add texture and interest to your space. Choose a natural floral print design to compliment your foliage friends with Cole & Son’s Bontanical Botanica wallpaper.
Or go all out with pattern! We think Cole and Son’s Piccadily Wallpaper in Soft Blue, from their The Albemarle Collection, will add style to any wall space. The pastel colours with bounce the summer sunlight into all corners of your garden room.
Decorating Your Garden Room with Plants
Our outdoor spaces are home to our most cherished plants and foliage favourites. Let plants take centre stage in your garden room. Artificial plants give you the best of both worlds with blush blooms all year round and minimal maintenance. From our Faux Perfect Palm to our Bunch Of Lagarus Ovatus – Natural we have you covered!
Working from home?
Moving your working life home has been an unexpected reality for a large number of us. Finding just the right location is key to your working day. Moving your desk into your garden room may prove a quiet sanctuary and improve your productivity and motivation!
Like most of us, we have had to improvise, but no more! We have the answers to your desk needs! Our new in Black Metal Bureau Desk With 3-Drawers will complement a darker interior. Alternatively, our lighter Classic Gold Trimmed Desk will complement a more contemporary garden room perfectly.
The alfresco season is coming!
As the mercury starts to rise, dining alfresco is definitely on the agenda. But with the classic British weather, it's always a good idea to have an indoor backup plan! A rustic dining table is a great garden room decorating idea for rooms featuring exposed brick. The perfect piece will transform any outdoor dining plans! Remember notable is fully set without those perfect crockery pieces, and of course a few dinner candles for good measure! Going grand? How about our Industrial Cast Iron Dining Table with Wooden Top to make that real statement. Add our Black Rimmed Glass Dinner Plates and Beautiful Dinner Candle - Sage Green for a formal but elegant homage to your garden room.
As those summer nights draw in, who says that game over? Adding power and lighting to your garden room will prolong the time you can enjoy outside. From floor lamps such as our Fern Leaf Palm Tree Style Floor Lamp to wall lights such as our decadent Large Directional Wall Light with Sphere Wicker Shade, having additional lighting to enjoy the later evenings in your indoor/outdoor setting will really entice any book worm!
Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Whatever size your garden room is, adding a mirror will make your space feel so much larger and brighter. Who doesn’t want a free extension? Our Crittall-Style Arch Indoor/Outdoor Mirror has the perfect indoor/outdoor feel that will complement any garden room decor. Or how about going bold with gold and our Large Round Mirror With Gold Surround the perfect statement piece for your garden room.
Throw some personality at the walls! Adding a favourite art piece will finish your space perfectly and your garden room will be unique for you to enjoy! Keeping with the floral outdoor theme, our Unframed Snow White Wild Rose Art Print Poster would be a perfect addition. Something more abstract? Why not add our Unframed Flower Skull Fine Art Print to you garden room for that really stand out piece!
