Soak Up the Sun Without Leaving Your House

It's easy to love a house with lots of natural light, so I find myself drawn to rooms with large scale windows. Here in France, we're renting a gorgeous farmhouse in the countryside, and the room we spend the most time in is the room with the biggest windows. Of course!

This roundup of beautifully designed sun rooms will make you want to knock down a few walls and make a cozy, sunny spot of your very own.


When my head is feeling crazy, I crave minimally furnished spaces. The light in this one draws me in instantly.

On a hot summer day, this room looks like it would provide a cool escape -- and keep the pesky flies away.

The light in this entry room is so clear. I'd be tempted to move my office there so I'd have an excuse to spend lots of time basking in the clarity.

It wouldn't matter what you fixed for dinner if this was your dining room. Anything would taste good with those views.

I love that these images range from a living room bathed in light to the prettiest mud room I've ever seen. It just goes to show that any corner of the house can become a sun room. Except you might want to steer clear of the bathroom. : )
