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 . . . . . .
Red for Winter and blue for Spring and Summer was the suggestion from many.
So that is what I did and when I was planning on returning the red into the sunroom,
I made it a point not to use the same pillows and added new accessories,
like this gorgeous red transferware pitcher.
I have always adored this pitcher that belonged to my friend Martha
who will be moving soon to be closer to her family.
She is selling many of her exquisite antiques as she will be downsizing.
I asked Martha if she was considering selling the pitcher, and she said yes!
I knew at it would be perfect in the sunroom.
Do you recognize the pillows? The red and white toile pillow was in the Great Room.
The red and green paisley pillows have been the Media Room for years.
An ironstone bowl is filled with dried lavender roses and a linen candle.
When I was shopping the house for pillows, it occurred to me
that I had these red and green paisley pillows in the Media room
that were actually napkins from Pottery Barn made into pillows.
The colors work very nicely in the sunroom.
I also searched for more red accessories.
The red olive jar that I purchased many years ago from a Southern Living Home Party,
(do you remember those? . . . I went to many!)
also came up from the Media Room.
Vintage Charles Dickens books flank the olive jar.
The red iron scroll lamp returns to the sunroom.
For another change in the room, I changed the container for the plant
from the olive bucket to the Red Wing Crock.
So what do you think?
Red for the Winter months . . . .
and blue for the Spring and Summer? Sounds like a plan!!
Speaking of plans . . . I hope you are planning on having a most beautiful day.
It will be a bit dreary here . . . a wintery mix as they say.
However, I will be planning to do some more refreshing and re-styling.
Come back and see where all of the blue accessories from the sunroom landed!
