Our Sunroom Today ...

Happy Thursday, friends!

Can you believe it's already Memorial Day weekend ... hope you have nice plans in store.

Ya' know ... our little sunroom has seen too many arrangements to count in the short 2 1/2 years we've lived here.  I'm afraid it's always going to suffer from a permanent identity crisis. 

One thing that hasn't changed though is the fact that there's something about this space that sucks me in ... to either hop on my computer ... take a snooze ... or visit with family/friends.  These days, maybe it's the Ektorp chairs that we added in here that call my name (they used to be part of the 4 chair "configuration" in our front sitting room, but I broke them up ... oops).

Once I brought in the chairs, I then added the little accent chest (that I had moved back into the dining room after Christmas). I then replaced our beige/white checked curtains with these simple white ones. I know many will say it's way too much white, but, these days, I can't get enough of it ... it's calming.   At least our walls are painted Palladian Blue (for now) which gives a bit of contrast.

It's nice to pull out these cute footstools when you need extra seating OR you want to kick up your feet (which tends to happen a lot in here).

Nothing like faux roses from Home Goods to add a bit of *life* to the space, right? 

I also scooped up a few fun French prints from IKEA not too long ago ... they're a nice filler for these walls and were super inexpensive, too!

This coastal print has made its way around our house, now landing here.  It's nice to stare off into it, pretending we're near the ocean again ... if only it were real!

While I've changed the look in here time and time again, I have an idea (well, make that two!) for this space that will be a bit more permanent ... just have to talk my hubby into it. **Fingers crossed!**

As always, thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. Becca, I love all the white with the blue. Very refreshing for the hot months ahead!

  2. The all white looks so cool and refreshing. Gorgeous.

  3. LUV!!!!
    The pale blue with the crisp white is so pretty. So summertime.
    I find myself going back to my nice calming white!!
    Surprised the Mr. by adding LOUD pops of citrine in our sun room. I saw the cushions and grabbed them and a rug with a citrine border. It just yelled summertime to me. We'll see how long it lasts . Hahahaha

  4. Looks beautiful the all white drapes!....and love how you propped that canvas against the that look!
    I cannot wait to see what your more "permanent" idea is! Have a great weekend!

  5. Everything looks absolutely amazing!! Wow, to have a decorators eye (which I don't even come close to having) Great job!!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. I love everything you do to this room! I can't wait to see the next update. But for now I really like this. It is so summery.

  7. It looks so pretty and fresh, Becca. One thing good about getting your ocean-beach fix with art prints, you don't have to worry about hurricanes!


  8. White is very popular now, still it does get dirty very quickly.

  9. I am always trying to talk my husband into something decorating related... Love the room! It looks so summery and relaxing. Enjoy your week!

  10. It's so white..and so cozy..indeed looks relaxing..and gives the impression what your house is somewhere on the beach..I'd love to sit on one of those chairs, relaxing and drinking tea while having my paper written by WriteMyEssayFast..well looks like I'm dreaming..


I appreciate your comments!
