A Kitchen Built In a Converted Greenhouse

Kitchen Spotlight

One of my favorite kitchens as of late has to be Amy and Rob's Rhode Island kitchen built in a — wait for it — converted greenhouse! With its original A-frame roofline and floor-to-ceiling windows, this kitchen is truly lovely and one-of-a-kind.

As Rob and Amy MacMillan share in this recent Apartment Therapy House Tour, their Newport, Rhode Island home used to be the greenhouse for the Bonniecrest Mansion. It was converted into a house in the 1950s, and the MacMillans bought it 11 years ago.

You can most clearly see the vestiges of the old greenhouse in the design of the kitchen, with its wall of windows, copper windowsills, tons of natural light, and classic A-frame shape. Custom-designed cabinets and optimized storage (like the space for shoes underneath the banquette bench) make the most of the room's hard angles.

How much do I want to sit and eat breakfast right in this spot? So much.

So, so great. Make sure to check out the rest of the house, too!
