I Went Plum Crazy for Early Fall in the Sunroom

When I was traveling with my hubby in California,

I had the opportunity to visit a couple of Pottery Barn stores

while he was attending a conference. It was then when I came across their great sale

and as a result of this, I went plum crazy for early Fall in the Sunroom.

Literally crazy for the pillow covers in the shades of plum.

Let the Summer Decorating Begin

Where has Spring gone?

The older I get, the more I tend to savor each season,

as they go by so quickly. So in a blink of an eye, Spring has passed us by

and Summer is here.

Therefore . . . . Let the summer decorating begin.

For some reason I always start in the sunroom.

French Door Love. What Were We Thinking?

As my hubby and I pour over house plans with one in particular,

we discovered that we definitely are not only downsizing in square footage,

but downsizing in the amount of windows and french doors.

We have French door love. What were we thinking?

Yes, what were we thinking when we installed 7 sets of french doors in this house.

We were thinking that they bring in so much light and are just beautiful.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring

I have been refreshing  my rooms from Winter decor to Spring decor.

That is always a fun thing to do as we all love Spring.

I have already Refreshed the Great Room for Spring.

The Sunroom Refreshed for Spring was next on the list.

I had a couple of inspiration pieces to work with.

When I received my new issue of Country Living, it was a no brainer to

go back to HomeGoods and get those pillows that I have had my eye on

and hoping they were still there.

A Decorating Blooper

We all make decorating mistakes … mishaps …

that,  “why did I do that?”  kind of thing.

Well, the other day I featured my little sunroom makeover.

I happened to be looking at the photos in the post and gasped.

A Decorating Blooper ! …..  you know,  just like those shows that feature Bloopers and Blunders?

Well I certainly blooped and blundered.

First, I will you  show you how I corrected my Blooper.

A New Year’s Blue and White Sunroom

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful start to 2017!

My start to the New Year in my home is a New Year’s Blue and White Sunroom.

Actually I should say accents of blue and white,

as the wicker is a celery green in color.

But what goes well with green? …. blue!
