Hi friends! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Welcome to another update on "the cottage project". Now that the construction is finished and my client has passed all inspections, we can move forward more quickly! It's all very exciting. She has been waiting so long to make this house her home.
Today I'm sharing the design plan for her sun room. When we started there was wood trim and a wood toned ceiling. I know, I know, you have a strong opinion about whether wood should ever be painted, but lucky for me my client and I are in the same camp. We had it all painted. The wall color is the same in both pictures--all that was changed when this was taken was the trim. Notice how now, what you really see are the beautiful trees and not all of the orange trim. It was amazing how painting the wood trim brought in the natural surroundings. Eventually, the walls were painted the same white as the trim.
We added custom woven shades to the corner windows, and drapes are going up over the slider.
I'm recommending this woven, flat weave rug. It's a great neutral scheme and could work anywhere in her home. The pattern makes it durable and it's fully reversible.
We are recovering her current sofa in a soft, light gray, outdoor velvet.
I used the apple green velvet on my living room sofa and Sheri was a fan of the look and durability. She has two small dogs and grandchildren so this sofa needs to perform well!
We even poured red juice over the light gray sample. The juice just rolled right off!
One more 'before' shot of the sun room:
Here is the design board. I can't wait to see it come to life.
What do you think?
Is this a room you'd like to relax in while gazing at the river?
