Shades of Spring Open House Party ...

Greetings, friends!

I'm happy to be joining several of my blogging friends today for our "Shades of Spring" open house!

And, as my "shade of Spring," I'm sharing our little sunroom. 

Set right off of the kitchen, this cozy spot has seen its fair share of decorating in the 10 months we've lived here ...

Its current "identity crisis" involved trading out all of the furniture in there for white slipcovered wing chairs (that used to be in the great room), and the duck egg accent chest (Kirkland's), along with cowhide rug (IKEA), that used to be in our sitting room.

Now that I had my staple pieces placed, it was time to add a bit of Spring!  That's when I grabbed a glass demi-john I had on hand and filled it with my favorite "go to" Spring floral branches from Michael's.

Wine corks always make a fun "filler" ...

Wine, anyone?  How about a faux grape?

Thankfully, our curtains (from Fabric Showcase in Myrtle Beach) play nicely with any season!

Maybe this "shade of Spring" blanket will invite you to curl up on a sunny afternoon and enjoy a good read that I have resting on a chalk painted stool (that is standing in as a "makeshift" side table).

A woven demi-john from TJMaxx was sitting in our storage room long enough ... soooo out it came, too!

And, as always, nothing says Spring like a cute faux plant from IKEA, now does it?

As I don't have any art on the walls (yet), pretty white plates help to fill the space for now.

And, there it is ... our little sunroom with a few shades of Spring.  Next, it will be time to add in coastal accents for the warm Summer months!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!

  8. Becca, I adore this gorgeous room! LOVE those curtains and the bamboo blinds with all the other great textural touches! I need you here to help give a little Becca spring decorating to StoneGable.

  9. What a nice space, Becca! I love that it is right off your kitchen, too, so it gives you some company when you have guests over and are getting things ready or just want to sit somewhere and read while waiting for dinner to be ready.

  19. Such a pretty, cozy spot for spring. Love the plants and flowers and all the woven accents, like the demijohn.

  21. I love the small stand between the two chairs. Can you share the color please.

  22. I love how you decorated that sunroom! It's so light and airy and cozy. Your white slipcovers on the chairs remind me of the one I got recently. Are they from Surefit? They look great. I love the duck egg dresser between the chairs too.

  23. Hi, What color are your walls? We have nearly identical furniture and we need to paint next week. Thank yoU!
