Daily Covet: Rug for Inspiration

I keep threatening to redecorate my sunroom, which also doubles as my children’s tv/play room.  Everything in there was pulled from somewhere else, or originally intended for something else… like my husband’s beautiful, but way to big for the space, desk.

This morning, I found this amazing deal of a rug on Haute Look, and again it has me thinking about color schemes and redecorating.  I know I want a beach-y feel in there, and plan to paint the walls pale blue but from there, I haven’t made any significant decisions.  This rug though, makes me think light blue, navy and orange for the sunroom….

Something like this (shopping info on Polyvore.com)…

Sun Room, Option #1

I’ve got a space that needs some TLC.  My husband used to work from home and used a very cute room off the back of our living room and adjacent to our kitchen for his office.  It’s not a big room but it’s got french doors and windows on three sides.  We have decided to turn this into a play/TVroom for our children.  Since it’s so close to the kitchen, I have a better vantage point to witness and hopefully stifle any trouble making they are getting into.

Because, it’s a narrow room, just over 7′ wide, I will need some smaller scale pieces.  And because it’s nestled between our kitchen and our living room, I didn’t want to add in another wall color.  I’ve decided that it either needs to be the same color as our kitchen or our living room.  Hence, we have “Option #1” followed tomorrow by “Option #2.”  Take a look….
