I Love This: Tiny Tanglewood Conservatory

Full-blown conservatories are exclusive—so much so that I never dream of having one. But this littler version from Tanglewood Conservatories is actually accessible.

Inside this 175-square-foot greenhouse there’s enough space for several small trees, rows of colorful begonias, a potting sink and a bistro table with chairs for two. Simple but well thought out details set the tone.

The unusual contour of the roof was designed to mimic the lines of the main house. The cupola is glass but the lower roof is clad with lead-coated copper on the outside and trimmed with mahogany bead board on the inside.

Go to and fall in love with the full-scale models, too.
