If possible, get couches and chairs that have legs and a little bit of space between the bulk of the piece and the floor. This will make the space brighter by letting light come through underneath and gives you extra storage space for keeping pillows, blankets or anything else you need out of the way.
Have you ever looked at a room and thought something was missing? Never underestimate the power of texture. While often overlooked, it puts the finishing touch on any room. Pattern is your friend, but texture is your lover. Texture goes beyond appearance to create a feeling. It can add a sense of warmth, comfort or character to a room. A room in which a variety of textures are incorporated will likely be one in which color recedes into the background. In a neutral room, the best way to add interest and personality is through texture. Texture can easily be added to a space and just as easily changed when you are ready. And, including texture in your space will give it multiple layers and dimensions.
Speaking of brightening up a room, be careful with your light fixture choices. Go for transparent fixtures that diffuse light over the whole room. Table and floor lamps might look cute, but they take up unnecessary space so try sconces instead. That way you can light up the corners of the room, taking advantage of every inch of it, without cluttering up the floor or surfaces.
In the sunroom, which sits adjacent to the living and kitchen area, neutrals and muted tones direct the design aesthetic. Subdued shades of yellow, greens and reds are brought into the sunroom with the help of upholstered pieces that fill each corner. The tones and patterns are reminiscent of a well appointed English farmhouse. With one corner of the room dedicated to living and the other to dining, this is an extension of both the homes main living space and outdoor space. Exposed brick that runs along three walls and continues onto the terrace impart a sense of warmth in the room. Two large skylights and a wall of windows and double doors fill the room with natural light. The homeowners were hoping for a sunroom to draw you in, with a game table and chairs with areas for activities such as bridge, puzzles and entertaining.
