Before Photos: Bucks County Designer House Sunroom

I promised I’d share my process with you for the designer house room I’m working on…
So here are a few before images of the space, taken by me when I first visited the home, early in February.

Visitors to the designer house will enter my space from this direction after leaving the kitchen.

The ample sunroom at the Bucks County Designer House is approximately 13'deep x 16'wide and has windows on three walls. It is sited directly off the kitchen in the designer house and will be the final room on the house tour.
The kitchen features dark cabinets and will be updated beautifully by another design firm.  The walls and ceilings in my sunroom space are stained a lovely light gray.
The floors of the sunroom are elegant terra-cotta tiles (which need a good cleaning)…I’m planning to incorporate the coral/pink/gold tones into the room’s design. I plan to install an 8’x10′ area rug (more on that later) and lots of fun vintage furnishings.
The terra-cotta floor tiles are lovely and feature rose and gold tones, which I'm hoping to incorporate into the room's design.

Soon, I’ll share some fabric choices with you, along with the cool vintage items I plan to put in the room. I think I’ll do some fun things with the layout in the space as well…I like to do the unexpected so my space becomes more memorable.

In the meantime the BCDH Empty House Party is coming up on Sunday, February 23rd. For tickets and more information, click here: http://www.buckscountydesignerhouse.org/ehp/
Stay tuned and feel free to weigh-in with your own ideas for the sunroom.

  1. Kristine, so excited to see you will be doing a room this year. I clicked over to see the dates of the tour, so i’ll have to pencil that in to come take the tour and see your room. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the sunroom – what a great space with natural light. I also wanted to let you know that I’m participating in the Habitat for Humanity/Restore Montco Upcycle Challenge. I can email you with more details but there will be an open house to the public to tour the home. I’m super excited for the opportunity – especially to be able to give back with design.

    • What a wonderful opportunity, Holly! Keep me updated on your progress and I’ll look forward to seeing the Habitat Home when it’s finished. Thanks for commenting–I love my Sunroom at the Bucks County Designer House…it’s going to be such a fun, vintage mix!
