It’s true that the best things in life are free. The sunshine, the rain… Just being outside can totally change my attitude and frame of mind. That being said, who needs to go outside when you can experience the great outdoors from the comfort of your own handcrafted conservatory? I keep a notebook full of decorating ideas and this first photo from Castles, Crowns and Cottages is displayed in it. Last night, my husband said, “Why don’t we add something like that off our sunroom?” What a lovely idea. Perhaps we should start playing the lottery after all… The good news is, I’m not picky. I’d take any single one of the conservatories on this page. We hope these images add a little sunshine to your day!
We love light. Lots and lots of light in every room. Imagine how much we could save on energy costs if our ceilings and walls were made entirely of windows! (Love, love the fur pillows too!)
This conservatory, designed by architect Mark Hutker reminds me of a greenhouse. Maybe if I had that room, I keep the orchids from two posts ago alive!
Don’t you think if you lived somewhere like this gorgeous country garden, featured in My Ideal Home, your only responsibilities would be taking that precious watering can and tending to your plants?
What a perfect place to wake up every morning and have a little tea and breakfast.
