Before & After: From Dining Room to Sunroom


I thought I would share a little "Before & After" today, since we just completed this photoshoot on Friday.  :)  And, because everyone loves a good "Before & After," here we go... This one is a good one!

Our clients wanted to transform their un-used and neglected dining space adjacent to their kitchen.  Since nearly every family meal was shared at the kitchen island (or the formal dining room), this room became a wasted space.  And, this modern family needed a comfortable spot to just sit and chill.  A place off of the busy kitchen to enjoy a cup of coffee and "watch the snow fall" (her words during our wintertime meeting, and such a lovely thought!).   Therefore, we set out to create a light and bright sunroom full of cozy upholstery, bleached wood finishes, and interesting texture.

To add architectural interest to this room, we had our contractor install 4" wood planks on the ceiling and we painted them a bright white.  The walls were painted Farrow & Ball "James White" (my favorite go-to cream paint), and we used an enormous flat weave wool rug to make the room feel bigger and brighter.  Our sofa is slipcovered in a beautiful flax cotton/linen which is washable and very family friendly.  We stayed away from the typical sunroom wicker furniture and brought in these modern woven side chairs.  The deep seats and bright white cushions make the room feel fresh and summer-y.  The coffee table has a simple shape and we LOVED the bleached wood herringbone top.  













We mixed in a variety of textures in monochromatic shades.  Cable knits live in harmony with bright white canvas (with tassels!).  It's a beautiful room that I think our clients will enjoy for many years to come.  :)  And, it proves that you can make a room anything you need it to be.  This dining room became a sunroom and it works.
