Renovation Update: Sunroom Decor

As we take a breather from construction and plan out the kitchen I have been trying to think about decorating this joint.  It’s a serious case of “the cobbler’s children have no shoes” because I have SUCH issues deciding on a style for my own home. Anyone else’s home, no problem. But when it comes to this house I want to make careful decisions and be patient and wait for what I love as opposed to furnish just for the sake of furnishing (advice I give clients all the time too).  So I am treating myself like a client and making scheme boards for each room.  It’s good to have a plan even if you aren’t buying everything all at once.  I thought I’d start with the sunroom (which we plan to eventually make a 4 season room) so instead of patio furniture I’m going with real living room pieces.  In the 6 weeks we’ve been here I’ve spent more time in this space then any other.  And this week I saw this sofa on Joss & Main and snapped it up on impulse, which I never do. I hope it works out!  I knew I wanted the room to be neutral with a pop of green, specifically Peter Dunham’s Fig Leaf print for a couple throw pillows.  The room is all sliding glass doors so I want the palette to be calm and not compete with the trees and grass outside.  I picked up two Target wood side tables this week as mentioned on yesterday’s post and am snagging a used CB2 lucite table from a friend! Adding in a Dash and Albert indoor/outdoor rug, a cozy throw for snuggling out there on chilly evenings and maybe even a leather butterfly chair, which reminds me of The Parker, one of our favorite hotels.  On the brick wall a small limed wood console for books and plants and above that a cool leather wrapped mirror.

I have to say, I love it!!!

One room down, six to go!

What the room looks like now (full of borrowed furniture from my parent’s barn and random left overs from our apartment)- we’re going to put in  french doors and a new floor and (ideally!) vault the ceiling with white wood beans!
