Summer Sunroom 2016

6.15.2017

It's summer, it's hot and sticky and life is slower. I am just beginning to share how I have added summer in the house this year and I will be sharing the sunroom next week. Before I share how it looks now I am sharing last year's look again since a lot has changed since then.
Enjoy 😊

Summer Sunroom 2016

  I love to change up my rooms seasonally with just a few simple accessory changes like switching out pillows and bringing in things that speak summer like shells, coral and hydrangeas. This year the room is dressed in blue and white which makes it feel cool on these sultry days. The best thing I did a few months ago was to paint the walls in Dove White by Benjamin Moore to really brighten this room up.
 I'm not going to say much and just let the photos do the talking. 



One of the first things you'll notice is I painted the bench blue and I love this pop of color.

I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Artissimo.

















I like to bring this lighthouse on St. Simons Island painting back out each summer. It reminds me of my childhood years when we lived there.







I hope y'all enjoyed that especially my new readers.
In a few short days I'll share this year's sunroom so stay tuned.

  7. Love what you did the sunroom. Dove White is one of my favorite whites. I may have missed it somewhere on your blog, but what brand is your white sofa. I am in love with it.

  11. I'm confused, in the picture with the two windows that are covered with bamboo shades, you have the window to the side that has a curtain with a rod that looks like it only covers half of the window. Is it just the way the picture was taken or is there a reason for that??? The room is beautiful.

    1. The curtains are only hanging in the two corners and are only for softening the wall. They are not used. The shades are only on the three windows on the side that the sun pours in all afternoon. I had to block it or burn up.
