I’m back from my holiers and definitely still in holiday mode. On the last day of my hols in Norway my mother-in-law brought me to a place which is like an allotment but with tiny cabins. When I saw the place I got so excited I was like a child in a candy shop because it was so, so pretty. The place is like a huge site split up into smaller allotments where people grow flowers and vegetables and also on these allotment spaces are the cutest little cabins you could ever imagine. The cabins are about 15m2 and each one is so individual – different colours, shapes and decorated differently outside and inside. Some people have built a tiny little bedroom and/or kitchen in these cabins and you can sleep/cook/relax in them or some people just visit them daily and tend to their veg and flowers.
Some of spaces even have glasshouses with nothing growing inside but instead they have a table & chairs and pots & plants inside so its a brilliant idea if you have a glass house at home that you don’t use. Clear it out and put a table & chairs in there and so you can still get the joy of being outside but under cover even when its raining. See the image below ‘Sitting Inside Out’.
I was thrilled when I was admiring one of the gardens and Eva Lohne asked me in to her place to have a look around – from the Pretty in Pink images below. Also featured below is my mother-in-laws cabin which although its not in the Allotment Space but in her back garden I think its gorgeous enough to be featured here also (see the images from Mrs T’s Cabin below) and I have spent a lot of time relaxing in it.
What really struck me walking around this place was the individuality of each space. Enjoy the images and if your thinking of building an outdoor cabin in your back garden or want to do something different with your glasshouse I hope these images can provide some inspiration.
