simple is beautiful

A Connecticut Estate

Monday, December 7, 2015

 

Several years ago I stumbled upon the greenhouse of Carolyne Roehm and immediately fell in love. When it was recently featured on One King's Lane I was thrilled to see more images!  Her Georgian home, built after a fire in the original home in 1999, is truly breathtaking.  My favorite parts of the estate include the breakfast room and greenhouse, but if you would like to see the rest of the tour, go here.


The floor to ceiling cabinets full of antique and vintage china along with a healthy dose of topiaries are perfection!  Let's pause for a moment to appreciate those navy monogram chairs!


This is the most beautiful greenhouse I've ever seen!  Can you imagine dinner parties in this space with a view of the stars under a canopy of trees?


I adore this little corner complete with preserved butterflies - perfect for overwintering plants.


If you enjoyed this post, you'll want to visit Carolyne's blog where she shares many more images from her home as well as design projects, floral arrangements, and entertaining.  Carolyne's book, At Home in the Garden, is on my wish list.
