Houzz: 15 Sunrooms to Relax in This Spring


The reclaimed wood beams here draw the eye up. Then, the warm touch of the heated multicolored slate brings your eyes back down. And everything in between is also worth a look in this two-story sunroom filled with light. “The eye moves around the large room, allowing you to discover objects of interest the further you look; the juxtapositions are interesting versus predictable,” says Jo Ann Stephens Alston, design director at J. Stephens Interiors. 

The furniture allows for group gatherings. Behind the sofas, a window seat provides the perfect reading spot for lazy days. She chose each seating option based on its comfort, flexibility, aesthetics and scale. The curve of the sofa back provides interest as you walk into the room, she says. Additionally, two French bergère armchairs can be moved to join the central seating group if many people are being entertained. “I like mixing styles of furniture to create interest in a space,” the designer says.
