First Floor Sunroom
The soul of this sun-drenched sanctuary is the gray, striated doric columns that embrace the windows, the etched-glass walls and the doors. The outside is now the inside and the overall tone sets a scene for casual conversations, quiet reflections and a way to simply reconnect with nature. Vibrant, impressionistic artwork serves as the design inspiration, and the round table showcases an infusion of color. The complementary-colored stools offer a spot for a light repast. The brightly painted armoire displays accessories and provides game storage. The fireplace, albeit unusual for a sunroom, is re-tuned with a finish similar to the pillars to make it a natural component of this space’s architecture and vibe. The upholstered seating near the fireplace allows for relaxation and is a good place to refocus. This cozy niche is anchored by a soft rug that contrasts with the beautiful tile floor. A visit to this space is an opportunity to learn ways to carry artistic inspiration throughout a room, and to reuse and re-purpose items in one’s own home.
