UK textile designer Neisha Crosland has an enviable commute to work; every day she walks through a garden room that connects her house to a three-story design studio. When she transformed the previously exterior space into an interior room, Crosland respected its history and brought the garden inside. Here’s how you can recreate the look:
Above: Crosland’s garden room connects her house to her studio and also leads to her garden. To see more of her garden, see “Paris in London: Neisha Crosland’s Garden Oasis.”
Above: The walls of Crosland’s Garden Room are hand painted by decorative painter and interior designer Rosie Mennem. A similar look can be achieved using Crosland’s wallpaper designs, such as Jacob’s Tree (L) in Egg Blue or Birdtree (R) in White Silver. Photography by Jan Baldwin.
Above: A pair of white painted, lime wood French panels from 1840, probably originally put above a fireplace, add a three dimensional floral motif to the room.
Above: A painted white rattan chair with an antique white painted metal plant stand. They both work equally well indoors and outdoors.
Above: Crosland uses green, white and yellow in her curtains and cushions. A Green and White Zebra Cushion (L) is $115 from Jonathan Adler; a Yellow Seat Cushion (R) is $76.99 from Outdoor Pillows Only.
Above: A cluster of alabaster pots (L) lends an ancient classic feel. A vestige of what was once an exterior space; a vine from the garden grows out into the street (L).
Above: Crosland uses Flagstone Pavers on the floor of her garden room and paints the ceiling with a color similar to Farrow and Ball’s Terre d’Egypte.
