Summer of Design at the Berkshire Botanical Garden


Garden sheds reinvented into stylish living spaces is a concept that fascinates me. Having made my own humble shed into a chic dining room was a really fun project. This summer, the Berkshire Botanical Garden is presenting the work of five designers who are going to reinvent the basic shed.

Myself, along with the talents of Annie Selke of Pine Cone Hill, Sarah Thorne with Peter Thorne for Thorne Furniture and Decoration, James Shearron and Richard Bories architects and designers, and set producer Chase Booth will all be a part of the summer long event at the garden. The show opens May 1st.

The design concepts are as diverse as the designers. There will be an Adirondack style treehouse, a Berkshire Summer Studio and my concept for a Garden Bloggers Retreat. It will be well worth a visit to see the results and find inspiration.

The Barn Raiser of Saugerties is sponsoring the exhibition. The sale of the sheds will benefit the garden.

I love learning from different heads using the same templates.

I will be posting tons of pics I am sure. Both of the process and the finished space. I am really looking forward to the project.
