I was contacted by the coordinator of the Douglas Elliman, a global real estate firm, to participate. When a firm like that has seen your blog, that means the blog is going places further than this little island in the Caribbean. So, I went for some digging for what the term “Florida room” meant. It’s basically just another word for a sun room. Beside my own idea for the sun room, I got some pretty interesting ideas from Douglas Elliman Florida Real Estate Page. I mean, seriously, living in Florida can be a dream.
So I made a mood board for a sun room that can be placed in the colder places of the world. My thoughts went directly to all white, with pastel colors like blue, green, orange and yellow. A Scandinavian vibe with pastel colors and a bit of Boho chic.
Scandinavian look has most of the time white as a base color. So think for your walls and floors an all white color. You can have an wooden floor white washed or painted plain white. You can also work with shades of light grey. To give the room a warm feeling, I’m adding wood furniture pieces to the mix. Layer up the floor with colorful rugs. I made here a combination of an colorful traditional rug and a simple jute rug. Here we’ll be adding the bohemian pieces like the hammock and the colorful poofs. When thinking of a bohemian theme, think about adding several greenery. Adding plants to the mix, will give you the tropical feeling instantly. I wanted to add the color yellow and a soft green to the sitting pieces. This will bring you to the warm vibe but also combines well with the weather in the colder places of the world.
Below some images to get you more inspired in my theme.
