This is a charming sunroom on an historic house that needed some uplifting. The client is crazy about her family heirloom furniture, so we went with a design that incorporated the legacy of her antiques and the twist of a classic coastal.
Another important design need was to create a room for entertaining. This family loves to have friends over on a weekly basis. With the way the room was before, they felt awkward when friends would come because there was not enough seating the right layout for conversations and such. Also, the bar was an important aspect so I wanted to place it in a central location.
In the attic, we found the original blueprints and I was determined to use them somehow. Her grandmother’s Victorian rocking chair was in the attic and we decided to put a new fabric on it.
The room had dated Berber carpet… but it was beyond budget to replace so I recommended a custom shaped sisal. Notice the after pictures with the framed blueprints, the rug, the upholstered wing chairs, and the window treatments. The ceiling fan was a typical white fan before that we changed out with a British Tropics style fan. The ceiling, which was a typical white, we painted blue like the southern porches.
We decide on a new floor plan that used her existing furniture in a way that made entertaining enjoyable.
