sunroom plans.

Another major selling point for our new home is our sunroom! The sunroom is right off our living room with an adjoining deck that goes out to our backyard. From the sunroom and deck we have a river view and H already has lots of plans for landscaping. Our contractors installed new windows and a small heater to the sunroom, so we'll be able to use it year-round! I'm sure it'll be one of our favorite spots to hang out together as a family. Here are my decorating plans for the space: 
My top priority is finding cute patio furniture for the room -- or else we'll be sitting on camping chairs. Thankfully, we found this set on sale a few weeks ago. I initially wanted light beige or white cushions, but I decided to go with the navy because I'm hoping they will be easier to keep clean with a toddler. 

H and I have always loved outdoor string lights on pergolas and patios, so we want to recreate that look and have the lights up year-round.

We want to have a garden but we've already spotted a few deer running along the river, so until we can figure out a way to keep the deer away I want to plant a small herb garden in our sunroom. I love this large modern planter -- it's tall enough to reach the windows so the herbs will get lots of sunshine. We have always had lots of houseplants around our house, but after our move back from Charleston we are down to one :( so I'm excited to add more greenery to our house again. Since the patio furniture is dark I want to keep all of our planted pots light -- small, mediumlarge white pots (similar here, herehere)

I love these silver lanterns but I'm not about to spend $200 -- these outdoor metal lanterns are an affordable alternative and they are also toddler friendly-- no glass + faux candles!


I fell in love these throw pillows -- (more options here).

What else do I need for our sunroom?
