What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: A New Conservatory Brightens a Converted Carriage House
Houzz at a GlanceLocation: Dorchester neighborhood of BostonWho lives here: Melissa Miranda, an interior designer; her husband, Ulises Serret, a builder; their son, Alex, age 10; and their 3 catsSize: 2,400 square feet (222.9 square meters); 2 bedrooms, 1½ bathroomsThe conservatory occupies space that once was a deck. Radiant heat beneath Barcelona-inspired floor tiles keeps the family and their plants happy and comfortable year-round. “A house is not a home without plants,” Miranda says. “I’m verging on an obsession with them. I talk to them. It’s a thrill seeing them grow and flower.”Reproduction tulip chairs surround a rosewood table. Miranda had wheels installed on the table so she can easily move it out of the way when she feels like dancing. When she feels like reading, she stretches out on the settee that her mom bought for her at an estate sale on Cape Cod. She had the Moravian star light with milk glass custom made through a Mexican company. On warmer days, the family can open the skylights with a special stick.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to 7 Favorite Indoor Plants for West-Facing Windows
Light needs. West-facing windows get direct sun at the end of the afternoon when it is brightest — a plus for flowering plants, especially — but also when it can be the hottest. If plants are getting too much sun or heat, especially if they also receive light from other windows, they can develop scorched leaves and show signs of spindly growth. If that’s the case, move the plant out of the direct sun or provide filtered light during the hottest part of the day. Plants may also need to be moved away from the hotter spots during the summer and returned in winter when the sunlight is weaker.If the plant is not growing and thriving, it may not be receiving enough light, especially if the light coming in is filtered by buildings and trees. If so, move the plant closer to the window to increase the light it receives.
Jess McBride added this to Indoor Plants Add Style and Cheer in Winter
5. Where you dine. Plants have long been a staple of bohemian-style decorating. The budget-conscious adherents to this design philosophy appreciate the remarkable ability of plants to transform a space all on their own, and for relatively little money. When paired with elegant, traditional details such as a high-quality antique table, a sparse, white interior populated by hanging plants can feel downright upscale.
