Sun Room Summer Vignettes

6.27.2013

I have been adding a bit of summer in the sun room. I think nothing says summer like the sea.

I really need to get some non glare glass for this shadowbox. I'll add that to my to do list. Remember that I had this framed naval shirt of Mr. Savvy's in the guest bedroom before the makeover? Well, I am glad it works here for a summer vignette.

I pulled this coral from the master bathroom to use under a cloche.

I grabbed this little bamboo lamp from my hoarding room stash and the brass RH lamp has moved to another room.

I added my ticking striped pillows to the bench and placed my doggie pillow here since a different pillow has been placed on the sofa. That's for another post.


I also grabbed this old PB lantern from my stash and added a seafan to it and placed this on the t.v. cabinet.


I added this photograph, that I took last fall and had made into a canvas, on the wall above the red bench.

Simple changes just by shopping the house is all it took to add a summer vibe.
If you don't remember how this looked before you can see it here.

Changing things up seasonably keeps things fresh. 
Do you do that?

I hope you come back tomorrow for another fabulous favorite room.

  9. I don't make that many changes for the seasons. I use many family and personal type accessories that have meaning to us. I don't change these type things often. I like our "collected over time" look. I did change pillows/throw in our sunroom and pillows, etc. in the great room, but that's about it. I feel like our house tells the story of us, our life, even past generations. That's more important to us than keeping things fresh. We decided long ago to use things we love and that have meaning to us/our family. Those are things we don't seem to tire of.

  26. Awesome, awesome! It is perfect summery w/out being over done. Especially love that navel shirt, the dog pillow and of course, the sea gull pic. Spending every summer @ Cape Cod growing up sea gulls are very much a part of my summer memories!

  29. Yep- I love the beachy feel you have added there, Kim. I keep our downstairs media room in a beachy sort of feeling all year long-but it is darker. I LOVE that picture you had made into a canvas. That was a great shot-xo Diana

  31. You have some great summer touches... but my favorite is the sailor suite. I can't remember, but I think it belonged to a member of your family didn't it? It's a gem!

  33. I love Mr. S's Navy suit, always have since you framed it. Great idea to use it in here for summer. As SOON as we get home (we are on vacation) I will be pulling out the summer decor, pillows, shells etc. Love your pretty vignettes. I am in NC right now at the OBX! XO, Pinky

  34. Hi Kim, Yes, I like to keep things moving as I clean and redecorate. I tend to get stuck in ruts nonetheless. You always inspire me to try something new. Thanks for your lovely decorating!
