Garden Room Style
With elements from both indoors and out, a garden room serves as a link between house and garden. No longer limited to the Victorian-style sun room, these glassed-in spaces can be kitchens or dining rooms, studios, small studies or garden retreats, even entire homes-in short, virtually any area that receives plenty of natural light.
Starting with background information on the evolution of glass rooms and the basic elements of the style, the book examines each variation on the successful garden room. Chapters cover the effect of the garden outside, color, entertaining, wicker, and other furniture, pools and fountains, antiques and statuary. The more technical considerations of wall and floor finishes, heating and lighting, rugs and blinds-and of course, planting under glass-are all discussed in detail for a well-considered room.
Filled with inspiring color photographs of relaxed interiors, Garden Room Style is a sumptuous guide and idea book for everyone who has a sunny, light-filled haven-and is a vivid wish book for readers planning for the future.
