French-Inspired Conservatory

Southern Living recently featured this gorgeous French-design backyard conservatory created with salvaged windows – we couldn’t resist the temptation to post it here.  The owner, Jeri Farmer, wanted a glass garden house and was inspired by the glass Pyramid at the Louvre museum in Paris.

We love everything about this – the French country feel, the light, the colors in the decor, the beautiful French linens. . .

And the tin roof, which will make a summer rainstorm even more enjoyable.  The article in Southern Living says that Jeri’s son David collected old windows for several years before he and her husband spent a weekend connecting them and creating the walls for her conservatory.

And of course the garden is French-inspired as well, featuring an armillary sphere, boxwoods and pine straw.

Great job recycling found materials, Jeri!  And thanks to Southern Living for the inspiration.
