The Conran Shop: Shed Chic Window Display

The beautiful sunshine in London over the past week or so has left me craving a garden of my own to curate and tender to under the warm summer sunshine. So you can imagine my delight when I happened upon this ‘shed chic’ window display in The Conran Shop here in London. How chic and striking is the black and lime green colour combination of the sheds themselves? I’d never have considered a black she before seeing these but I think they look great! The visual merchandising team have done an outstanding job of displaying their garden product in an inspiring manner. I especially like the little window shelf with the terracotta pots filled with succulents under bell jars. To me there’s something magical and playful about exploring the sheds within the windows. Creative window displays are so inspiring, don’t you think?!

    Great post! I've just painted my shed light blue and I'm really enjoying the new pop of colour in my garden. I'm pretty new to your blog after stumbling upon it in the nominees for the homies, but I really enjoy your writing. Also, for some reason I had assumed you were American and so, after reading this post about Conran in London I read the information about you in Meet Mr Bazaar and low and behold you're from the UK too! Lovely to make your aquaintance πŸ˜‰

    I LOVE phenomenal visual merchandising, Will! (Maybe *that's* what I should be doing? But, I digress… ) This is spot on for sure!

    Wowza! Brilliant on so many levels. Savvy stylists indeed.

    The vivid green on black is great. I did wonder who would need a feather duster in a shed but of course all sheds come with a resident spider so perfect. They have such a great merchandising display team at Conran. Love it.

    OMG-outstanding is not the word-completely amazing displays! We painted our posh shed/garden office black and have just finished the fences too-stunning and brilliant if you're a crap gardener like me as they look amazing even without plants. Thanks so much for sharing these Will-wonderful to see πŸ™‚

    I've been wanting a flower shed for so long but haven't spotted one that I've wanted yet, this one is amazing! Where can I find one??

    We've just bought a shed for our garden. I now what to paint the inside as well as the outside – how cool do these look. I wonder what colour that green is? In love with Apple Smiles by Paper & Paints Library at the minute

    I love visual merchandising! That is something you definitely do not get from “online” shopping. I agree that the little window with the terra-cotta plants are the cutest! I would be so stoked to see this display in person.

  • Reply Jessie May 31, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Such stylish color combo! Love the black and green shed, never thought of such color palette before but this is so inspiring! The coolest shed I have ever seen!

    Have a good day, Will!
