To coordinate with the dining space adjacent to this sun room, the designer got rid of the out-of-date wicker furnishings and kicked up the style by adding bright colors, fun patterns and comfy furnishings.
A black-framed mirror, collection of black candlesticks and turquoise books create a decorative display atop this white mantel. Black and white patterned wallpaper bring the background to life for a cohesive and stylish design.
Even when reusing existing items, such as this cocktail table and antique rug, you can decorate the table in a way that modernizes the look. As this table shows, look for a pair of heavy leaded glass candleholders, which designers Lance Jackson and David Ecton with Parker Kennedy Living say you can find affordably priced at local vintage stores or on websites such as Etsy.com. Then add in a piece of cut glass (this one is high-end turquoise, but you can find others on a lower end) to contrast with the glass candlestick holders. The books were already in their homeowner's collection.
