SUN Room

6.02.2011

I have had several say they wanted to see the sun room again and now is a good time while it is bright and shining and the leaves are green outside. Not so pretty in the winter. I do use this room year  round though. Now I will warn you I just cleaned all these windows so they would be all purdy for my visitors on Friday. Wow, is it bright in here. Good to get the muck off and let the sun shine in!

There is plenty of seating, lots of books and a television so come on in and put your feet up.

 See all that glare. Those windows are sparkling now!



Tried the succulents here, but moved them back closer to the windows.













 




 Purchased this vintage tole tray on ebay years ago.


That is how it looks for now. The succulents are doing well. If I were to change one thing in here it would be to have some slipcovers made for the two vintage chairs I inherited. I did choose the fabric they are in now many many years ago. Eventually I will find someone in the Atlanta area that does slips.

Details:
Pottery Barn slipcovered sofa
Vintage chairs from grandmother
coffee table given to me by my sister
bamboo side table purchased at a home decor store on sale for only $13
round scalloped edge side table bought at a local decor shop that is no longer in business
rug is from overstock.com
clock is from hudsongoods.com
Coca Cola crate, potting shed sign, Lake Rabun sign (where Mr. Savvy's family is from), plant pots, and large bird house all from antique shops
Pepsi crate from PB was a gift from my daughter
wicker chair was originally brown then I painted it yellow and recently painted it white is from Pier One 
t.v. cabinet purchased at Home Goods and I painted it and added fabric to the doors
most pillow covers from Pottery Barn over the years

We added this room onto the house several years ago so we could see the pond from inside. The beadboard is real tongue and groove. Mr. Savvy wired this room, hung the beadboard, did all the trim  and I did all the painting. We both installed the tile floor.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great weekend!

  1. I could live just in this room. Well, with an attached bathroom :-) So beautiful. Love the pops of color. And I'd love to dig through your books then curl up and read.

    Thanks for sharing it.

  9. You and Mr. Savvy do some great projects in your home. It is so bright and cheerful. I love the pillow with three buttons. My windows need cleaning but it's to hot here in Arizona today to clean outside!

  10. Oh, Kim, I could move right in! I was going to say that I loved the vintage fabric on the comfy looking chairs, as they seem to really set the colours for the room. Slipcovers would be pretty too. I am really admiring the plant pots. The whole room is just so lovely. Thanks for sharing so many pretty photos. Although I don't have a sunroom or big porch, I am going back to slowly go through the pictures again just for enjoyment sake.

  13. I love your sunroom, Kim! I always love when you share it with us! Your windows do look sparkly. Do you have a favorite cleaning tip for windows? I am going to try one I read recently from Beth at A to Z. I have really got to get to mine!

  18. Just beautiful! I think every gal dreams of having a sun porch like that.

    Kim, I had my two dining room end chairs slipcovered last year. My favorite upholstery shop made them. Try that.

  41. I think this might be my favorite room in your house...the dining room is a close second! How do you keep your white slipcovers clean? I am struggling with mine...some of the doggie paw marks aren't coming out. Any advice you might have would be so appreciated...no hurry though.
    Thanks, Ann

  80. This room has to be one of my favorites! I love all the elements in the room. I need a new sofa and wonder how you like your PB sofa? Did you go basics or add upgrades like down? Also, did you do white denim or duck??

    ReplyDelete
  81. Kim, your sunroom is so beautiful and each time I see it, no matter what the season, it makes me want to get going on building ours! It certainly is wonderful inspiration!

    Your sun room looks so cosy and I really like the Coca Cola box and the old signs on the walls. Great pictures indeed!

  83. it is really warm and inviting!! i love the red and i notice you like your magazines too! xo susan

    ReplyDelete
  84. Please tell me about the red shutters.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Rachel, the red shutters were bought as four plain shutters at a salvage warehouse that were probably intended for closet bifolds. We purchased the four for $20 and then my husband hinged them together and I painted them off white first and then red last year.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Rachel I love all the red you used in your sunroom! Love the rooster pillow!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I've been looking for a round side table JUST LIKE YOURS! Sigh...I'm jealous!

    Gorgeus room!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Kim, it;s a good thing we don't live near each other because I would be coming over for coffee every day, invited or not! I would be the guest who never leaves. I've said before how much I love your home, but this takes the cake for me. This sunroom is absolutely beautiful. That red screen with the red pillow pop are so fantastic. And I LOVE the plates between the windows. Truly, it's just gorgeous. What I wouldn't give to have a room EXACTLY like that. You are such a talented girl. Thanks for sharing it. I'm going to go tell my husband to build me this off the back of my house!! Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete
  89. This room is absolutely stunning! I'll be over soon to sun in it ;)

  90. Kim...I am trying to catch up today on reading post and I think it is a losing battle :) Love your sunroom, such a happy place with just the right amount of old and new!

  91. I'm squealing just like that little piggy wants to....love everything in this room! Love those striped pots and that Rooster pillow is darling!

    I just bought a Pottery Barn Burlap shade this past week and love it, yours looks great!

    I'd love to sit and read a book in this cozy room!
