The phrase “small is beautiful” was first published in the economist E. F. Schumacher’s 1973 book of the same title. Whilst it was referring to technologies and economic theory, it can just as easily be applied to the world of design and, in David Salisbury’s case, building extensions such as an orangery or garden room.

Transforming Homes Around the Country

orangery interiors modern living

A visit to our trade partner Style Group in Jersey earlier this week, got us thinking about the length and breadth of the country we design and install our award-winning orangeries and garden rooms.

From conservatories in Chester to orangeries in Oxford, from garden rooms in Gerrards Cross to kitchen extensions in Kensington, it is safe to say you are unlikely to ever be far away from a David Salisbury timber extension wherever you are in the country.

Organised by G&GP Magazine and celebrating and promoting excellence in conservatory design and build, this was the first year these awards had been run and the gala ceremony certainly did not disappoint.

Putting the clocks back this weekend

The couple of sunny days during this week were probably one last reminder of the nicer weather we enjoyed earlier this year: perfect to throw open the doors of your orangery or conservatory one last time before Winter. It was also good news for those us spending time with our children during what was half term week in many parts of the country.
