I love sunrooms!

When we moved to Charlotte in 2004 our first house had a sunroom. I painted it a fern green and decorated it with wicker Pottery Barn chairs with ottomans. I love to sip tea in that room or read a book. There was a fireplace in there too so on not so warm days you could take the chill off by having a fire in the fireplace. Then we moved to the townhouse 2 yrs. ago and there wasn't a sunroom. I really missed a nice intimate quiet room to go to. Now we have moved back to a house and while it isn't called a sunroom (the previous owners called it a formal living room) I call it my sunroom! I have the Pottery Barn wicker chairs and ottomans in there, my conservatory, a sofa table from Maine in the front window and I've put pictures in there that remind me of the outdoors. I came across the sunroom picture above on HGTV.com. I love it. Maybe I can add some things like they have in the picture to make it cozier in my sunroom!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!

Hi SHerri
I love a sunroom too! I am thinking of turning my office/studio back into a sunroom/sitting room again. Hope you have nice weekend too. Have you been to Amelie's Bakery? We should go there sometime!
Hugs, Rhondi

I love sunrooms too Sherri and your furniture certainly lends itself to a beautiful sunroom. I'm crazy about Pottery Barn.

I have never had a sun room, but always wanted one. The one from PB looks perfect!

That IS a pretty picture. I'm helping my mom with her sunroom in a couple of weeks. Tons of windows -- what I wouldn't give!

I'd love to have a sunroom here in Hawaii with big open windows and a ceiling fan, please.

I have a sunroom and just love it! I put a day bed in there and cut down the legs a bit so people out on the road couldn't see me laying there soaking up the sun!

I love the theme of your sunroom. It's bright and refreshing to the eyes. I'm sure you would have a nice and relaxing time whenever you are in your sunroom!

I also love sunrooms! We have a small one at home. but we make it a point to keep it clean and beautiful. The best thing about it is the wide garden view outside which is just so relaxing.

One of the good benefits of having a sunroom is the amount of light that it can bring to your home, which indirectly save you from consuming great amount of energy. And aside from that, it also allows you to appreciate the view of nature from the comforts of your home.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
