Yummy Potting Sheds and other Ideas

How absolutely delightful. During my quest for shed resources I have come across this brilliant book. Yes, maybe a little more Chic than Shed, but I am loving this book. How utterly bohemian would it be to have this caravan in your back garden!

A relaxing cup of tea and a biscuit here surrounded by all the flowers you love?

Or to dine alfresco with all this Christina Strutt loveliness? How beautiful is that?

I want to cosy up on this daybed with a book and revel in the squishiness of it. And how gorgeous is that heart shaped cushion with that stunning print?

A guest bedroom shed.

I must admit I am truly loving this but where would my lawn mower and bug killer go? It just doesn't co-ordinate somehow with the chintz.

Love the rustic charm of this.

I just like this. No special reason other than a feeling of contentment.

I love the white beadboard and the chandelier.

Okay, maybe technically they are not true potting sheds but the photography and rooms are amazing. I love this book and have been through it at least 5 times. You simply must beg, borrow or buy this as I am sure you will be as captivated by the beauty as I am.

Nice post, will look out for the book. I have just emptied one of my sheds (more or less LOL), and am just about to do it up for using properly instead of just piling "stuff" into it!

I just love all of it - big sigh of contentment - I don't have a shed - but I have a garage, see my post today - it's not quite as pretty.

Oh how much I love gypsy caravans!

Such lovely pictures.... day beds are another love and I yearn for my own home and the day I can create my day bed area.

i love all of this. i am currently on the hunt for a shabby floral curtain to double as a tablecloth for my picnic table. i don't want to spend much so i keep checking clearance end caps. i really love this look -- all floral and rough at once. sigh.

What fab pics... I've always wanted a gypsy caravan in the garden, but just can't fit it... would have to hire a crane, LOL.

I would love to have a Vardo in my backyard! What is it about those things that intrigues me so beyond the gilding and the vivid colors? Love'em.
