There’s a project gaining traction, think space and do-ability: An office pod in the garden. It’s been mooted before – it almost happened last year, but the husband was between jobs so it wasn’t the right time. But the green light is now on to start thinking, planning and budgeting because I’ve worked out over the years, the more time you give to these three, the less it all costs because you work out whats important. And what’s not.
The pod will need to be heated and although I love the romance of a proper stove, I believe in London, with concerns over air pollution and consideration to our neighbours, a cunning side step to an electric copy, like we did in the cellar will be the way to go: It will provide the visual representation, the heat, but none of the negatives.
Besides there’s always the joy of what goes round the stove..a small area to tile means flex in choice!
At present is a toss up between the modern approach of concrete tiles with large, dramatic patterns.
Or – and I was reminded of this option after seeing this picture of Alexandra Tolstoy’s cottage and splashback – a blue and white delft option.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could create your own? Pictures of coded memories??
