This beautiful home office is also a guest space and craft room where photographer Kerrie Mitchell can meet clients

A bit about me

Hi, I’m Kerrie Mitchell, a wedding photographer. I live with my husband Russell and our Labrador Tagg in a four-bedroom house on the Suffolk border.

My problem office

I used to work in our spare bedroom, but had outgrown the space and was looking for options when we found the brilliant company Modern Garden Rooms and hit upon the idea of creating a flexible area in our garden.

How I made it work

We didn’t want to have to walk far in the winter months to access the room, so we decided to knock down a greenhouse near to the house, replacing it with a Scandinavian-style garden room. We worked with the company to design a space which I mainly use as my photography studio. It also provides us with guest accommodation and somewhere to create my wall hangings. The builders put up the shell, but we did all the interior work ourselves.

My favourite part

I love the teal sofa which brings a pop of colour, while creating a homely feel and somewhere to sit with my wedding clients. It can also pull out into a sofa bed if we have a full house!

You can find out more about Kerrie's home by purchasing our November 2018 issue, available as a digital download for only £0.99 here.
