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?

Everything Fab

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.

Turquoise, Tulips and Bliss

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.


Beach Vintage

This view, from Beach Vintage, is reason enough to have a room made entirely of windows.

This is exactly where I want to be curled up on this rainy day! (Another photo from My Ideal Home!)
