Rural Idyll

Linking inside with outside at a beautiful barn conversion in leafy Somerset

An extension of the garden room in many ways – as well as a link between inside and out – it was also to be an alfresco ‘room’ in itself to provide an additional dining space, particularly when family were visiting.

Our clients were looking for a contemporary outside space reflecting the style of a garden room adjoining their beautiful barn conversion home, while also being sympathetic to the property’s historic features and traditional rural surrounds.

Planting of soft greys and purples reflect fabrics and finishes, and a copper water fountain provides a relaxing focal point that can be enjoyed from both inside and out. Thoughtfully designed garden lighting creates a lovely ambience in the evenings, ensuring the space can be used well into the darker hours.
