Sunroom Sanctuary

We started at the bottom now we're here.

This room was truly a blank slate when we were called in to make it into the sanctuary of a sunroom. After renovating the kitchen and living areas of their home, these clients wanted this sitting room off of the kitchen to be a happy, comfortable place for both themselves and their frequent favorite visitors (grandkids) to hang out and enjoy company in.

It's that life-of-the-party, mic-drop kind of room that really commands major attention when you walk into the space. Its just so dang happy with all the right bits of flavor mixed in between.

I always start with textiles, and these curtains are most definitely vying for the main event. Yet, they also do a great job in allowing the many details built throughout the room to speak for themselves. Once curtains were on lock, it was all about layering the right patterns here and textures there.

To set the foundation, we choose a settee in a kid-proof performance fabric. This rug with subtle yellow pattern came next as the perfect option to anchor our room. Keeping what mattered, we reupholstered the clients existing chair in this bold blue and chose to pipe in a vivid dark orange. I really dug this repurposing, all about saving the items you covet and want to keep!

Sourcing this big kid friendly ottoman pulled everything together, I also like how we arranged occasional chairs throughout- just in case everyone wants to congregate in happiest room of the house all at once. Last but certainly far from least, the bookshelf and chest served great purpose for both item display and storage.

I think my very favorite part of this room is the art propped up throughout. Kim Hassold's piece sitting pretty atop the bookshelf is a jaw dropper. It's just so good, reflective of one of my Greenville favorites. Its a bookshelf of collections really- Sally B's abstract just looks so dang fresh perched on the center shelf, and Sunny Mullarkey's framed Bee print is the perfect medium to stand as the base of our display. Dana Gibson's lamps are always hold their own in the artwork department.

I think of this room as a wonderful color-infused party happening right where the sun meets the light, mixing in bright elements with both rustic features and wood tones. This client asked for vibrant and functional, thus, a rockin' sitting room was formed.
