It’s springtime, time to dress up those special rooms in our homes where the sun streams in on long summer days. Need a little inspiration to get you going? Oh my, you are in for a treat today because Shirley is sharing her sunroom makeover and it is wonderful! Welcome, Shirley and thanks so much for letting us tour your beautiful sunroom today!
Hello Between Naps on the Porch readers!
My name is Shirley and I blog at Housepitality Designs.
I was over the top honored when Susan asked me to guest post today.
I recently did a little makeover in my sunroom . . .
~ ~ and it is revealed for the very first time here at Between Naps on the Porch.
The furniture cushions previously had a floral fabric . . .
I had them slip-covered by my friend Linda . . .
~ ~ in the same fabric as my dining room valances.
I love the lighter feel of the fabric.
New red chevron’esqe pillows were also made. . .
~ ~ from the same fabric as my slipcovered ottomans.
As you can see, this room has great light.
The wicker furniture is by Lane . . Trade Winds Collection.
This space is a cozy one to sit and read and relax . .
~ ~ yet you feel still a part of what is going on in the house . .
~ ~ ~ as this room is adjacent to the kitchen.
Love to create and change out vignettes in this room frequently . .
This room was originally designed for a breakfast room.
However, being the room is adjacent to both the kitchen with many barstools . .
~ ~ and also adjacent to the dining room (which we use often) . . .
~ ~ ~ ~ I felt this room served better as a sitting/sunroom.
On the other side of the seating . . is my “potting bench”…
~ ~ when I spotted this piece in the showroom, I knew this was the set . .
~ ~ ~ ~ the set I wanted for the new sunroom.
I love decorating the bench with a garden theme .
And some vintage pieces scattered here and there . . .
Including a pie safe . .
The ottoman in the lower left of this picture has the original fabric . .
~ ~ which was on the furniture. I was told my by budding decorator, granddaughter . .
~ ~ ~ ~ that I must leave that fabric on the ottoman, because she loves it.
So it stayed!!!
The pie safe is used to store vintage garden pots and garden tools.
Shirley Poppy Seed Packets and vintage garden tools . .
~ ~ gifts from friends, Mary and Kim.
I love the new look of my sunroom . . perfect for Spring and Summer . .
So does that statement mean there could be a new look for Fall and Winter?
I want to thank you Susan so very much for having me here today . . .
~ ~ it is such a thrill, as I have been following you happily for many years!
