Our garden rooms are intended to offer a clear and unspoilt view of your outdoor space, allowing you to enjoy your surroundings all year round from the comfort of your home. Even if you're an experienced gardener who has managed to design an attractive and inviting space, there is always room for a few extra accessories to give it some added charm.
Here are some beautiful and unusual decorative outdoor items that we found online, to lend you some inspiration for improving your garden in the new year.
Temerity Jones Swan Planters
This set of three planters make a delightfully kitsch addition to your garden, reminding you of peaceful lakeside walks and picnics. The fact that they come in a trio also offers you a range of arrangement options, whether you wish to display them together or separately.
Teapot Birds Nest
One of the best parts about observing your garden is seeing the variety of wildlife which comes and goes with the seasons. This means that it's always a good idea to introduce feeding and nesting solutions to your space, in order to encourage more bird and insect activity in your garden. This delightful teapot nest is an unusual take on the traditional wooden nesting box, offering a great solution for those looking to create the ideal 'English country garden'.
Provence Plant Stand
This stunning, grey plant stand is perfect for those who are looking to inject a rustic French garden vibe into their space. The best part is that it can be used both outdoors and indoors, so it would look just as good inside your garden room as a pretty yet practical home for all your house plants.
Alert Hare Ornament
This metal-look hare is a clever and eye-catching way to introduce more natural elements to your garden, even if you're sadly not fortunate enough to receive many real garden visitors. Thanks to the weather and frost resistant properties of the material, your ornament is also sure to retain it's visual impact year after year.
Ground Rainbow Bubbles
These whimsical garden accessories will make you feel as if you've stepped into the fairytale garden of your childhood dreams! Producing an enchanting 'bubble' effect, these colourful orbs are perfect for adding a hint of wonder to pathways and water features.

Sadly, garden rooms sometimes gain a bad reputation in the home design world, due to the fact that when poorly executed, they can do more to distract from your property than to enhance it. At SunSpaces, we go to great lengths to ensure this is never the case with any of our designs, ensuring that all of our contemporary garden rooms are tailored to perfectly compliment both your indoor and outdoor space.
When planning your garden room, we will do our very best to ensure that all elements are taken into consideration, in order to incorporate this new detail seamlessly with the rest of your home. We will take all of your requirements into consideration, putting our vision and your ideas together to create a space that is both attractive and comfortable, ensuring that the aesthetic of your home is enhanced and improved.
Unlike other garden rooms, our SunSpace designs are intended to extend the existing beauty of your home. We don't see the process as 'adding on an extra', in our opinion, there should be as little disconnect between the new and existing elements of your home as possible. While you may want the space to have a unique feel, or to offer a different experience from the rest of your home, you should be able to create this without causing the area to seem mismatched or forced.
December has arrived, which means that it's time to deck the halls, hang the ornaments, and get your home ready for Christmas!
To that end, we've chosen a few of our favourite Christmas decorations from around the internet. These items will look great practically anywhere in your property, although we think they'll look particularly
perfect in your garden room
if you've got one!
We'll kick off with this very cute accessory from Cox & Cox - those sweet little snowballs would look great draped against the window of a garden room. We may not get a white Christmas this year, but frankly, we'd rather gaze at this curtain than struggle through a blanket of cold, slippery slush anyway.
Standing Bear Ornament
We encountered a lot of reindeer ornaments as we browsed the internet in preparation for this blog post, but if reindeer seem too clichéd for your tastes. there are alternatives. We're big fans of this lovely, bristly bear, for example.
Antique Smoke Silver Baubles
Baubles are nothing new, of course, but their omnipresence at this time of year doesn't mean that they can't still look stunning. We love the vintage look (as we may have mentioned before
), and so these sumptuously smoky-looking ornaments are right up our street.
Christmas Pudding Doorstop
Why don't real Christmas puddings ever look as appetising as the plump, jolly, perfectly spherical puds like this one? Sadly, you can't eat this pudding, although it does make for a very festive-looking doorstop.
Pine Cone Stocking Holder
Finally, we come to the ever-reliable Notonthehighstreet - why hang your Christmas stocking any-old-where when you could hang it off this gorgeous cast-iron pine cone ornament? This item's outdoorsy appeal would marry perfectly with a garden room setting.
