...and just like the rest of our new home - it is still very much a work in progress. My husband wanted a more "neutral" palette in this room - and trust me - when I see people who use all the lights and neutrals - I truly am drawn to them but when it comes to my own home - I'm a color girl - I can't help it. So needless to say - I'm having trouble with this room - it is just burlap and navy - aaaaahhhh where is my red??? Don't worry - I think you will see it soon. But till then - we will browse around a bit.
Excuse the absense of presents - they have already been opened ;-( I miss them already. Another project - paint coffee table and end tables - they were hand - me - downs from my sweet mamaw, Ruby. But they don't quite fit the way they are.
In the other corner - a rustic ladder I had - a great place for my plethora of magazines - along with every drawer and basket in the house ;-)
My husband was also quite sure he wanted a metal ceiling and I must admit - I was leery - afraid it was going to be toooooo shiny. I felt more comfortable with some that had already rusted a bit - but oh no - he wouldn't go for that. Anyway, I have ended up liking it a lot and so does everyone that sees it. I must give him credit for this one. (Ignore the plastic on the clock - my ladder is not tall enough to get up there - I can't believe I haven't taken care of this yet - oh well, someday)
I love my lamps I found - bought one 1/2 price and got the other for FREE - just had to tighten it up a tad. The burlap shades are my favorite. That cool wooden ball came from the peddlers mall - I loved it from the moment I spotted it.
A couple of navy and white chairs flank each side of the entrance into the kitchen. You'll also notice that the walls are simply made of 4X8 sheets of an exterior grade material that has a rustic barn wood look.
My Christmas tree in this room was full of some natural elements as well as a little sparkle. Again, I stayed with more of a neutral palette of navy, browns, creams, silver and white.
Pods, nests, snowflakes, birds, netting, burlap ribbon and traditional Christmas balls all found a home on the tree.
You can see we are gonna have a great view out the back when we get the yard all fixed up in the spring. Right now, I'm waiting on the first snowfall - I think it will be so peaceful and relaxing sitting in this room.
And you remember from the previous post - you enter the sun room through our barn doors - sorry I just love talking about them. Now, only if I could get them painted.
Hope your Christmas was happy and that you made great memories with your family and friends. Wishing you continued blessings for a happy new year!
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. - Hamilton Wright Mabie
