In 2016 I painted our sunroom a darker color for a change of pace.

The wall color is Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore, and it gave me a good reason to use our lace curtains that were used as decor at our tent wedding reception. I love to create dark & light contrast, which seems to be working really well for me.

Before we had an old couch that we eventually sold.  Below is how it looked before I finally replaced it.

Here is a glimpse of what the room looked like prior to the dark wall paint update.  We’ve purchased new furniture since this photo was taken:

 The sunroom serves as a backdrop for many of my pictures. It faces West and brings in a lot of afternoon light (and heat). So it has a few design challenges. We plan to add trim, wooden beams, light fixtures and a few other embellishments.

This room was an “optional” upgrade when I built it. To add it on would have normally cost $16,000, but– I got this room for FREE. How? When subdivisions are being built, builders want to vary the style of houses so they don’t have the exact same color and style of home right in a row. My lot was the last vacant lot in “phase I”,  and it had a lot of restrictions in terms of the exterior colors, and what elevation (model) I chose. It seemed everyone here was building tan-colored Dunkirk models with green shutters. I just happened to be a willing buyer who was agreeable to a) a grey home….b) the Esquire model and c) I wanted a front porch. It was part of the negotiation process, and it worked in my favor :)

By only having a few furniture pieces, this gives us full access to the windows. During the holidays, our tree typically sits in the center of the room. I’ve experimented with budget curtains, but almost always choose window coverings from discount department stores so I can change them often.

Here is a glimpse of what it looked like when I first moved in. Amazing how time flies!

Before: Shortly after we moved in. The table and chairs were my first investment pieces. (I still have them). See my baby girl playing with her "Bob the Builder" hard hat on? That's my girl! :)

    I love this ‘site’; would like to know how you created the front porch ‘slate or rock’ patterned concrete. Would you share?
