My Favourite Spot In The Farmhouse: Our Sunroom Reveal!


Immediately I’ve for you my favourite little one/room in the home – not as a result of it’s the BEST room (it positive may be) however as a result of this room has introduced me nearly zero stress (comparatively). It was fairly darn simple to design/adorn, I had a transparent imaginative and prescient, and has supplied me years of happiness, working in right here. She is simply shiny, completely happy, energetic, and comfy. So with a lot delight, I might like to introduce you to my favourite little one – our sunroom/formal eating room/my writing studio.

P.S. In case you are simply touchdown right here for the primary time (welcome!) don’t neglect to learn in regards to 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 exhausting work by so many gifted folks and that’s extra of a comparability than a reality. An enormous because of the ARCIFORM staff – Anne, Stephyn (that tile design/order was NOT simple to calculate), Adam Jamie (our constructing leads), and Degree Airplane Tile & Stone (our tile installers).

We, in fact, made a very enjoyable YouTube video so please go watch and subscribe!! I simply love making them. Right here’s slightly teaser if you happen to wanna get a style (simply look forward to the quick 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, degree of colour, and sample as our terrace in LA that I beloved so very, very a lot. And y’all, it does. It simply SINGS. All my favourite mates got here to play right here – the blue and white Victorian tile (please be aware the border within the different pictures), farmhouse desk, modern chairs, vintage-inspired lighting, and simply tons of blue, inexperienced, wooden, gold, and all day lengthy gorgeous pure mild.

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

The colour palette works so nicely – the inexperienced of these unimaginable Athena Calderone for Crate and Barrel chairs labored so nicely with the blue of the Pratt + Larson tile (and someway 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 had been all the things that I needed them to be (and they’re so snug).

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 would like). The Velux skylights in right here create such tender mild all day (they’re north-facing which tends to be the most effective softest mild). 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 downside in each rooms instantly. These have mild 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 put up (go right here) however I need to be certain it feels correctly worshipped on its large reveal put up. 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 because of Stephyn from ARCIFORM for serving to determine how a lot of every tile we wanted (I mainly did the sample with paper, however as you already know I’m not good with “particulars” or “counting” and there was a LOT of particulars and counting – see under). Degree Airplane had 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 may actually customise all the things – the size of the wire, the end, and naturally the shade (I LOVE this deco shade and have without end). Additionally you probably have a faulted ceiling the chain (versus a stem) makes it nonetheless fall appropriately.

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 area. 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 tender curve on the again was additionally what I needed (to offset the squares) and the velvet feels so heat, snug, 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 Baltimore is so lovely and timeless, top quality with some additional particulars that take it subsequent degree. It was exhausting 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 can be. Plus it wanted to be shallow – not more than 19″ deep. This holds our printer and all my samples for this home for simple entry. Please be aware the legs!!! I like (and regarded for) a darker wooden tone so it pulled you over there, grounded that wall, and didn’t simply match the desk and chairs.

Picket Chook (classic)

My vintage wood fowl got here inside and I like it much more in right here. It did alarm folks on the entrance porch so possibly it wanted a context that was extra whimsical? It seems enjoyable in right here (sorry I don’t assume we bought one other shot of it). The opposite crops 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 indicate you what it might seem like if I used to be having an off-the-cuff (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 superb with just a few pops of colour (navy, sage-y inexperienced, and mauve) and a few contemporary flowers (these are from my backyard). Extremely advocate utilizing a candlestick colour in your colour palette so as to add just a bit additional one thing particular:)

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

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

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