Conservatory Addition

check out this 1920's Tudor style house that wished to add and change the “heaviness and darkness” of the house and their solution was this kitchen observatory - and if you ask me - IT WORKS! .. take a look:

The welcoming entrance was achieved by adding a wrought-iron front rail-and-pier screen, a lowered front entry court with a limestone fountain and a shelter at the front door made from heavy-timbered oak and reclaimed roofing slates.



above are the outter views of the backyard where the conservatory was added






above is the inside ..
this normally isn't 'my cup of tea' but i'm in lloovvveee with this design .. 
top to bottom - i wanna move in!!!

DO YOU HAVE A CONSERVATORY?
WHAT DO YOU USE IT FOR OR WOULD USE IT FOR?

  3. Pretty successful change! Our new home is 100 years old but it's been completely renovated and modernised inside, too, but still has the high ceilings and all that stuff :-)

  4. Wow! Wonder if they have solar shades? Otherwise I would think this place would heat up like a green house.

    Adore that hood!

  21. Wow, I love this idea, totally works for me.

    The only Conservatory I've seen was in a friend's flat in London. She had two, one she used for a dinning room, and a smaller one she used as a breakfast nook off of her kitchen.

    Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    Cheers!

  22. It was Scarlet in the conservatory with the rope. Besides the game clue i have never seen or been in a real conservatory but I image I would have plants and an area for reading.
