Shawn had installed windows on his enclosed front porch, effectively creating a sunroom. But it still sat unused and became a magnet for old furniture, that is, until stylist Carlton Ellis created a cozy spot in which to relax, entertain, or sip morning coffee:
The first thing I did was plan the space. I thought it could be a nice area to read and have coffee in the morning so I decided on a settee and bench around a round table.
We both agreed the floors needed help so I suggested replacing them with slate tile. Next I chose a Moroccan-ish theme and a green colour palette (two themes that are currently inspiring me) and went shopping.
I was thrilled when Shawn said yes to the screen: I knew it would really give the wow factor. Ultimately the furniture is all neutral and it's the multiple tones of green that bring life and comfort to this sun-filled room.
The homeowner loves it and now uses it all the time to check emails and have lunch or just chat with friends.

Thank you Carlton!
