Light, air and the best of views, a garden room
is a must-have home accessory
ZEST FOR LIFE
Not just for country houses, an orangery is an extension with a glass roof and floor to ceiling windows. As you might guess, they were originally conceived to shelter citrus plants from the British weather, but whether you choose to throw in a lemon tree or not, they make the most beautiful dining and living spaces.

THE INS AND OUTS
Outdoor dining is a special treat in the summer months, so it’s worth investing in a decent dining set that offers comfort and sturdy style when you need it. But then what? Pop a cover over it or hide it in the garage for the next nine months? Choose a set that works just as well indoors as out and you can pick your dining spot with ease.

ALL ROUND FUN
A conservatory might not be physically or financially practical, but who needs one when you can drop in a dome instead? As garden retreats go, this one is perfect for the cool of a summer’s evening, or throw in some blankets and enjoy all-round light on a winter’s day.
