Remember when I posted about my sunroom eleventy billion years ago? It was right before Christmas and I didn’t take great shots because my Christmas decorations were up, and I love you all but I don’t love you enough to take my entire Christmas tree down and do a photo shoot and then put it back up. Well, what the world’s longest run on sentence ever is trying to tell you is I had to take a few shots of my living room/sunroom area last week for something upcoming that I’m working on (more on that next month) and I thought I would quick share them with you.
I still need to do to a whole sunroom completed project recap post, but I’m waiting for the lake to melt (crossing my fingers that happens soon!) and the trees to get some leaves, so you can really see how heavenly it is to hang out in this room.
Oh, and remember the reader survey? One of the biggest questions I got was where we keep our tv. Here it is! I tend to crop it out of my shots or not shoot this angle so you don’t see it, because, ugh who loves the dreaded large black box? We had specific builtins made in this corner to house the tv, and yes, in hindsight I could have put cabinet doors over it. It’s one of the 100 things I kick myself over, unfortunately, we didn’t leave enough room to have doors that would slide back, so maybe someday when we buy a smaller tv? The Mr. is not onboard with this suggestion.
You’ll notice in the above shot, I moved the white love seat that normally hangs out here. I just wanted to show you that the sunroom actually steps down a step from the living room. I had 2 thoughts behind that, 1. it made the flooring transition easier and 2. the view from the kitchen and living room is better having the windows and furniture down lower.
I love how the detail of the side transoms turned out. I originally wanted side transoms plus an upper transom, but it would have been too low so we cut that idea.
Alright I moved the chair back and this is what it actually currently looks like…
and pardon the bad photos I still haven’t figured out how to shoot this room without it looking like you should “walk towards the light”! We get SO much sun thru these south facing windows and I really wish I was a good enough photographer to capture the gorgeous light in here.
Anyways, hope that gives you a better idea of the space. I mean the space when it’s cleaned up, currently there are 3 loads of laundry sitting in the living room staring at me wanting to be folded. I just can’t face it, anyone else feeling like a zombie since daylight savings? My kids are NOT feeling this new hour earlier schedule thing, we are limping through the week over here. Thankfully I have been able to sneak a few sun soaked catnaps in this room :)
