Sunshine on a Cloudy Day: Our Sun Room

Mostly cloudy with a 60% chance of precipitation.  I woke up this morning to pouring rain and thunderstorms.  We need some rain after all this heat.  Despite needing the rain, I can't help but feel down and un energetic on days like these

To put the kick back in my step, I decided to search blog land and pinterest for some sun room inspiration.  Ah ha!  Just the trick.  The clouds began to part and the sun decided to make an apperance.  Not literally.  Work with me here... ;)

Did you notice the light blue ceiling?
So Southern...even in the Northeast!

{lookin' spiffy}

We have big plans for this room.  I close my eyes and envision sheer gauzy window treatments flanking the windows.  A daybed?  That's a possibility.  Or wicker funiture to enhance the beauty of the room and to create a gathering place for family and friends.  The possibilities are endless.  Are you ready for some sun room and porch goodies?
