Okay, so it's been since the fall since I've updated about the sunroom.
I HATE an unfinished project, and that's pretty much the state I've been living in for a while, but anyway, here we are.
Originally, we had two entries cut into the office, but my friend and fellow decorator, Chris Hutchens came over and helped me see the light. I knew things were just not right with the two entries (apparently trying to receive a sense of balance in a room that is as off balance as this one is best done by keeping the lack of balance...odd), so we came up with this design to go to the ceiling and only have one entrance, and dry-walled her up. I do like it so much better, and the tv is going to fit much better on this wall now.
So, I'm going to keep plugging away, but just wanted to update and gather my thoughts...
We also added the ladder up to the loft, which Blake surprised me with, and I LOVE IT! He did a great job.
There's the light from Ballard in all it's glory, and the TV will move and be centered on the loft wall.
The piano is not staying here (I have to get it away from the windows for tuning purposes), but I had to get it out of the office so I could finish up in there.
So, paint paint paint. But what colors? Hm, let's see a little inspiration...
These two pictures I love because of the sectionals. I think they are super functional for parties, and the leather is great with kids and durability, but the white is the style, edge, and femininity I like. White never bores me, and mix it with some flowers for that pop of color, and I am a smitten kitten.

This room is great because it is similarly off-balance like my sunroom. I LOVE the mounts! I really do, and I think mounts absolutely belong in my house to bring the southern masculinity that surrounds me. I am also crazy about the natural feel of the tree trunk table. Also, I go back and forth on window treatments in here. I like that this room looks great without them. And I love the map covering up the television on a barn door rail. Very sexy. Finally, I like this floor. I have been thinking about repainting the blue tile instead of floating a cork floor, but I'm still not sure.
Here are the cork options:
That's probably my toughest decision I have to make right now.
Here's some other things I have going on in the sunroom that will be staying:
Papa Bear's Chair (minus the pillow probably)...
This painting. I love the colors...
Of course, the chandelier. Just thought I would show it again...
Also, since I discovered that my angled ceiling is not flat or even, I really love these beams as an alternative. I also like the more modern style of these chairs combined with the cottage look:
In this room, I love how they have the touches of gold with all the distressed and white. Again, a sectional is functional for groups, and I love the touches of organic material here with the trunk and the antlers. Also, I am crazy about how soft and comfy that rug looks:
In this room, I am looking at the grey and white hues with the natural wood coffee table. Love it. Also, the layered rugs, and I am not going to lie, I have wondered if we should save and add a fireplace under where the tv is going to go on the new wall:
Hm...about $1900. ???
I am not sure what it is that I love so much about this room, but I am pretty sure it's, of course, the architecture, the collected over time, feel, and coziness. (There is also a lot in this room I hate (the clutter, those star things hanging from the ceiling), but I LoVe the rugs, the modern touches from the coffee table and chairs, and wait, did I already say architecture:
From this room, the grey and white, the RUG RUG RUG, and modern details again with some rustic, but not quite enough rustic for me:
I love this room! But especially the rug and the long bench type coffee table. I also love the floral arrangements, and of course, the moody greige colors:
Details Details Details...
I feel strongly that I want to adopt a tree for the sunroom. It will be our newest family member with name and all. (Maybe then I'll remember to take care of her).
But, which one should it be?:
Build in television?
White? Grey chaise?
Coffee tableS? White?
Love these details:
I like this coffee table from West Elm(rustic and storage):
A few pieces I love by GabbyHome:
And I love this sectional by Palmer:
I would love to have thoughts, input, etc. So, feel free, and I will hopefully get to update more soon!
