I Blame the Weather

2.01.2016

Yep, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. 
What do I do when winter storm Jonas is making me hunker down with blowing rain and sleet?
Apparently something comes over me and I try more new colors in the sun room.
Yes, I know you are saying to yourself....didn't she just paint and change this room?
Why yes, yes I did. Of course I didn't paint again, but I may have changed out the accessories.


Out with the blue and in with some pretty neutrals. All found in my stash. Not one single new thing was purchased for this change.

I love being able to change the colors in here now. I brought out my Bosporus toile pillows and mixed in my chocolate checked ones with them. I have had these for years.

This old pillow from the Restoration Hardware outlet takes the center spot.

A little leopard is always a good thing.



More spots on the other side of the room with this faux fur throw.

What's that you say? Oh, yes, I did put the tobacco basket in here after I had an epiphany.

All the lamp needed was a simple switch of the shade from black to neutral.

I love the texture this large piece brings to the room.





Vintage enamelware is filled with dried lavender.






And if you missed how it just looked you can see that here.

So what say ye? Like the neutrals?
Of course it will change again. I have a lot of pillows to play with in here.

I also hope these changes inspire you to try new looks in your own home.

Have a fabulous week!

  1. Well, the weather is certainly a good thing to blame it on!....So wonderful to have a neutral pallet so that you can change things up whenever you want... Love the brown tones and the tobacco basket looks great on the chest!....

  2. You are too funny! We probably had more snow here in our area, but really only hunkered down one day. I cleaned/organized drawers/cabinets! We were out and about the next day. Not sure I would put the basket in front of the windows, but hey, if you like it, it works! Do you never open the blinds?

    1. The baskets have been there for quite some time. Not much sun in that spot. The blinds are only on one side of the room where the sun pours in in the afternoon. No, they stay shut. To hard to get to to raise and lower.

    2. I was referring to the tobacco basket, not the chest baskets. :)

    3. Oh, that one. I wasn't even thinking about the tobacco basket. I always have art there on that chest since I have no walls for art to hang on.

  3. I love this look Kim. But then I love all your "looks". I'm still partial to the red check curtains but I suspect we will see them again at some point. This room is so adaptable to almost any color. Being able to change it up with the seasons is so fun. Maybe you could do a look of the week for a whole month :-)

  7. The blue was nice and cozy, but this neutral look has a very calm and relaxed look to it. I have loved all of your sunroom changes and it's always fun to see how you mix it up. I am slowly changing my wall colors to neutral, and am just loving the ease of decorating those spaces.

  11. Love the changes! I think I want to go with a lighter neautra in some of my rooms so I can easily change things out the way you do. I love change too. I'm craving some spring changes right now.

    1. Thanks, Barb. I answered this by email, but for others who may want to know the sofa is the Pottery Barn basic and I have had it for many years.

  17. It's beautiful, as anything you touch is, but I still miss some color in the sun room because it's such a light and bright space.

  18. At first I thought your checked pillows were a burgundy...but I'm so glad they were a chocolate brown because I just ordered a fabric swatch from Country Curtains in the brown Buffalo check! I do love all the neutrals in this room, but I love the red too:)

    1. Yes, chocolate they are. I got mine from Ballards years ago, but they still carry this fabric I think.

  19. Looks wonderful! I think we should start a new decorating trend called "stash" decor. I am getting ready to do some stash decorating soon too! Ha! Lose its! Sheila

  32. Well Kim, you don't need to ask me if I like the neutrals? I love them...
    I find this room so peaceful with a grace of French farmhouse elegance.
    Love the stacked baskets, and the mix of textiles you used, all working together seamlessly, not one piece fighting for attention in this room.

    I kind of hope you don't bore of this look for awhile and keep it around for us to enjoy a bit longer.
    Enjoy your winter days, with spring soon enough .
    Your year around neutrals inspire.

  33. How you continually change things is amazing. Every now and then I tweak a thing or two, but redoing usually involves moving things around.

  34. Loving the soft neutrals and the animal print. Plus that tobacco basket! I have one in my dining room and if I didn't restrain myself, I would have one in every room! lol

  37. Are your walls and ceiling beadboard? I just love them and would love to do mine that way to make it feel more "country". We built and moved into our house 4 years ago but already see things I would love to change.

    1. Yes it is tongue and groove bead board my husband installed when we added this room on many years ago.
