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.
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?
