I’ve always been a big fan of embracing the unexpected – it’s practically in my DNA! Rather than resisting it, I’ve learned to wholeheartedly welcome it into my life. Case in point: the great TV debate in our household.
Now, I must admit that having a TV above the fireplace never quite sat right with me. It felt like a design cliché that I was eager to avoid. After months of contemplation and a few rounds of “Should we or shouldn’t we?” discussions, we made a bold decision. The sunroom, we decided, would be the new home for the family television. It just made the most sense for our family’s lifestyle, and I was ready to challenge the stereotypes by designing a room that was not only visually stunning but also hosted a TV in the most unexpected way.
Just the other day my brother was standing in the room and asking about our artwork and I was so proud to tell him it was our TV! The Samsung Frame TV really does hang on the wall just like art and I love that I can change the screensaver art whenever the mood strikes!
Our journey began with a centerpiece that anchored the room – the fabulous Marin sofa from West Elm. Let me tell you, this sectional sofa quickly became a family favorite! We adore lounging on it while indulging in some TV time or engaging in epic Xbox battles. It’s the perfect spot for family bonding, and that’s what makes it so special! It’s plush but not too soft, made with down and if you order it in the alabaster performance basketweave… well, you might just find that pretty much ANYTHING comes clean from it! (ahem. yes, we have had PLENTY of experience with that one!)
A FEW FAVES
Now, let’s talk about the rest of the room. We’ve struck a perfect balance between comfort and style, creating a space that’s both functional and visually pleasing. Storage is ample, ensuring that we have plenty of places to stow away those pesky remotes and whatnot. But it’s not all about practicality; we’ve also infused the room with a generous dose of coziness. Gorgeous throw pillows and a selection of super-soft blankets complete the look, making it a dreamy space for relaxation and unwinding.
So, there you have it – our sunroom transformation that defies convention and celebrates the unexpected. I’m here to show you that it’s possible to have your TV and enjoy stunning design too. Whether it’s movie nights, gaming marathons, or simply basking in the warm glow of a well-designed space, our sunroom has got it all.
