Glamorous vintage-inspired greenhouse

For a wedding present, Heather Cameron’s husband, Kevin, renovated a weathered potting shed on their property into a 10 foot by 12 foot greenhouse. He added 11 windows that he had gathered from a salvage yard to the greenhouse, adding panes to create a tempered-glass roof. Creating exactly what Heather had envisioned, the stunning greenhouse was brought to fruition. Then Heather got down to decorating her new retreat with vintage-floral pillows, white-painted furniture, and collections of mint green jadeite and milk glass vases. Everything she collected for her newly fashioned abode was gathered from Vintage Home, a nearby business that reinvents cast-off furniture and home accessories. “I never had time to use the shed for its original purpose as a place to pot plants,” recalls Heather. “I like it much more now as somewhere to escape to and curl up with a book, paint, or visit with friends.” Via

Lush, feminine florals and remade castoffs lend a homey feel to the interior of Heather Cameron’s small retreat.
