After the family bedroom, the next room to get some decorating attention is the sunroom.
This room was a screened in porch before the renovation. It was a room that people loved to hang out in. Coffee in the morning, card games, beverages in the afternoon and long chats into the evening made this a very popular hangout location. As part of the renovation the space was made year-round with a design goal of keeping the porch feel.
It is a separate room off the kitchen, making it cozy but easily accessible and part of the flow of the house.
Over the last month we added a rug, the round table and lots of pillows on the sofa and the sunporch for comfort. Here is the link to my first pillow post for this room.
Importantly, all the fabrics in this room (with the exception of the two round bolsters) are made of durable Sunbrella or comparable outside fabric. I don't want to worry about wet bathing suits, dogs or spills. At this point, I've made all simple pillows, most with piping. I make my own pillow inserts (much cheaper than buying pillow forms) and put zippers with a flap closing on the back.
I love how this room came out. It feels cozy, bright and easy to relax in.
Next room: the family room!
