You don't have to use warm colors. Instead, use a snowy white palette that brings the outdoors in, reflecting the winter sun and glistening snow. For even more light, don't cover up the windows. A minimal covering, such as a valance, will hide any blinds or shades. This palette is a great choice for a small space as it keeps the look bright and open.
If white seems too stark, punch up the color factor by adding a touch of Morocco or Mexico. Natural medium-toned woods mixed with the red, rust, and gold patterns found on the pillows and rug provide a foil for the bright walls.
If you are looking for privacy, this drape, with its warm colors and bold pattern, would fit right into a Moroccan or Mexican theme. Lining the drape will help stop drafts and prevent heat from escaping through the windows.
Add a charming chandelier to any sunroom space. Fabric or glass shades will keep the light warm and soft.
Rattan furniture isn't just for summer. Bring on the cushions and pillows in shades of red, cranberry, and hunter green for the winter months and add a thick area rug in complementary tones. An added bonus is that the padding provided ensures that the furniture is comfortable rather than stiff, a necessity for any sunroom.
If you have a fireplace, move your furniture away from the walls and center the conversation area around it. The more intimate seating will feel welcoming when its cold outside. Pulling your furniture away from the walls will also allow you to have a better view outside.
A white ceiling can feel cold in winter, so visually offset it by installing a ceiling fan with blades in a deep wood tone. The fan is also functional. Changing the direction of the rotation from where it is set for the summer months forces the warm air down into the room rather than out through the roof. Make sure you use the right size for your room. If you're unsure, a professional can help.
Do you have neutral upholstered furniture pieces? Change summer's cool blue drapes and pillows to rich bold orange ones for fall and winter (look for insulated drapes for additional warmth). For a rustic touch that will offset the strong color, consider adding lanterns. Move them outside when summer returns.
For more of a color pop, add a fun bold accent piece like this Morac Hex garden stool. It serves as a table or extra seating!
Forget the sunroom's standard white trimmed windows. Instead, use natural light wood. It works exceptionally well in this room, with its deep clay paint on the walls and the mixture of medium and dark woods on the floor and the furniture. Combining these nature-based materials and colors results in a light and open space that is still filled with warmth.
If you have numerous windows and not much wall space in between, keep the walls light-colored and bright and use darker rattan shades or wooden blinds when making the transition to winter style.
This room is a knockout, right? If you have a high ceiling like so see in this gorgeous space, add a rug to ground your furniture. While snuggling on the sofa, it will feel like you brought height of the room down to human scale without taking away from the architecture, and the warmth underneath your feet will be welcome on a chilly night.
