Sure, the open pool deck or the outdoor living area look great right now. But soon the warmth of summer is bound to give way to colder weather and a desire to stay indoors. This is of course an annual affair and in some parts of the world, even summer can get pretty dark, dreary and even rainy! With that mind, a sunroom definitely feels like a practical addition that allows you to take in all the warmth without having to deal with the vagaries of weather. Sunrooms bring along with them a plethora of advantages and come in a variety of styles ranging from contemporary and Scandinavian to rustic and Mediterranean. But as an avid reader of Decoist, you knew that!
If you have noticed it already, then wooden decor is on a grand comeback in recent months. It does not matter if your living room has a contemporary vibe or a cozy rustic appeal; decor in wood seems to find space in almost every living room these days. It is the silhouette of the decor that determines its style and an all-wood entertainment center with a cool TV stand, additional wooden cabinets and wall-mounted floating shelves can feel as much at home in a modern living room as it does in one with traditional flair. Just browse through the classic and yet timeless choices from the likes of ercol or Hartmann and you will not be disappointed.
From a simple, low shelf in the living room that can hold much more than the TV to modular units that can adapt to your varying needs, your choice here is dictated by your living room size, style and color scheme.
Today we take a look at a completely different aspect of sunroom design, which moves away from style and focuses on a love for all things green. Indoor plants are far easier to maintain than you think and with air plants currently a part of hot decorating trends, it makes plenty of sense to give your sunroom a green upgrade. From orchids and passion flower to the resilient ZZ plant and awesome succulents, there is plenty of variety to choose from. Then there is the matter of countless displays you can try out.
A living room with dark beige walls and a creamy sofa has all the attributes of a modern-day sanctuary that feels safe, soft and traditional.
Not sure if you can handle an overload of indoor plants? Everything ranging from seat cushions with tropical motif to wallpaper featuring large leafy patterns can be used to usher in greenery in a unique fashion. Then there is the added benefit of large glass windows bringing in the green landscape outside and making it a part of the sunroom. Couple this with a few smaller indoor plants and get started!
