A New Shade for the Sunroom

Pin It!
Yay, one project down ... 1,000 to go!  

Sometimes, I feel like "on a whim" should be my middle name!  As I was staring at our little sunroom last week, I decided that I wanted it to feel a bit "coastal-y" and serene ... that's when I turned to Sherwin Williams' Palladian Blue (and our tall, scary ladder) and got to work!  


And, when it was time to put the room back together, more changes were in order ...

I brought in our seagrass rug from the sitting room as the room's anchor.  Then, in came the "wicker-y" love seat from our deck ... I like the natural texture it adds, and how it ties in with the bamboo shades.


I then brought in a pair of coastal prints from Home Goods.




When I spied this cute "Shore Thing" pillow at Home Goods, I knew it would be a fun addition ... I really like it paired with the blue/white stripe pillow (cover from Pottery Barn).


Since the new wall art has silver frames, I added in silver candle holders on our coffee table to pull it all together ...


along with this silver-framed nautical print (which is magically *floating,* thanks to Command Hooks and fishing line).



Back on the coffee table, a sweet orchid (from Target) adds a bit of softness ...



Of course, with this being our little "coastal" spot to relax, a few issues of "Coastal Magazine" are a must,


and this little faux furry foot stool (try saying that fast 5 times!) seemed to be the perfect spot to display them and to pull around and rest your feet on while you enjoy them.


We plan on adding a new chandie in here, too ... just waiting for the one I want to go on sale!


I'll also add a few more coastal accents in here, I'm sure ... for now, onto the next project! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the changes you made in the sun room! Love the addition of the wicker settee and the wall color is beautiful. This room definitely screams coastal charm...wishing I was on Myrtle Beach as we speak! Thanks for the inspiration!

I've always loved Palladian Blue but don't have a room to use it in (yet!) As usual, your home looks magazine worthy. I bet you love spending time in your sunroom...perfect place for a glass of tea (or wine) and a good book.

You are brave to get on a ladder...we just hire it out cause the hubs "ain't" gonna paint and neither am I (he's got me spoiled like that)!

Have a wonderful week Becca.

We painted our master Benjamin Moore's palladian blue, and I swear, it's the happiest color in the world. You simply cannot wake up in a bad mood with this color!!

Just beautiful! Cool crisp and inviting. Love the color combinations..esp with the bamboo shades and the complimentary wicker.... reminds me of drift wood on the beach. You sure have a great eye for decorating Becca!

Hi Becca, I always love your style. I was wondering where you got the curtains in this room? Awesome job!

Carol said...

OMGoodness, you've got that "Becca-thang" going again! It looked lovely before, but I do like that pretty soft blue and all of your pretty accents. Does your hubby ever walk in the door and wonder if he's in the right house? Have more creative days and enjoy!

Kelly said...

I love your blue and white color scheme. It definitely has a coastal feel now. I have a subscription to Coastal Living too. That's a great magazine for inspiration. I like the texture you brought in with the shades and the rug.
