It’s hard to believe, but this charming garden cottage used to be referred to as “the haunted shed” by the family who owns it.
It has since been transformed into a lovely work studio for Rebecca, the landscape designer behind Harmony in the Garden. Head over to Lookiloos to take the tour of both this adorable cottage and the surrounding gardens!
Wow what a lovely place to work, dream….nap! I love it.

Very pretty! I linked to lookiloos and took the whole tour… her garden is completely my style. I see you have a link to Cathe Holden’s workshop too. I love her blog! I’m off now to see her creative space…

Love it. Love the gardens. Looks like the front of the house I live in. My landlord has it landscaped as a wild, english garden.
This is just gorgeous – I went over to Lookiloos and was so pleased to see a couch/sofa in there for necessary napping!
As a garden shed, it’s stunning; in fact, if my living room looked this good, I’d be rather proud of myself!

I just checked her out over at Lookiloos and her work is incredible! We all need a haunted potting shed/work studio that’s for sure! Great post. 🙂

Indeed it has to be a lovely ,gorgeous place to work!
We have started an oak outbuilding in our garden(shown on my blog) where we can sit listening to the birds singing, were we can barbecue with friends, where we can do some study work,…
It’s realy nice to work in peace there!

My grandmother had a shed very similar to what this before would have been. Too bad she’s not in that house anymore because this would be a perfect solution. So beautiful!

Isn’t that wonderful and beautiful and serene? I don’t know if I’d get any work accomplished there. I think I’d spend a lot of time daydreaming. : )

What a lovely new life that’s been given to that haunted little shed, showing its true colors beneath a scraggly surface.
Great job, Rebecca!

I aspire to one day work from home and have an office exactly like this one.
