From my cozy sunroom corner, I see my children playing in the back yard. They jump on the trampoline – water sprinkler running underneath – good old fashioned fun. From my spot, I look out through my home’s front door to a vibrant pink crepe myrtle. My babe plays on the rug nearby pulling blocks and baskets onto the floor. And if I look away for a moment, trying to eat the begonia leaves.
I have been dreaming of this space, or what it could become for sometime. I’ve been collecting cushions, rugs and ideas. Going on crazy fun shopping trips with friends and looking for bargains at the tip shop!
I’ve repurposed my cane chair – a gift from my mother when I was a girl – which I spray painted gold during my wild teenage years *wink*. Brought in some plants from where they had been forgotten after we moved. And brought it all together, unsure whether it would work, but thankfully it feels right, a lovely collection of colour and texture.
The children have happily taken to the space. Playing with puzzles, blocks or riding the gorgeous rocking horse discovered at the tip shop.
And at night it becomes another place entirely. A magical space with coloured lanterns and fairy lights. A lovely spot to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, or perhaps later a wine with friends.
Oh and I almost forgot, the view directly below my window, is the start of our new garden. A whimsical kinda ode to Alice in Wonderland.
It looks like a beautiful spot. I am happy you have a space that makes you feel good 🙂
I adore your sun room. It has an eclectic feel to it and a lovely dual family space.
What a beautiful sun room, I don’t think I would ever want to leave 🙂
[…] seeing Autumn bulbs poke through the ground. And in between other moments I found time to sit in my sun room sewing. I enjoy the slowness of hand sewing and the quiet it brings. And so I sat and created a […]
What a beautiful space you’ve created!
Thanks so much Erin. I really didn’t know what to do with it at first, but now I love it 🙂
