Gilpin sunroom re-vamp. Part 2


I made the drive to Tulsa the other weekend to attend a fab wedding and also to make some progress on the Gilpin Sunroom. We had such a good time and were able to make some big changes without big $$$- a total win, I would say :)

The room is not 100% done... but what room ever is? She wants to still change out some of the art on the gallery wall, get a plant for the bare corner and update the fan--but so far it's looking great! Eclectic and airy- exactly what we wanted.

Alot of the change came from space planning. We moved the furniture around to create a nuch better use of space. You can see from the before pictures that most of the furniture was along one wall. Moving the couch/bench to the middle of the room created a better place for conversation and still leaves room to access the deck.

Jake likes it!

What space doesn't need a gallery wall? We created one by mixing and matching frames of all sizes and colors.

Can you believe my friend MADE the sunburst mirror? It really is striking in person. The mirror portion did end up falling off and shattering... but that's neither here nor there. She can get another one on there really easily.

We covered a plain lamp shade this great blue and white fabric and she is going to use the extra to make a pillow cover for the couch (in the pics above, I just laid the fabric over an existing pillow to get an idea of what it would look like with the cognac color.) I love how the fabric works with the rug.

Still super jealous of her fab coffee table.

The curtains make ALL the difference in the world from the previous, dark ones.

Here is the view of the room from the kitchen. I think it's a very pretty view!
