New sun room!
As promised, I painted the sun room first in my new color scheme.
I am so happy with the result! The paint is dark but with all the windows the room actually feels more defined. My homemade Roman shades also look great, as does my recently painted couch and mid-century chair. Everything has pulled together just wonderfully.
For a recap, here’s the before in a sort of brownish pink color – not terrible, just not really a color that goes well with our taste:
The woodwork looks amazing, and all our little oddities and antique treasures really stand out. In addition to new paint I was also able to find yet another piece (again at Target, of course) to tie all my colors together. The rug – a Threshold Marrakesh rug, if you need one yourself – is the perfect size and texture to ground the room. I was so excited to have found it in store!
Someday I’m sure I’ll have to actually reupholster that chair and couch, but for now they work just beautifully.
That is an adorable sunroom. I love how it is small and cozy, which is perfect for reading. I would probably put in a chaise lounge because I love to lay down when I relax with a book. I wish I could join your dog napping in a spot of sun on the floor. That is exactly why I want a room like this. Building a sunroom is not as complicated as most people might assume, especially if you already have a porch that you don’t use, or a large part of another room that could be sectioned off.
Thank you! That sofa sort of followed me from my very first apartment to here but I agree, I would LOVE a chaise there… or anywhere. I love the look of them.
Thankfully this was original to the house so we didn’t have to build it, but the side porches in several of the homes here have been turned into wonderful sunrooms with great windows and views.
Thanks again for your kind comments!
I love the paint color…do you know the name?
