Home & Garden: House Calls Home & Garden

Design Solutions

1. Start from a palette that will complement the window frames' deep brown.

2. Draw in the pink of spring and the orange of fall with durable patterned carpet tiles.

3. Stay flexible with slipcovers, which allow you to change throughout the year.

4. Choose a round dining table to contrast with the space's angles.

5. Integrate the sunroom with the rest of the house by repainting the inside wall.
