Maybe it’s because beautiful meals are the things that punctuate our day, that quiet space with our families to hit the “restart” button, but dining is what we think we’d enjoy very most in our conservatory.
Town and Country
Well, and having our morning coffee with those happy, just-awake voices and newspaper scattered all around.
This looks like the perfect place to curl up with a good book!
Do you have a conservatory? (We’ll try not to be too jealous!) How would you spend time in your conservatory? We hope your week is going well!

Clearly, we have light on the brain this week — and lots of it. Conservatories are magnificent, but, even if your walls aren’t entirely comprised of glass, windows can make a room nearly as spectacular. No matter what the view, simply looking out to another world can be so inspirational. Doesn’t this remind you of a bright, gorgeous church?
This room, (photo from Luxist) is beyond fabulous in its own right. Add the window and the view, and it’s almost too beautiful to look directly into. What a great way to enjoy the winter weather without having to leave the comfort of your fireplace.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and, with a breakfast room like this one, we can’t imagine wanting to spend time anywhere else! The photo is from Turquoise, Tulips and Bliss.
This view, from Beach Vintage, is reason enough to have a room made entirely of windows.

A Teepee with windows! So cool! This photo is from My Ideal Home.
This is exactly where I want to be curled up on this rainy day! (Another photo from My Ideal Home!)
What a beautiful place to wake up with the sun… This photo is from Desire to Inspire.
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.

The contrast of the airiness of the light flowing in with the dark wood and floor is such a fabulous idea from Spitzmiller and Norris Architects. That is the ideal spot for watching thunderstorms!
