My conservatory has been restored back to a relaxing green colour called Vert De Terre by Farrow and Ball, if you have never used their paints you must, they go on so smoothly, have extremely good coverage and reflect the light beautifully. A word of warning though, always buy a tester pot and look at your sample paint patch at all different times of day, it can change dramaticaly. Cool green a change from the previous dark blue.
A few gardening inspired bits and pieces all displayed in a wooden compartmented trug.
I thought about bringing my olive tree into the conservatory but there is not really enough room, so the cushion is the next best thing.
A bit of typography that I am quite partial to these days seems to crop up in most of my rooms.
My lovely Boston Public library bag holds some quilts and blankets for lazing snuggled up in the conservatory reading a book. The library bags were actually used in Boston for transporting books to different areas.
This is the inscription on the inside of the library bag, it is also on the front of the Public library in Boston.
In the summer I like to have a few geraniums dotted around to give it a greenhouse feeling.
Tiny little vases hold single sprigs of mint and herbs stood together with tea lights in pretty glass holders. My house is dotted around with inspirational sayings, I've always done this since my children were small, I hope in a small way it helped them get them were they are today.
In the evening the conservatory is lit with candles and white fairy lights, it takes on a magical feel, along with the stars on a clear night which can be seen through the clear glass roof.
So there it is my spring/summer looking conservatory, I have ordered one more thing to finish it off, when it arrives I will show you it. I would love some old winged arm chairs to cover in old grain sacks instead of the chairs we have now, but that will be a future project and is not near the top of my list just yet. What do you think, like the green, don't like the green, prefer the previous dark blue?
