bHome Fall Tour ~ The Sunroom

I love to be home in the Fall.

Why? Because as a former Florida Girl, I never experienced the true changing of the seasons.

It was always summer like. Well maybe a brisk day here and there in the winter.

I would have to make a special road trip to see Fall leaves.

However, now that I moved further north, the Fall has truly become my favorite season.

To be able to see the spectacular fall foliage from every view in my home

is such a beautiful thing!

Today, is Day Three of the “Why I Love to bHome in the Fall” Tour and I will be showing you

my Sunroom dressed for Fall.

There is also a wonderful Giveaway. A chance to win a $250 Amazon Gift Card.

Information of this giveaway will be at the end of this post.

Day 2 of the bHome Fall Tour ~ A Peek and a Giveaway

I am not sure now which season is my favorite as far as decorating is concerned.

I have so loved decorating my home for Christmas,

yet I am so enjoying decorating for Fall.

It just seems to be a bit more relaxing for me.

Adding pretties here and there of dried hydrangeas, pumpkins,

sheaves of wheat and the bounties of Fall in a pretty bowl.

Summer Touches in the Sunroom

I could not decide how I wanted to decorate the sunroom for summer.

Do I go coastal?

Do I adorn it with a summer garden theme?

Do I extend more of the blue and white into the sunroom?

Oh the decisions.

Less is More

Less is more . . . did I say that?

Well, while still fidgety recuperating . . . (and I must say that I am feeling somewhat better),

I roam the house. Being unable to do all that much, I just set my sights on what I can do

to start on my quest of “less is more”.

I started in the sunroom.

Oh wait, did I say less is more? I did buy this Spring trio of tulips, daffodils, and a hyacinth

and repotted it in a vintage McCoy flower pot. But it was a “replacement”

of flowers that were previously there.

Spring in the Sunroom

It was time to add Spring to the sunroom.

To change out the red accents and decor and bring in the light and fresh colors

of a soft blues and greens.

To add the signs of Spring that have been put away and patiently waiting to say,

Spring is here!

Repeating A Pattern

They say, that there should be one pattern in a room or area,

repeated 3 times.

They, as being the designers of classes that I took way back when.

I try to follow that rule, but it has lately gotten away from my decor.

The Sunroom Vote

Last week, I posted on my Facebook page asking what accent color you preferred

in the sunroom. Red or Blue. I received many, many answers and suggestions

on which color was preferred. I took your suggestions and opinions seriously.

So this is what I decided to do for now.

Drum roll please . . . . . .

Decorating A Porch For Winter

Decorating a porch for winter after the Holiday season can be a challenge.

This particular porch, out of the three that I have,

is definitely used and viewed from the house the most.

So it is important to me that it stay bright and cheery on those dreary winter days.

I am back and wearing new colors!

In my last post of the sunroom, I refreshed it with more red accents

using a vintage grain sack and accent pillows.

While I was refreshing the sunroom the other day, thoughts went through my mind

on how I can re-arrange the furniture.

The other day, I got up a 6 a.m., grabbed my first cup of coffee

and was just staring into the room……I set down the coffee cup and went to work.
