Morningside bungalow

This 1919 bungalow was lovingly taken care of but just needed a few things to make it complete. The owner, an avid gardener wanted someplace to bring in plants during the winter months. This small addition accomplishes many things in one small footprint. This potting room, just off the dining room, doubles as a mudroom. Design by Meriwether Felt, Photos by Susan Gilmore

Thank you for that! This is a beautiful addition and such an original idea! So sympathetic to the rest of the house. Kudos to you and the homeowner!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The zinc countertop is durable and looks as though it is original to the house, thanks to its wonderful patina. Felt opted for slatted drawer bottoms for the gardening tool drawers because they’re easier to clean off than solid, and because she and the homeowner didn’t want the drawers to look like regular cabinetry; they wanted the room to be unique. More about zinc countertopsThe basket-weave marble mosaic floor is often wet between the plant watering, the dog washing and the kids’ coming in from the pool. Felt added an intricate bronze drain with a Greek key patternaround the edge of the room. “This really is a Swiss army knife of a room,” she says. “It has many uses.” More Rooms of the Day
