Decorating ideas for Sunroom

I love my sunroom even though it is really small (9x11). At one time this space was a deck off a bedroom, but the owner before me enclosed the deck by installing walls, windows, and a roof. It is a small space that is not insulated, but the enclosure makes it nice and it has a view of the garden. A change to the decorating will make this space perfect and here is my inspiration sunroom. I designed the home set at

I thought I would redecorate this space by changing the color on the walls to light gray with white enamel trim on the baseboards and window ledges. Then buy room darkening blackout shades or drapes from The shades or drapes need not be expensive, but they do have to be able to block the sun because this room gets the southern sun in the afternoon.

The blackout window treatments will benefit this room by blocking the sun and they will also add insulation.

Another way to redecorate this space is to add a focal point. I think I will create a focal area or feature in this space by adding a love seat in a neutral color; beige or tan. The sofa will be up against the side window. This will enable front and opposite window views of the garden.

Adding assorted throw pillows to the sofa will sure make it look inviting. For this room, I have selected the accent color blue. I shopped at and found pattern throw pillows and other blue wall accents, plus color coordinating Mosaic print table runner for the coffee table.

The interior redesign of this room is coming together but before I can check off that it is completed, we have to address the flooring. The floor covering has to be updated, right now it is a laminated peel and stick green print tile over the wood deck. I do not like it and would prefer Berber carpet with padding because it will add insulation to the sunroom and the neutral color will be complementary.

There is room for a few plants, I could hang a spider plant in the corner or add a potted palm tree. These plants would add ambiance to the sunroom and the palm would act as an air purifier.

I am satisfied with these decorating ideas because the sunroom will look larger and eye appealing. A room where one would go to relax and enjoy the view of wildlife in the garden.

Outdoor Fall Decorating Ideas – Porch and Beyond

Many people enjoy decorating the front yard and entrance for the fall season. Fall is generally the season when people gather for home parties or other activities. A festively decorating entrance is a good way to welcome your guests and to make your home feel cozy during the fall season.
Decorate with pumpkins

Know that you do not have to go crazy. You can create cozy ambiance with pumpkins in a planter urn, two autumn leaves wreaths, outdoor lights; spotlight or solar mason jar and potted chrysanthemums.

Add decorations to your porch an entrance with a maple leaf door wreath, a medium size planter urn could hold another wreath that is turned to its side with a pumpkin sitting in the middle. Then scatter a few pumpkins on the steps. Buy solar light and set it up so that it highlights your front porch or other outdoor lights. I found special effect lights at amazing that I like, they are clear like mason jars and have lights inside. Add a few to your fall decorations and your home entrance will look festive for the fall season.

If you have a yard and you want to add more fall decorations then consider a wood wheelbarrow filled with pumpkins and assorted mums. Set this yard display close to your homes entrance and it will compliment your fall decorations.

In this digital design, you will see how this idea looks when it is put together.

Real Tree Home Decor Ideas

If you are a nature lover then it makes perfect sense to accent your home with real tree decorations. I like trees, I enjoy taking photographs of trees especially during the fall season. When the leaves change to gold, orange and red it is spectacular. I also like to photograph trees in the winter, at dawn when the moon is setting in the west and the sun is coming up in the east, the light on the trees is mystical is a dreamy sort of way. These photographs enabled me to create real tree home decoration; throw pillows, table runner, and incredible wall art.

When you decorate your home with real trees you will add a coziness to your space. Along with products, I also like to add fresh evergreen and pine cone arrangement for my coffee table because this will add a nature woodsy fragrance to your space. If you prefer you can buy a silk arrangement and then add balsam and cedar home fragrance oil. Use this oil in a fragrance oil warmer and get a woodsy natural fragrance.

Here is a home set that I designed at Polyvore this set will inspire you to decorate your living areas with real trees.
