Sun Room Inspiration

[Unknown]

There's something about the space in this photo, though simple and sparse, that is so inviting. It's like the chaise chairs are just beckoning you to curl up and enjoy the view of the outside. It's bright and warm and comfortable; all of which are exactly what I'm looking for.

Here are a few photos I've pulled, of some inspiring sun rooms. Each is quite different, but they all have something about them that I love, and would like to incorporate into my space.

I love the natural elements to this space. This is the rug that will be put in the room. It really brings a lot of warmth. The room also has the same doors as shown in this photo. I love the wicker and especially that gorgeous white chair with the natural pillow.

This is a gorgeously simple room. I love the cast iron plant stand and the pails of flowers. It's really pretty. (Not to mention those chairs!)

Layout wise, this room is the closest to mine. It's roughly the same size as the space I'm working with. This would be the view if you were to walk in from our back deck, through the french doors. I would place my cast iron day bed in the same spot as the small couch area in this photo (that grain sack pillow is amazing!). Where the stools are to the left, is where I would like to have two smaller wing chairs. They would most likely fit more in the left hand corner, similar to how this chair is on the right of this photo. In my space, the right of this photo would be all open, and would look into my kitchen and stairway to the basement, so a chair this big may be too much for a space that should remain open. Possibly a nice little metal chair with some pillows? I love the windows and fixtures in this space, they're stunning!

I just love the natural fabrics used in that bench seat. They're so inviting. The same will be used on my day bed.

This space was more just something pretty to look at. It's not as functional as I would like it, and it's a bit too pretty for how lived in this space is going to be. But it's still beautiful!

  3. How fun to have such a great space to makeover. Lucky you! Your ideas sound wonderful. I especially like the idea of the fabrics, sturdy, casual, natural. The inspiration photos are pretty. Our oldest son, 14, looked over my shoulder and loved the pair of chaises. He keeps saying he wants a bed instead of a couch in the family room! Teenagers. He noticed that the chaises looked as comfortable as a bed but were still seating.
