Decorating a Sun Room: Progress

Dear Chicago House,

Forgive me if I am mistaken but isn’t a sun room for a little light therapy”, painting it a yucky dark color and filling it will heavy furniture sort of defeats the object don’t you think. I mean look at yourself, you should be ashamed

But that was during the reign of your previous owners and this is now.


Bye bye to

  • Weird ceiling beams ( they were decorative ??? anyway)
  • Gross green walls…this was the only room in the house where the walls were not brown
  • Wood stained trim
  • A valance that extended the whole perimeter of the room

Hello to

  • White woodwork
  • Simple ceiling
  • Fresh neutral walls
  • Light

The room is not finished yet, I need a coffee table of sorts and some lamps, but it is a fabulous place to lounge.

Love from

Creative in Chicago

  1. Hi!
    I stumbled upon your blog when I was googling for DIY coastal theme things…
    My parents have a little house a few miles from the beach, and I want to decorate it with DIY projects, because I'm short of money, and it will be more me!
    I am amazed by your projects!!!! So much wonderful things!!! And such great ideas!!!
    From the rooms makeovers, I must say that the Sun Room is my favorite, because I always wanted one where I could read a book in the summer, or watch the rain in the winter…
    Congratulations for all your accomplishements!!!
    You are turning this house into a home! <3
    Kisses from Portugal!
