Injecting glamour into the garden office

An excellent little piece in The Independent by Annie Deakin, acting editor of mydeco, talks about injecting glamour into your home office. She points out that a decade ago, home offices were humdrum affairs but that now "dressing an office" is a key part of any home redecoration. She makes various glam suggestions and quotes Emilia D’Erlanger, interior designer, as saying:
"Garden office rooms are all the rage. The smartest of addresses now all want a media room and a garden office as a sanctuary away from distractions...nowadays, you’re just as liable to find accountants as creative-types at the bottom of the garden - and the "shed" will be decked out in elegant wallpaper."
Well worth a browse (pictured is Benton Weinstock's glamorous home office, as seen in House Beautiful, via style court).

    Emilia D’Erlanger and Annie Deakin are henceforth barred from visiting the workshopshed!

  2. Go on Andy, you know you want some pretty frilly curtains really.

    I have no windows except for the transparent roof. I believe the previous owner might have had some curtains up on there.

    On a related note, does anyone know where I can get a wipeclean wallpaper that could be used like a whiteboard?
