Refreshed Sun Room

My sun room and its many changes now has a refreshed look. I have shown you bits and pieces of this room for the last couple of months and now here is the whole room. I love color and loved this room in each form it has been through, but I just needed it fresher and lighter with a few pops of color in the accessories.



I replaced the old wicker chair with this bench.






So far this fern is doing quite well.





Striped pillows are from Pottery Barn outlet and the floral ones I purchased from Joss & Main with a credit.

  3. Love the sunroom. My favorite piece is the vintage demijohn lamp. I love it! Do you know there used to be a warehouse on Huff Road where I used to get all my demijohns.... Priced 18.00- $50.00(for the largest ones). It closed before I moved to NOLA in 2008. My only suggestion might be to add a floor lamp to the right side of the room near the bench to help balance the light in the room. Great room! I'd live in there. Best!

  4. I absolutely love all the elements of this room! I love the vignettes captured in the baskets and the bench is great! The pillows add so much with the pop of color. Enjoy!

  5. Oh my gosh. This is neutrals done perfectly. Adore the pops of color. The little sachets on your coffee table are very cute too. :o) Come visit me...I blogged about you today.

  6. What a lovely room and a great view. I liked this sunroom of yours each time I saw it, but this is my favourite version. I love the art pieces above the windows. Love the colours and the pillows look so comfy. I definitely need new pillows for our family room after seeing how cushy yours look. Oh, and a fern for some color and 'life' too. Thanks for continuing to inspire.

  7. I like the beadboard and the lightness in the room. The blue accessories add just the special touch.

    Is that a sisal or sea grass rug? I love it....

  31. Hi Kim: I looked back on the different faces of your sunroom, as I wasn't around for the original posts. I truly think you have hit the nail on the head with this renewal. Not that the others weren't pretty, because they were, but this looks really soft and breezy, like a sunroom should. Good job..Happy Monday..Judy
