{Gather} Back to School with Pretty Desk Supplies

With everyone heading back to school, I’ve been thinking about something that is missing in my life: back to school shopping! One of my favorite things to shop for when I was in school was always school supplies. I got a bit too much joy out of going through the aisles picking out just the right combination of folders, pens, calendars, and notebooks. When I was in elementary school, I also usually took it upon myself to design and print out my own personal labels to identify all my supplies…ha. It was a big deal.

These days, I still get excited about office supplies. I don’t have a desk of my own in our townhouse, but I’m thinking I’ll set up a desk of my own when my mom moves to Seattle :) That will be the perfect excuse to stock up on some pretty desk accessories, don’t you think?

In our English Tudor in Portland, there was an addition to a corner of our kitchen that felt kind of like a conservatory or a garden room. I loved all the amazing light from the windows!

I’ll show you a couple of photos of the conservatory in the kitchen (aka “The Castle” in Love the Home You Have) in the below two photos. Unfortunately, these are poor quality screen shots of a video from when my old house was for sale in 2007, but at least you can get the idea!

And this one, below, from my conservatory-like kitchen (see more of my old house here):

A conservatory is a room with a glass roof and walls, attached to a house and used as a greenhouse or a sun parlor. Even if you don’t have a real fancy conservatory, a room with lots of big windows and skylights would be an inspiring addition, wouldn’t it? A remodel like that would certainly transform a house.

Even before our Tudor, I dreamed of having a charming English conservatory. In our first little house I actually called a company about building a small one for us, but we ended up moving instead. Maybe someday my dream will be realized!

I can’t even. That dining room.

OK. Now MY HEART JUST LEAPED OUT OF MY CHEST! THIS is a dream, a conservatory looking out over a garden with beautiful white fencing.

Or this one, on the backside of a glorious farmhouse. I’ll take it.

Do you have a conservatory or garden room in your home, or perhaps a pretty greenhouse to putter around in and enjoy?
