Evergreen House: Sunroom Reveal

Inspiration

One of the very first additions to the Evergreen house that was made in the 30s was this beautiful little sunroom off the living room. With windows on three sides and the gorgeous coved ceiling, this space was alway my favorite room in the house.  As it turns out, it was also the hardest for me to stage! What’s that about?!

We decided to go bold and dramatic with the bluey-black paint color (Benjamin Moore’s Black Ink). I think it does a great job highlighting the cove and making the room feel like its own thing and separate from the living room.

The shades were a super lucky find! When you sell a house, most of the time the items that are more permanently installed (like hard-wired lighting and window treatments) convey with the closing of the house. We wanted to install window treatments in every room both for privacy and security of our staging pieces, but also to make the homeowners feel more settled and welcome when moving in. I know buying a house full of window treatments all at once can feel overwhelming! We found some great deals though that helped soften the investment for us, like these striped roman shades.

From the beginning, we had planned to set this room up like an office, but it was just too big. The room felt empty and misused when we had only a desk (albeit a large one) and a pair of chairs. We were brainstorming one day and I had the feeling that if this were my house, I would set up the space as a TV room, or a more casual family room.

We brought in this surprisingly affordable camel leather sofa from Amazon (that was originally purchase for the living room, but feels 1000% better suited for this room), two rattan arm chairs and a pair of basket style coffee tables and we STILL had room for the desk up against the window, which is where I probably would have wanted my desk anyway!

I bought this 8′ fiddle leaf fig on a whim a month or so ago. When it arrived I was SO disappointed with the way it looked, I packaged it back up and planned to return it. We started to get a little desperate for trees though by the end of the staging. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the house sold off market VERY quickly and we barely had time to finish the staging for our photos, which we use for marketing for Juniper Print Shop and to work with our sponsorships. There was no way we weren’t going to finish staging this home, even though it had already sold! But that meant we had to get creative with some of the pieces we already owned. I pulled out this 8′ fig to give it another try and with about five minutes of leaf fluffing, I AM OBSESSED!!!! It looks very convincing, especially in front of a window. And the height was exactly what we needed to cozy up this big space!

This room was not coming together for us during the two weeks we were non-stop down at the house finishing the staging. But in the end, I really love this room and think it came together. It feels eclectic and layered and cozy and functional. All my favorite adjectives for a space. Here are some additional shots and all the sources listed at the end!

  1. This is gorgeous! I remember you getting that leather sofa and being eh about it in the living room. The furniture arrangement ended up making lots of sense even though it took y’all a while to get there. Love the dramatic rather masculine vibe of the materials and color choices.

    1. I remember that too! Jenny, weren’t you disappointed with the quality of the leather? I had taken it off of my list of possible sofas after you said that. Did layering pillows make it seem better? Thanks!

      1. I talked a little more about this in my insta stories (they are saved in my highlights!), but the leather looked very tight when I unboxed it. It’s a fine material itself, it just looked different than the Article version of the same sofa (which I own). I do think this type and color of leather will hold up really well to kids and pets! Once we got the legs on and styled it with pillows, I was really happy, especially for the price!

  2. I am surprised by how good that leather sofa looks staged in the room and how “meh” it looks online. The sellers should get permission to use your photo. In fact, nearly everything in the room looks okay online but blends beautifully into a livable layered room.
    Except the Marte side chairs; they were always stunning.
    No wonder this house sold fast!

  3. Love this!!! Hey do you happen to know roughly what the measurements are of this room? Want to do a something similar in my office.

  4. Just take all of my money and design a house for me!! I’m obsessed and want to paint every room that color now. I’m normally not into the structured almost wicker-like basket style of the storage basket coffee tables, but I clicked on that link multiple times because they look so great and are so functional.

  5. Hi Jenny…Beautiful room! I notice that the shades come in only one width…did they just miraculously fit, or did you alter the width? If so, was it easy/cheap to do?

    1. It was a lucky fit! Awesome, right? I don’t think these could be easily adjusted. But they could be mounted on the outside of the window frame in some cases!

  6. Stunning room! I don’t see the source for that light blue striped lumbar pillow on the chair (the one in front of the tan pillow).

  7. The room is gorgeous, but WHY was it so hard to design? You mentioned the size was off for the office you had originally envisioned, but were all the windows also part of the problem?

    1. Hi Wendy! It was mostly about the size! I don’t think I really realized how big it was until we started moving furniture in! It needed a lot more than a desk and a pair of chairs! I love all the windows, so no problems there! :)

  8. I would love if you could share your source for the brass door knob! My house (built in 1945 and who knows how many renovations since then) has a mix of literally every knob finish and I’d love to replace them all with unlacquered brass.
