So with it being summer and all, the sweetie and I have been spending a lot of time outside. Mainly hanging out in our sunroom. Did I mention I have a sunroom? I really need to make more pictures of the casa. Right now the sun room is a bit on the dusty side as it is basically a porch with windows. This weekend I promise I will clean it up and make pictures for you.
In it’s present state, my sun room is a bland and dusty space. I’ve been trying to come up with ways to make it feel more like a living space and less like a walk through space. So, I visited good ol’ reliable Better Homes and Gardens for some ideas. I discovered something called “porch rooms”. I’m in the love with this idea, they also have some pretty pictures of “open air rooms”, these are basically patios, but still I love the terminology. Can you picture it, lemonade in hand, inviting guests to the open air room. That would get you some curious looks I’m sure. But on to the pictures.
I really like the porch above, I’ve tried this in my sunroom. It’s worked out fairly well, now if only I could keep the dog hair and dust out.
This one is really nice too, I’ve thought about converting my sunroom into a sleeping space. Especially when my casa is full of family.
I love all the rocking chairs in this one.
This one looked so cozy, I could see myself curling up in that backyard with a good book.
The fireplace on this one caught my eye. Can’t you imagine sipping lemonade on that patio in the summer, and sitting near the fire in the early spring and late fall?
I had to include this one, because I just liked the patio. I would love to re-do my old cement slab patio with something like this. I’ve thought about scored concrete. Hmm….the possibilities.
There are so many pictures I would have loved to share, but alas, there certainly is not enough time to share them. I hope you enjoyed the stroll through my current favorite “open air rooms” and “porch rooms”.
