Summer Sunroom

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope that your week is off to a great start and that you are staying cool in these warm summer temperatures. Today, I am excited to share my summer sunroom with you. This room is my happy place where I start my day watching birds and sipping tea. In fact, if I am not careful time will slowly slip by!  This room is part of a large space that also houses the kitchen and breakfast areas. I love this space because it has high cathedral ceilings and lots of windows. When we remodeled the kitchen, the sunroom received a little makeover. A pony wall separated this space from the breakfast area. It drove me nuts! Mr. Bleu told me, if I wanted to get rid of the wall, now was the time. I quickly took him up on his offer!

Peonies and a Majolica plate create a simple vignette on the coffee table in front of the toile love seat.


It had rained shortly before I photographed this room. All at once, the sun shined brightly casting brilliant rays of light into the room.

An orchid, blue and white pieces, and more Majolica create this side table vignette. This room is filled with things that I love and have collected over time.

The little antique pink footstool was an estate sale find. It had such a pretty needle point floral pattern on it, but it had a horrible black stain. I didn’t pay much for the piece and planned on recovering it. However, once I got it home, I really hesitated recovering it. Instead, with nothing to lose, I decided to try some upholstery cleaner I had on hand. Guess what? It worked!!! I was able to save that beautiful floral needle point pattern!





My favorite Charles Faudree red toile chair found its way into the room. After all, it pairs well with the Charles Faudree love seat that I bought at a previous estate sale. You can never have too many chairs!!!

The pony wall once stood behind where the red chair stands. In an upcoming post, I’ll reveal more details when I show you the breakfast area and butler’s pantry.

Thank you for your visits and the gracious comments you post!  I hope that you have a blessed and wonderful day, dear friends!!!

  1. Shannon, this sunroom makes my heart sing. It is stunning! I love the toile sofa, it is perfect in your sunny space. The furniture and chairs are spot on for that French style. The needlepoint stool was a great find, so glad you could clean the spot. Your vignettes with the majolica are so pretty. Kudos for a beautiful room my sweet friend. How I would love to join you for a cup of tea!

  2. Penny at Enjoying The Simple Things

    I love everything about your sunroom! All of the wonderful windows, the toile everything!

  3. I agree with Penny and Pam. I love it all and I just gasp every time I see your wonderful Charles Faudree red toile chair. Goodness, it makes my heart happy! Your room is perfect and you did a marvelous job with every detail!

    I love it all! The dark windows with white trim really set off your beautiful furnishings?

  5. What a lovely room- I now I’d be in there frequently! Your arrangement and furniture pieces look so inviting. I like all your accents especially your favorite collected pieces. The matching upholstered chairs are identical (except the fabric) to one I had from Ethan Allen that is at my mother’s now. It has held up remarkably well and I hope to have it back in my home some day.

    • Liz, you are spot on about the chairs…they are Ethan Allen. My mother in law gave them to me, and I had them recovered. They are really nice chairs and quite comfy. Thank you for your sweet comment!!!

    Hello, Shannon. I’m thrilled I ran across your posts! Your home is lovely and it’s certainly obvious that you put much thought and love into your decor:) I’d like to ask you about your kitchen/sunroom floor. I really would like the old world look of stone or brick, but comfort certainly is important. I just can’t tell from your pictures if your floors are tiles, pavers, or faux. Would you mind sharing?

    • Hi Sandy, I am so happy that you found my blog and stopped by for a visit! Thank you so much for your sweet words. The kitchen floor is actually a ceramic tile, but you would never know it. It is a non slip tile that looks and feels just like brick. It is made by Marazzi USA, and the pattern is Urban District Downtown. I really wanted something timeless, and this fits the bill. Both my husband and I have been really happy with the flooring. Thanks again for your kind comments, and I hope that you are having a wonderful week.

  21. I really admire how you put such beautiful pieces together I am in the process of redoing a room off my kitchen and the love seat is just what I am looking for. Could you let me know where to find it? Thanks
