My Favorite Spot In The Farmhouse: Our Sunroom Reveal!

Right now I’ve for you my favourite youngster/room in the home – not as a result of it’s the BEST room (it positive is likely to be) however as a result of this room has introduced me virtually zero stress (comparatively). It was fairly darn simple to design/embellish, I had a transparent imaginative and prescient, and has offered me years of happiness, working in right here. She is simply vivid, completely happy, energetic, and cozy. So with a lot pleasure, I might like to introduce you to my favourite youngster – our sunroom/formal eating room/my writing studio.

P.S. If you’re simply touchdown right here for the primary time (welcome!) don’t overlook to learn concerning the course of posts about how we designed the mosaic tile and border, the set up, and constructed this room from the bottom up. Whereas I say it was “simple,” it was nonetheless a lot laborious work by so many gifted folks and that’s extra of a comparability than a truth. An enormous due to the ARCIFORM crew – Anne, Stephyn (that tile design/order was NOT simple to calculate), Adam Jamie (our constructing leads), and Stage Airplane Tile & Stone (our tile installers).

We, in fact, made a extremely enjoyable YouTube video so please go watch and subscribe!! I simply love making them. Right here’s a bit of teaser for those who wanna get a style (simply look forward to the brief advert to run:)):

Eating Desk | Eating Chair | Tile | Pendant | Home windows | Skylight | Wall Paint

My design for this room was clear from day ONE – this room was for my very own private inspiration and every day JOY whereas working from dwelling. I needed to create an indoor room that had the identical feeling, stage of colour, and sample as our terrace in LA that I liked so very, very a lot. And y’all, it does. It simply SINGS. All my favourite buddies got here to play right here – the blue and white Victorian tile (please be aware the border within the different photographs), farmhouse desk, up to date chairs, vintage-inspired lighting, and simply tons of blue, inexperienced, wooden, gold, and all day lengthy gorgeous pure gentle.

We determined to fashion it out for a cocktail party (with dinnerware I already had) since you’ve seen snippets of this room sufficient that I needed to point out it off with a gown on it 🙂

The colour palette works so effectively – the inexperienced of those unimaginable Athena Calderone for Crate and Barrel chairs labored so effectively with the blue of the Pratt + Larson tile (and by some means I discovered that excellent lampshade at a thrift retailer!). And whereas the wooden of the chairs is technically completely different than the desk they’ve comparable undertones and are each matte (not shiny) and work completely. The second the chairs got here on this room they have been the whole lot that I needed them to be (and they’re so comfy).

Y’all these home windows are INCREDIBLE. As I wrote about on Friday, we custom-designed and made them with Sierra Pacific to particularly marry the diamond sample of the second-floor home windows with the extra conventional/fashionable grid of the primary ground. They’re simply so lovely (and sure, some open if we wish). The Velux skylights in right here create such delicate gentle all day (they’re north-facing which tends to be the very best softest gentle). We didn’t have them in for some time and the lounge and sunroom didn’t have the sunshine we needed. So as soon as we put them in it solved this drawback in each rooms instantly. These have gentle filtering shades and might open for venting, too. Even within the rain it’s such a dream to be on this completely happy room and listen to it on the skylights 🙂

The tile has its personal submit (go right here) however I need to ensure it feels correctly worshipped on its huge reveal submit. We designed the colour with Pratt + Larson, closely impressed by so many Victorian mosaic patterns that I’ve been pinning for years. Once more, an enormous due to Stephyn from ARCIFORM for serving to work out how a lot of every tile we would have liked (I mainly did the sample with paper, however as you understand I’m not good with “particulars” or “counting” and there was a LOT of particulars and counting – see beneath). Stage Airplane have been our installers and so they did a wonderful job and actually cared about it being excellent which issues with a sample like this.

The lighting is the Rose Metropolis assortment from Rejuvenation in an unlacquered brass that may patina with age. I like this fixture as a result of (like all of Rejuvenations lights) you’ll be able to actually customise the whole lot – the size of the wire, the end, and naturally the shade (I LOVE this deco shade and have eternally). Additionally when you have a faulted ceiling the chain (versus a stem) makes it nonetheless fall accurately.

The desk was custom-sized from a design by Elsie Inexperienced – a small furnishings maker (with reclaimed materials) within the Bay Space. It’s extremely excellent for this house. We would have liked slender (however not too slender) and actually lengthy (120″), and I needed curved ends and a few spherical legs to offset all of the squares from the tile and the home windows. The chairs couldn’t be extra excellent with the desk – the delicate curve on the again was additionally what I needed (to offset the squares) and the velvet feels so heat, comfy, and earthy in a room with no different textiles. This room wanted cloth (as most rooms do) and never simply wooden chairs with wooden desk and wooden credenza.

Credenza | Chair (classic) | Lamp | Artwork (classic) | Black Tray | Wrapped Stone | Bookend Sculpture | Radio | Outlet Cowl

This piece by Crump & Kwash out of DC is so lovely and timeless, top quality with some further particulars that take it subsequent stage. It was laborious for me to search out the precise piece in right here – there are one million nice credenzas on the market, however I didn’t need it to go too “TV stand” and couldn’t be as excessive as a buffet could be. Plus it wanted to be shallow – not more than 19″ deep. This holds our printer and all my samples for this home for straightforward entry. Please be aware the legs!!! I like (and seemed for) a darker wooden tone so it pulled you over there, grounded that wall, and didn’t simply match the desk and chairs.

Wood Hen (classic)

My vintage picket chicken got here inside and I adore it much more in right here. It did alarm folks on the entrance porch so perhaps it wanted a context that was extra whimsical? It seems to be enjoyable in right here (sorry I don’t assume we received one other shot of it). The opposite vegetation all got here from both Arium Botanicals or Drake’s 7 Dees on Scholls Ferry. Each have EXCELLENT indoor plant choice.

Bowl | App Plate | Dinner Plate | Serviette | Placemat | Flatware | Water Glasses | Coup Glasses (comparable) | Small Candlestick Holder | Giant Ring Candlestick Holder | Inexperienced Candlesticks | Vase Pitcher (comparable)

I needed to point out you what it will seem like if I used to be having an informal (however barely elevated) ceremonial dinner. These are all issues I already had (like these white, light-weight Goal plates and placemats I like SO MUCH). It’s wonderful with a number of pops of colour (navy, sage-y inexperienced, and mauve) and a few contemporary flowers (these are from my backyard). Extremely suggest utilizing a candlestick colour in your colour palette so as to add just a bit further one thing particular:)

Fluted Planter (now not out there) | Tall White Planter (domestically sourced) | Terracotta Planter

It’s such an ideal room to spend time in and I’m endlessly grateful that we might and determined so as to add it onto the home. This room undoubtedly makes a case for going for daring sample in the proper locations:) xx

Oh and don’t overlook to look at that YouTube video!
