Here is a room that I have only shared in bits and pieces…
Our Billiard Room – AKA Game Room:
I took this picture from the “spot” I sit and sip my tea most mornings after the kids have left for school.
Recently, my dear blogger friend, Amanda from Dixie Delights invited readers to submit their “spot” to her and yesterday she shared them on her blog. So many beautiful spaces..be sure to check them out!
I sent her a similar picture to the one below and decided that it was time I shared the rest of the room with you…even though it’s not finished. Then again, is a room ever really finished?
Here is the actual “spot” where I sit and enjoy the view (and my tea) each morning.
You might recognize the “behind the love seat area” because I change the vignette there often.
A spring vignette from last year – HERE.
Here is my view to the left from my spot.
The view straight ahead.
(That’s the tree I used to have in my living room pre-piano).
And here is the best view in the room.
The snow and clouds don’t do it justice.
Here is the entrance from the living room.
(Ignore the ugly ceiling fan…)
When we were building our house, this bonus room aka “the conservatory” as they called it, was one of the options “we just couldn’t live without“. Unfortunately, for years it sat mostly empty except for the pool table and a few scattered pieces of furniture. At one point, I had my seagrass chairs in here.
Over the years, I have added furniture to make the space feel more like a game room.
Here is the other end of the room with the pub table.
I have posted about the Sonoma Bookcase from Ballard – HERE.
The pub table is from Pier One and the chairs are from Bed Bath and Beyond (by Savavieh).
Here is the view from that end of the room.
Ignore the “Roomba” vacuum on the side. The clock needs a new battery too, but how would you even know that from this picture? Like I said, the room is not “done”…
It might not be done but it’s definitely being used more these days. New life has been brought into the room ever since my boys have developed an interest in pool. For years, the room was ignored except when we had company. Now it’s become the “fun room” of the house! (Yeah, that’s Rosie’s bed in the lower right hand corner…everyone uses this room nowadays!)
I think I might have the felt color on the table changed to something more neutral. In pictures that burgundy is way too bright! The color of the walls is Benjamin Moore Providence Olive which goes well with the dark furniture and the neutral carpet (that I wish was hardwood!) I think I am done with the fake palm…
And here we are, back to the seating area.
The chairs are from Target and the coffee table from Ballard.
And here we are sitting back in my spot. As much as I love the look of the pretty snow out there, I am looking forward to a view of green grass and leaves!
Do you have a room with a view?
