  1. Toni,
    Congratulations! Looks like a comfy retreat!

  2. Just love the way the potted plants add instant color to the room. And the sofa looks beautiful and comfy too!! Haffun :-)

  3. So worth waiting for! The room turned out beautifully, the brick wall adds so much. All that and morning sun......enjoy!

  4. The space looks fabulous!! Love the decor, furniture and of course the chandelier.

  5. I followed you over from Design Sponge because I am now obsessed with this project. I have a similar addition, but mine is not connected to my house, just plopped on the side of it and covering two windows. It was teh only thing I did not love when buying this house (we called it the murder shed).
    I have found a great contractor to do it bit by bit with me helping. So, I just have a few questions. Is this room connected to your house in terms of utilities/heat/a/c? Was it "just" a matter of reframing and completing walls and putting in windows? I found a few of the past posts about it so I;'ll start reading those, but any extra insight would be greatly appreciated--you've already given me a great inspiration!

  6. Beautiful! Please share the names of the wall, trim, and ceiling paint colors you used in here. Thanks!
