"She sheds" are dreamy and all, but what about when it’s freezing and you don’t want to venture outdoors? And what if you don’t have the acreage upon which to build one in the first place? Enter: the “winter garden room.”

We’ve been noticing many of our favorite designers adapting the conservatory concept (for those who, you know, don’t live in chateaus) by transforming sunrooms, swing rooms, even nooks and alcoves into everyday escapes. Sound involved? It’s actually quite easy: All you need is a sunny spot and the will to green thumb. We trolled Pinterest for the best ways to DIY your own.
