The clock’s have gone back, the days are getting shorter and whilst the weather to date has been mild, thoughts are turning to spending more time within the sanctity of homes.
With less daylight and less incentive to be outdoors, it’s to think about the indoors and creating warm and comfortable living spaces.
Today’s orangeries and garden rooms are designed to be used and appreciated all year round – they have become the favourite room at home and usually the heart of the household.
With comfort and ambience very much in mind, here are some inspirational examples of orangery interiors which are all set to be enjoyed, whatever the autumn/winter season throws at us.
Interiors That Make an Impression
Interiors that cut a dash are the perfect tonic when daylight is at a premium.
Bold, accent colours inject life and vitality into a living space, creating an inviting look and feel, to be experienced at any time before especially so during the colder months of the year.
Orangery with a Log Burner
If, like many, you have resisted turning the central heating on so far, then calling on the natural warmth provided by a log burning stove might have been your fall back option.
Adding a log burner into an orangery is a great supplementary heat source and a design feature for which David Salisbury has had widespread experience.
Living Room Orangery
For a more traditional design feature, a fireplace creates an instant focal point.
In this instance below, a living room orangery was designed, to replace an old and unusable conservatory, creating a fully functional living space for year round use.
This bespoke orangery is another good example of how these types of extension become a natural part of the home, as opposed to some older style conservatories which would often look like something of an add-on.
Oak Framed Orangery
A log burner can work equally as well within the context of an oak framed orangery.
In one of our favourite oak orangery designs from a few years ago, this Hampshire cottage below was enhanced with an oak framed extension.
The natural tones of the oak framing are complemented by the classical design of the solid wood Ercol furniture. A statement chair adds a splash of colour to the interior, providing the perfect spot to take in views of the garden, at any time of year.
That’s just a few examples of orangeries and garden rooms that are ready to be enjoyed whatever this autumn/winter has in store for us.
