One major perk of owning a historic home? You might just score a gorgeous sunroom. With soaring ceilings, glass windows, a tufted sofa and two cushioned chairs, this spot is ideal for raising plants and enjoying views of Mother Nature.
Biz Ellis and Theresa Thorne, who host the podcast One Bad Mother, stash snacks everywhere they go. “I have them in my car, my purse, diaper bags, under the couch cushions, everywhere,” says Ellis, whose go-to snack is granola bars. “I keep a stack of Trader Joe’s fruit leathers in my purse for emergencies because they’re cheap, lightweight, non-perishable, take up no space and my kids love them any time,” says Thorne.
This stunning vintage white sofa is the one thing I might have tried to run out the door with. The woven upholstery fabric immediately adds an air of sophistication to a wall color that might otherwise come across as juvenile. The sleek curve of the arm that transitions into a fully upholstered leg, housing a floating bench cushion is a work of art with a clear mid-century reference. The only way to address a piece this special is to accent it with sleek black floor lamps, a classic black and white marble coffee table, and graphic drapery fabric by the talented Kelly Wearstler. I really enjoy seeing a successful relationship between the primary colors in the artwork and the tertiary wall color. Angela definitely took risks, but her artistic eye served her well.
