Sunroom/Living Room Stuff

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 :)

  1. Hi Kelly.

    I noticed you have a long cushion on the window seat in the sun room. Did you have that custom made or could you share where you bought it?

    Everything looks beautiful!

  2. Beautiful sunroom. Is this a 4 season sunroom? We are in SF Bay Area and considering putting a sunroom however I am not quite sure if the sunroom how to heat or cool the sunroom, would love some ideas!


  3. Your furnishings/decor in the living room are so similar to mine I wish I could send you a photo!

  4. Beautiful !! You are so gifted and creative!, lLove how your sunroom turned out!

  5. Oh my! I’m so excited that I found your blog! We are moving from TX to MN and I need inspiration for my home in that kind of climate with seasons. I love to see so much white as in MN that does not seem normal, but I love it! Does it feel too chilly in the winter or cheery? Also, love the gateleg table and a million other things in your home. So beautiful!

    1. Thanks Suzanne! I think because I have blue walls elsewhere it doesn’t feel too chilly in winter, at least for me :) I do love it so much more in the warmer months though because the focus really becomes the view outside!

  6. Hi Kelly

    Love your home, but have to admit to having a bit of a giggle to myself when I looked at the last but one photo, the one showing the sofa with the ‘vintage edition’ cushion on, it’s probably just my crazy brain, but the throw that you’ve placed under the cushions with the four tassels on, made me think there were two little girls wearing dresses and little boots, hiding behind the cushions! Let me know if you can see it too, I just laughed right out loud – crazy or what?

    Warm wishes

  7. What a beautiful room!! I love all of the light. My favorite part is the side transoms. I’ve never seen them used inside the house before and they are really wonderful!! I also made the same mistake with the TV and no doors on the cabinet to cover it. It honestly only bothers me when we have company over. Even so, I’m working on my husband to agree that they are necessary.
