A New Shade for the Sunroom

Yay, one project down ... 1,000 to go!  

Sometimes, I feel like "on a whim" should be my middle name!  As I was staring at our little sunroom last week, I decided that I wanted it to feel a bit "coastal-y" and serene ... that's when I turned to Sherwin Williams' Palladian Blue (and our tall, scary ladder) and got to work!  


And, when it was time to put the room back together, more changes were in order ...

I brought in our seagrass rug from the sitting room as the room's anchor.  Then, in came the "wicker-y" love seat from our deck ... I like the natural texture it adds, and how it ties in with the bamboo shades.


I then brought in a pair of coastal prints from Home Goods.




When I spied this cute "Shore Thing" pillow at Home Goods, I knew it would be a fun addition ... I really like it paired with the blue/white stripe pillow (cover from Pottery Barn).


Since the new wall art has silver frames, I added in silver candle holders on our coffee table to pull it all together ...


along with this silver-framed nautical print (which is magically *floating,* thanks to Command Hooks and fishing line).



Back on the coffee table, a sweet orchid (from Target) adds a bit of softness ...



Of course, with this being our little "coastal" spot to relax, a few issues of "Coastal Magazine" are a must,


and this little faux furry foot stool (try saying that fast 5 times!) seemed to be the perfect spot to display them and to pull around and rest your feet on while you enjoy them.


We plan on adding a new chandie in here, too ... just waiting for the one I want to go on sale!


I'll also add a few more coastal accents in here, I'm sure ... for now, onto the next project! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This, That and Then Some

Greetings, friends!

You know when you finally feel a bit "settled" in your new home?  Well, of course it's *then* that you decide that you're anything BUT settled!

Sooo, I'm bringing in a bit of wall color in here:


And, having lots of fun (not) staining our deck:


Let's not forget trying out new arrangements here and there:


Annnnd, getting ready to trade out the bookcase here in our sitting room for a fun find from Craiglist!


Hopefully, I'll have a few *blog-worthy* posts to share soon!

Thanks for stopping by,
