Bringing Summer Inside

When all the French doors are open in the sun room, you  have the feeling that you are sitting out side   We will enjoy a lot of the summer in this wonderful room.

When we moved here five years ago, this was covered porch.  H couldn't wait to make us a sun porch to enjoy year round.   He put three sets of french doors on the south and 3 sets on the east side of the house.  He also added a deck to the east side that we use for cook outs.  Right now though, Kyleigh has her swimming pool set up there...
I have my shabby flag hung in the sun room for the Memorial holiday...
We love to sit outdoors and enjoy the yard, so there are plenty of chairs scattered around...
This photo shows the south and east entrance to the sun room..

I have a cute little concrete pig on the right to hold the door open and a sweet dog on the left to hold that door open...

I love  red, white and blue flags...but the shabby side of me likes PINK, white and pale blue flags too...lol

I can watch Kyleigh play from my comfy seat on the couch....

Til next time....

  31. lovely! Hopping over from the gathering spot

    ReplyDelete
  32. The pale flag you have is awesome, and so is that brick wall!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The vintage lawn chairs are wonderful! I remember sitting in my grand mother's metal porch chairs and the webbed chairs that my parents had. Whatever happened to those? They were light and easy, just some maintenance once in awhile. Your porch would be so nice too, especially on those lightly rainy days where you can be comfortable yet still out in nature.

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a lovely home you have created for your family!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love coming over here and look at your rooms - real treasures! Thank you for sharing this post at the WEDNESDAYS ADORNED FROM ABOVE Blog Hop :-)

  36. Such beautiful spaces!! I love those pink metal chairs outside and all of the vintage linens you've used to create such a welcoming spot!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Absolutely dreamy. French doors are a great idea, because they are a lot easier to open than most windows. I enJOY all the vintage material as well. As I've said before, love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
