A Happy Place

For the Sunroom, yellow rattan chairs and an ottoman (vintage Ficks Reed from Craigslist) were Meg’s first big finds for the house. “I loved the color, and I didn’t even have to reupholster them,” she says. She added an IKEA credenza to store Josh’s DVDs and video games, and keeps an ever-changing display of plants and vintage objects (like science beakers) on top. Meg upgraded white cotton curtain panels with vibrant yellow velvet ribbon sewn along the edges. “The light in here is incredible, so it’s a happy place,” says Meg.
