2010 DCDH: Sarah Wessel Design

Next up in my DC Design House preview tour is the sunroom, which will be decorated by Sarah Wessel Design.

I adore sunrooms, don't you? All that light and all those windows - wish we had one! The sunroom in the design house is a beautiful, albeit challengingly shaped, space:

 

I have a soft spot for any room with a checkerboard floor, because that is one of my all-time favorite details - our kitchen has a similar floor. And this room has a traditional blue painted ceiling which I was happy to hear Sarah was going to keep, but paint it a much more sophisticated shade of pale aqua.

Sarah was an absolute pleasure to meet. Here is her concept for the space:

Don't you love this board? I was all over the fabric (on the board's background) that she will use on the loveseat's pillows - everything in the room compliments it so well. Sarah's chosen pieces are very classic and neutral, but I think with the paint (a lovely chartreuse on the walls and a pale aqua on the ceiling) and the pillows, she will keep the space modern and lively. Like I mentioned yesterday, many of the board's I saw have a very soothing/neutral color palette, so this space will be a nice pop of color for the house - perfect for a sunroom.

Here are some interiors from Sarah's portfolio:

Sarah has an eye for beautiful, traditional interiors with great uses of color. I'm looking forward to seeing her put that touch on the DH's sunroom.

  1. I love standing in an empty house dreaming of the possibilities...you lucky gal!!! From what I can see on all the boards, it's going to be so wonderful! Checkerboard floor and an aqua ceiling=love.
