How English...wonderfully English; the conservatory. I have to start with my absolutely favourite design book: Bunny Williams "An Affair with a House." It is a dream house with a hospitable, comfy feel to it. Gorgeous rooms and gardens. The dining conservatory is spectacular; made from old windows she found (wish I were that lucky!).
The porch is also cozy conservatory-like. I can picture enjoying a good book here.
