I don’t have the space at home for a Summer House but that doesn’t stop me from swooning over those that do. There’s something very special about these outdoor havens, whether its a spot to have a glass of wine, a cup of tea, to read, write, play or just a place where you can look out onto your garden and relax, they’re an essential part of many peoples outdoor spaces and you can certainly see why. Through my Instagram I have come across some amazing and Inspiring accounts, four of which have kindly allowed me to share with you their Summer Houses.
