What She Did | Sunroom
Went for Drama
Rich browns and olive green are now the dominant colors in the once white-and-gray sunroom. "We're homebodies, TV-watching people, so we wanted the room to be more of a cozy den," says Bailey. She enveloped the entire space with a dark brown hue in a chic lacquered finish. Furnishings in various textures (including wool, acrylic, sisal, brass, leather, and wood) keep the deep palette from feeling flat, while fun patterned fabrics (such as a zebra print and a scenic velvet with flying ducks) give the room an extra layer of personality.
Rebuilt the Cabinetry
Bailey redesigned the built-ins to house the television (it previously hung in a corner) and provide the family with a combination of open and closed storage. The raised-panel doors give the cabinetry an upgraded look that feels stately and symmetrical.

Lacquering the walls took weeks but was well worth it. "It totally makes the room," says Bailey.
