Potting Shed Inspo Because It’s Snowing And I’m Dreaming Of Spring

It's snowing here in northwest Connecticut, so what better time to daydream about spring and planting, which brings my thoughts to...greenhouses and potting sheds! As I'm brainstorming how to create space for gardening in my next home, I've gathered some of my favorite potting shed and greenhouse inspiration. If gardening is your passion and you're wondering where all those seed starters should go, this one's for you!

Potting Shed & Greenspace As An Extension Of The Home

If you love gardening as much as I do, there’s something so delightful and appealing about having your gardening space just off the house (and ideally filled with light!). I absolutely adore this space by Bath Conservation Architects for those very reasons.

This Victorian dairy conversion by Imperfect Interiors also achieves the indoor/outdoor flow to perfection.

As A Space For Escape

I’m not sure much actual gardening takes place in this gorgeous little space by Beata Heuman but it sure does speak to me. I love the windows, the juxtaposition of the interior paint with the exterior paint and greenery…all of it really.

As A Fun(ky) And Functional Workspace

I love the checkered floor in this space. And it feels truly functional as a potting shed, optimized for storage and the potential of mess.

While not so funky (but super gorgeous), this space by Atelier Roan also feels like it’s created for someone who gardens. Loving all the drawers and shelving.
