Sunroom Updates – Stars of the Show and Supporting Characters

See how I painted mid century furniture and turned it into a colorful, media cabinet. This sunroom was decorated using a mix of new and vintage finds.

Love this blue painted mid century furniture - the perfect media cabinet and the vintage map is such a fun piece of wall art behind the tv

Slow and steady wins the race.

I’m not a wham, bam thank you ma’am kind of decorator.

I would much rather do things little by little – waiting for the perfect pieces.

Remember the mid century console I found at an estate sale a few years ago. I painted it a fun shade of blue and there it sat. The belle of the ball. Waiting for some equally amazing furniture and accessories to keep it company.

Once my new sofa (don’t miss my tips for buying a sofa online) was in place, my search for the perfect rug began.

Love this modern gray sofa and rug

I love the pattern and texture of the Sierra Paddle Rug and prefer using natural materials and love that this is a blend of wool and cotton.

Love this graphic black and white paddle rug

The rug and sofa are the supporting characters to the blue console table and vintage map which remain the stars 0f the show.

Love that giant pull down vintage school map as art behind the tv

I added in a little more blue with the pouf and pillow – I even painted the ceiling blue!

Love the huge windows in this beautiful sunroom with gray sofa and textured black and white rug

I plan to paint the room white (but keep the blue ceiling).

Are you a one stop shopping kind of decorator or slowly over time?

  1. I wish I could be a one stop shopping kinda gal and find all on my list at once to satisfy my less than patient decorating nature, but that never happens!

    I love your sunroom … always have! Your new treasures in here are the crowning touch (especially your blue ceiling). Awesome rug, too … the contrast of your fun blue console table with it is perfect!

  2. I have missed out a lot on your blog Kelly, but love the changes in your sun room especially that sofa and rug! I ordered the same rug a couple of years ago, but got the wrong color and return was a disaster so I opted not to get it in the end! loved how it looked in your space!
