Sun Room Now

10.01.2010

I have been sharing some little changes made in the sun room this week and now I will show you how it is warmed up for the cooler weather ahead. First let me remind you how it looked before.





Look at my new slipcover. This is the Pottery Barn Maize colored slip for my PB basic sofa.
I found it on ebay and am so glad I did.


I love how much this one change has warmed up the room.


I changed out some of the pillows.


Now if I could just decide which pillows I like better on here. This is my newest one from ebay.


Bunny is back in this spot.


I guess you noticed that I put my picnic basket arrangement in here.


and moved my vintage coca cola crate from the flea market here


Moved the rooster lamp up here. Love this lamp on at night on this cabinet.


See my vintage Pepsi crate? My daughter gave me that for helping with her baby shower.


Made this fall arrangement and placed it on the little chippy yellow table.








Took this jar and filled it with natural fall items and wrapped some jute webbing around it 
for added texture.





Still moving pillows around.
I'll figure it out soon.








Now you see why I changed the color of the cabinet. The other bold yellow clashed with 
the new slipcover.


One more look

  2. I like the new cover. It's very similar to one I have on my chair. I love all your pillows. I have never looked on ebay for them, perhaps I should! The colors all look so nice together now with the new painted cupboard.

  3. Wow! I loved the first look but I have to say that what you've done is professional, homey, stylish and pulled together in a very upscale yet welcoming way. Looks great! Jennifer jennsthreegraces stop by!

  6. The slip cover from Pottery Barn (ebay) was an awesome find...could not be more perfect. All your warm Fall touches are magnificent. As far as the pillows go, you have enough to figure out just the right arrangement. Thanks for joining me Kim. Debbie

  7. I love your sunroom! Your new slip cover really added some color...it looks great. I move my pillows around a lot and never seem to be happy where I put them. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Wonderful changes, Kim. The new slip cover color really warmed up the room, I love the color. Your sun room is so pretty, very comfy! I do not have a new camera. I have been using my Sony H9 which I really love. I have had it for 2 years now. I have a smaller one, Sony also, with a higher MP and can take panorama but I like the quality of the H9 camera better...Christine

  12. Kim, I LOVE your new slipcover! Heck, I LOVE the whole room! All your pillows and accents! I want to steal your coca cola crate! And I think it was fate you posted this, I was JUST looking on OB website last night trying to decide between the basic and the grand (just a matter of size!) LOVE seeing it again in your home! :)

  13. Looking at the before picture, I didnt know how you could improve because it was already beautiful! But I love the pops of color you added. The yellows and reds are the perfect touch. Its a gorgeous room!

  14. Weren't you smart to get a basic Pottery Barn sofa? Now you'll be able to team it with all sorts of seasonal colors via their slipcovers!!! The room is gorgeous--whether it's dressed for warm or cool weather.

  16. Kim, This is a wonderful fall transformation!
    I LOVE the butter yellow slipcovers. I can't believe you got them from ebay! SCORE!!!!
    Please put the bunny pillow in the middle of your sofa. He is so very handsome and the black background looks great against the sofa. Nice ballance too.
    I love all the changes. I'm going right back for another long look.
    I kept saying out loud, "Oh my word, Oh my word!"
    YOur changes made this sunroom cool weather ready and very warm!
    I love every single detail.
    Beautiful, you have a gift. Can you come to my house to work your magic?

  20. The slipcovers and pillows really made a difference! I bought some of the jute but wasn't sure how I would use it! Great idea! I love your room...I would LIVE in it! ♥

  21. What luck finding that slipcover! It looks great in the room and does warm it up. TV cabinet definitely looks better in this color. I like that yellow chippy table!

  22. So lovely. It reminds me of the Southern Homes display rooms but yours has a lived in warmth that shows in your pictures. Really enjoyed seeing it. What a change, especially the slipcovers.

  23. What a cozy area you have created.

  24. Kim- It look beautiful. I love the new slipcover-it is perfect. How is the PB couch for sitting on? It looks beautiful-is it comfortable as well? I need a new sofa for our great room. The one I have is very bulky and I do like it - but not in this room. I was so frustrated with looking and we had a big celebration coming up in this house so I "settled" to get something in here. It came with a matching love seat which is in my daughter's sun room (shhhh...MrK thinks it might be downstairs-lol). so...that is my next BIG goal. We don't have a PB any place close to where we are-but there is one by my daughter.

    Thanks for the beautiful Fall display. I love the color of the new paint on your toned down piece...it looks lovely with your slipcover. As for the pillows? You're on your own..lol You have a good eye and you will know where it looks best when it lands there- Hugs-off to work for me now- Diana

  25. Morning, Kim! Oh, I love your new slipcover and your pillows! You're so good! Your tv cabinet looks marvelous in the softer yellow. Everything is gorgeous!! You're too good! :)

  26. Love it Kim! The new slipcover made a huge difference.
    Love how you wrapped jute around the vase. I've been doing that for a while. Only around candles. All your accessories and pillows really work well together. So, is it done yet?

  27. WOW! It looks gorgeous. You definitely have an eye for decorating. I love your new pillows and slipcover. Everything is just perfect. I LOVE your style.

  35. Kim your rooms are always picture perfect..i came across a post this am had a riding hat in there shop and thought of you right away but i could not for the life of me remember if you had 1 in that sitting room.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like the new maize slipcover very much! That color looks so good in there! Just wondering where do you keep all the pillows when not using them? I have an issue with too many pillows and not enough storage space. I also really love that Pepsi crate! I am a Pepsi gal through and through! So this is one crate I would really love. haha!

  44. *Ha-uge* score on the PB slipcover! It is perfect in your sunroom, which was alREADY magazine-worthy! I love all the pillows and how you've mixed them all together ... it works really well out there in your sunny and happy sunroom! I'm on my way over with a bottle of wine! *Becca*

    ReplyDelete
  45. Kim your sunroom looks fabulous! I love all the changes - especially the pale yellow slip on the sofa. I like that last arragement of pillows the best - with the new ebay pillow and the blue bunny one and the red one on the chair. But why am I giving you advice? You don't need it!
    xoxo,

  49. Hi Kim! That slipcover is gorgeous and that one change really does take you into the new season! I just love this room and especially love that new pillow you got on Ebay! I'm thinking of a few spots in my house where that would look pretty good! :-) I wasn't sure if you knew that I host an Inspiration Friday party each week and I would love for you to join sometime. I know there are A LOT of parties out there so, no pressure...but you always have such gorgeous things to share!

Heck, I love it all! Thank you so much for linking this fabulous room to Favorite Things Sat. laurie
