Architectural Digest

Whatever you prefer to call them, garden rooms, conservatories, atriums or sunrooms, these may be our favorite room in the house.  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.

APD Architects 

The conservatory is the perfect additional room in any home.  It is where we could see ourselves spending much of our day enjoying a favorite book or magazine.  

Tigerman McCurry Architects

 To combine dining and relaxing is perfection.  We can’t get over the yellow paint trimming the windows.  It is so bright and cheery and is the perfect backdrop for the great outdoors beyond.  

Lynn Morgan Design 

With all of the glass we can almost feel the warmth of the sun in each of these rooms – how wonderful any season, but especially on those cold winter days. Painted blue furniture and wood beams add so much charm to this space.

Andrew Maier Design

This living room would be our game room, office and family gathering space.  We love the rooms in our houses that get the most sunlight.   We know where that would be in this one!

Liz Caan 

This beautiful gray porch with a cozy fireplace, is where we would have our coffee every morning.

APD Architects 

Soothing gray paint, floor to ceiling windows, brick floors and the perfect lantern.  We love every single thing about this room.


Have you ever seen such a chic way to get to your garden.  We love the lattice and only wish that we could grow plants this healthy and green!

The Cloister – Sea Island, GA – glass

 The Cloister in Sea Island, Georgia is a favorite and the conservatory there is amazing.  Beautiful art and stately palm trees grace this room.

This is what we call the perfect porch.  Wicker furniture, arched windows and and french doors…my newspaper is calling me!  We hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend and relaxing in rooms just this gorgeous.
