This is one of the rooms that we absolutely started with/at ZERO.  As in zero furniture and no idea what to do with an indoor sunroom space.  As it would happen, this is my favorite room in the house.  I love sitting in here, being able to see students as they arrive through the walls of windows and naturally, Handsome absolutely loves to take his afternoon nap in this room. His custom cat bed (made by my father) is pictured in the photo below.

You can see the before photos and the progress photos as a reference point.

Let there light.  This is the only room in the house I have no desire to cover in curtains or roman shades. I absolutely love these walls of windows and all the light that comes in.  This is why we decided to use such a dark paint color. Regardless of the time of day, the light in the room casts a very nice contrast on the walls to create excellent ambiance.  

As far as I am concerned, this room will never be finished.  Considering we started with no furniture everything that has been added was most likely a temporary piece, or was purchased with the intention of reupholstery as the room continues to come together.  These white chairs and the purple ottoman are now high on the list of "FIX ITS". The table was purchased for this room. 

We removed the set of french doors to this room because of how far the stuck out into the room. Additionally, 3 sets of french doors in the living room seemed a bit much.  Since removing this set of doors, it has doubled the size of the sunroom and also has helped to make the two rooms feel more connected. As a contrast to the BM: Decorator's White, BM: Soot looks lovely. The ceiling also received a new coat of paint, BM: Mt. Rainier Gray which turned out to be an exact match to the tile grout on the sunroom floor.
