Building Your Backyard Sanctuary is Like Sipping Tea with Tips

Building Your Backyard Sanctuary is Like Sipping Tea with Tips

Home design expert and HGTV’s “Flipping Virgins” host Egypt Sherrod this week partnered with Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea to introduce the TEA Shed – the ultimate backyard sanctuary for kicking back, relaxing and enjoying the taste of Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea. In designing the TEA Shed, Sherrod drew inspiration from nature, using her signature craftsmanship and authentic materials as a nod to Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea’s real tea leaves and ingredients.

Egypt Sherrod’s Tips to create your own Backyard Summer Sanctuary (TEA Shed) 

Identify what your space will be used for –Regardless of what you are creating – whether it be an art studio, workshop, meditation, hobby room or garden retreat – having an idea of how you’ll use your space will help tremendously when creating a place to feel at home and decompress. That’s why I’ve partnered with Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea to create my custom TEA Shed. In creating my TEA Shed, I knew I wanted it to be a place that would be my own personal sanctuary to meditate, read and sip a refreshing Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea – brewed with real tea leaves for that comforting taste that takes me back to days drinking homemade tea growing up. 

Have a design theme – I love tea so Gold Peak Real Brewed Tea’s high-quality ingredients and real tea leaves were my inspiration. I introduced real elements inspired by nature into my shed, to create a comforting feeling and consistent design motif throughout.

Comfort and creativity are key – A TEA Shed is a great opportunity to be expressive, think outside of the box and have fun! It’s a place just for you, so experiment with bold colors and accent décor until it feels like your personality. Whether you are recreating the comforts of home or trying out an entirely new arrangement for your getaway, let your TEA Shed be your sanctuary.

Create an exciting entryway – Just because it might be called a shed, doesn’t mean it has to look like your typical shed! When creating your home away from home, show some personality up front. French doors (or in my case a grand staircase entrance), hanging plants and quaint signs are all great options when adding some pop to your creation.

A little goes a long way – think small – With limited space, smaller-scale furniture will make the space feel larger. Instead of a sofa, perhaps go with a daybed. Instead of a table, perhaps a floating ledge. There are numerous options out there to turn a small space into a cozy getaway. 

Durability is a must – When choosing flooring and wall coverings, look for products that are weatherproof, water resistant and humidity friendly.  

Keep climate in mind– Make sure to keep climate in mind when picking out interior décor – especially humidity. While picking out your furniture and pillows, make sure to look for items that are made with durable and strong materials to best the weather. I recommend incorporating outdoor furniture because it’s durable and can withstand any climate.  Also, be sure to have adequate windows or vents for air flow – this will keep you cool and comfortable.
