Summerhouse Style

We’ve recently built a summerhouse in the garden and thought it was a great opportunity to get creative with the interior. We wanted it to be a comfortable space for relaxing, but also practical for eating and entertaining. We kept the outside looking contemporary with bifold doors – which are great as it turns the summerhouse into an extension of the decking – and painted in shades of blue. Inside, we wanted a theme that felt warm and tropical, comfortable while keeping an outdoors feel.

I’ve linked everything below where I can but we did do some bargain hunting so not everything is available.

We definitely weren’t afraid to get creative and hunted out some fab bargains to fill the space for not too much money. There’s still some finishing touches to add – I would love some more potted plants and cacti, but hopefully it’ll be a space we enjoy and use for plenty of time to come.
