Hello Dear Readers!
Today I want to show you the re-designed sunroom at the Berry Patch House.
Re-designed? Yes . . . When the new furniture for the Great Room arrived,
we had to move the furniture that was in that room to the sunroom.
That meant a whole lot of shuffling going on!
So come on and see . . . THE RE-DESIGNED SUNROOM.
Previously, the room was basically filled with the outdoor furniture
that I had on the upper porch of our former home,
(you can see the chairs from the outdoor set in the background)
mixed with some pieces of wicker from our former sunroom.
So needless to say, it was a challenge.
The sofa (previously in the Master Bedroom in the former home)
was placed along the wall of windows. Placing it on the adjacent wall,
would have blocked the view from the Great Room.
Instead, I placed the pair of chairs on the sliding glass door side.
The space between the two chairs allows for an obstructed view into the sunroom and beyond.
We call this room the “where shall we put this” room as all the furniture that we do not
want to haul down the stairs to the walk-out basement lands in the “eclectic sunroom.”
This is the view when you first step into the sunroom. This sliding glass door
is the one (out of two) that remains open most of the time.
As I look around the room, I ask myself . . . where am I going to place some of these
pieces. Now I know that I will not be able to use some things in the new house
but my hubby warns me to be sure that getting rid of them won’t bring me
seller’s or charity remorse as some of these items do bring me joy.
But then again, lots of things do!!!…that’s my problem!
Many of these pieces in the sunroom were in the storage unit that we finally emptied
about 7 months after we moved into the rental. It held the furnishings and many boxes
that we stored right after we placed our house on the market.
This tea cart was previously on the upper back porch of our former home
and like many things its temporary home is in the sunroom.
I am pretty certain that this tea cart will morph into a “bar cart” complete with
Happy Hour beverages and my hubby’s fav “Happy Hour Beverage”
of an Arnold Palmer straight up with a twist!
Who knows how many times this room will dance to the furniture shuffle before we move.
When I finally figure out just where the sofa will land . . . then I can move on to
selecting a fabric to recover it. Most likely the two chairs will be in the future
Master Bedroom as they will blend nicely with the new bed that I have had for . . .
oh my goodness, for maybe 2 years now!!! It is disassembled and stored in one of the
bedrooms, we call, the prop room!!
This is it:
In the meantime, I am enjoying this room and the view.
Have a most beautiful day everyone!
I believe next week they will be digging the foundation and hopefully
not finding any more huge boulders!
