Believe it or not, the sunroom at The House on High Street has been an interior work in progress. Scott and I decided to have the sunroom (and upstairs balcony) constructed prior to moving into the house. However, most of the interior decorating has accumulated over time.
In case you forgot, this is what our sunroom looked like before renovation.
Here is a picture of the back of the house before we started renovation. Do you see that ugly addition?
Here is what it looks like, today. Now, we can call it a sunroom.
As you can see, it is a lot brighter on the inside!
Anyway, it took a while to gather the interiors and create this traditional look. The first item purchased was a classic looking rounded banquette. Scott and I found this beauty in the clearance section of a high-end furniture store. I negotiated an even better price than it was listed for. Winner!
It worked great in the corner of the sunroom.
I also snagged those skirted chairs from Thomasville. They were floor samples, so I got them for a great deal, as well. Here is something similar. (Actually less than what we paid from Thomasville.)
That table was a hand-me-down from my parents. It’s actually an oak table that I painted ivory and used a bronze stain on the edges. Here is a close-up…
For the tile, I wanted something that would resemble an authentic Saltillo tile. (Paired with a taupe colored grout.)
The fixtures and ceiling fan were installed right before we moved into the house, as well.
Once Banana came into the picture, we needed extra storage space on the first level. I grabbed this storage bench to hold her shoes, hats, books, and extra diapers.
Then, we added an area rug so she could play and crawl on the floor.
Last, but not least, I added candles in the windows along with pretty lace curtains.
And, there you have it. A Traditional Sunroom!
**The “rendezvous” arm chair and ottoman were purchased from Thomasville. The marble & iron end table, along with the copper vase, were both snagged at an auction. ; )
