Chic garden sheds!

Interiors

If you find out that you don’t have the space for a granny studio, garden studio, outdoor cottage then you can look into a garden shed. The name garden shed conjures up to mind a rough looking shed in aluminium lacking completely in character, well things have changed and the garden shed can be a delightful space in which to study, play, plant or meditate. 

If you watched the latest tribute to the Queen for the Jubilee then you might have been as enchanted as Chicfinds to see her childhood cubby house. Hardly a cubby house but the same idea anyway even if the Queen’s is slightly bigger than the usual. What a wonderful thing to have a little house away from home to explore, create and ponder.

Why shouldn’t we have a cubby house/garden shed to play in for all ages? 

Chic finds loves the garden shed!

What’s Elena from Milan wearing for ChicFinds?

fashion, Photography

Eléna Beatriz studied product design in Milan and now works for a magazine as a junior project manager. She loves to collect every sort of beautiful useless object, as well as books with catchy covers, stones, pieces of wood, picture frames, glass vases and ceramics in general.
She would love to go and live by the sea, and have time to look after her few surviving plants.

She inspires and reminds me of the sexy combination that one of my favorite photographers; Peter Beard manages to capture, La femmina nella natura!

“His love affair with natural history and wildlife, which informs most of his work, began when he was a teenager. He had read the books of Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) and after spending time in Kenya and befriending the author, bought a piece of land near hers. It was the early 1960s and the big game hunters led safaris, with all the colonial elements Beard had read about in Out of Africa characterizing the open life and landscape, but the times were changing. Beard witnessed the dawn of Kenya’s population explosion, which challenged finite resources and stressed animal populations – including the starving elephants of Tsavo, dying by the tens of thousands in a wasteland of eaten trees. So he documented what he saw – with diaries, photographs, and collages.” http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/art/all/45702/facts.peter_beard_2_vols.htm
