The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Sunroom}

One of the rooms that we spend the most time in is the sunroom. Large windows lead to a view of the front garden and the passers-by on the street. It is our favorite room to sip a cocktail and visit with friends. Has Parlor Patter been replaced by Sunroom Sippin'? Only time will tell. The built-ins in this room are what "sold" me on the house. I cannot get enough of built-in shelving. Believe it or not, we used most of the furniture from our former home on Perrier- sofa, club chairs, bar cart, end table, round clock table. 

Here is how the sunroom looked on May 11, 2018.

And here is the sunroom today, September 18.

I am loving the new sideboard piece that we purchased in May especially for the sunroom. We initially thought we may want a TV atop the piece but decided not to for now. The sideboard was purchased from DOP Antiques. The two green and white bistro chairs are also a new purchase from Frontgate. I have wanted a pair for a long time. The drapes were a splurge from Fairfax Fabric Company on Magazine Street. The overhead lighting and branch sconces are Visual Comfort from Rivers Spencer also on Magazine Street.

The Built-ins!!! Yes, I adore built-ins as they are so fun to decorate and constantly rearrange. I am so smitten with the shelves and the ample storage beneath.

The Southern bird oils gracing the grasscloth covered walls are from Chic Chateau Interiors in my hometown of Thibodaux. The pheasant painting is by by own niece Lucy Pearce (Ain't she talented?). The acorn and oak leaf art was purchased from The Plantation Shop way back in 2008, and the turtle shell plates atop the bar are by Vietri purchased from Hazelnut. I believe they are discontinued but are one of my favorite things.

The sunroom will be a great room to entertain and also a great room to relax.

Sunroom, y'all!


  1. You amaze me! The room is gorgeous. I think it would be my favorite spot as well to sip a cocktail.

  2. Ah......just getting smiles here. Again, you let the air in, and some organizational calm.

  3. Good morning, Ron! The sunroom is a showcase of style that is magazine worthy! It's my favorite room so far! Your "old" furniture blends beautifully with your new pieces! I'm glad you and J decided not to put a tv in there for now. Hopefully, one day I can see it in person and "sip" in the sunroom! Looking forward to more before and after pictures! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. Every room looks amazing. You are getting settled in so fast and everything is stunning.

  5. Oh Yeah!!! MUCH better now! I love how everything has found a home and the place already "looks like" the two of you. Perfect!!! I am quite smitten with the drapery fabric!!!!! xo Diana

  6. Fabulous room....thank you for taking down the 'other' wallpaper, lol!

  7. Lighting, grass cloth, drapes, oh my!!! Fantabulous!

  8. All I can say is wow! How on earth have you done so much in so little time? Everything looks great. I can see why you like the sunroom.....I think that might be my favorite...so far! ;)

  9. I have really spent some time looking at all the pictures. You have embraced every inch of this house so perfectly and rather quickly! You must have spent an enormous amount of time plotting this all out to be so efficient with it! Your artwork is displayed beautifully and I agree the built-ins are wonderful. I sure wish I lived closer so I could drop on by!

  10. How do you do it? Just beautiful! So look forward to seeing your home each morning. You have accomplished so much in a short time. Your strategy in doing all this would be welcome😀
