Monet Colors are Perfect for Creating a Warm and Inviting Sunroom

Winters can certainly make a house look dark and gloomy, and if the cold season often drags on in your location, you certainly won’t want your home to add to the gloom. Your sunroom in particular, is meant to be a friendly and inviting space. Help make your sunroom a welcoming retreat despite the bitter cold of winter with Monet-inspired designs.

Well-Lit and Warm

During cold winters, a warm and light-filled sunroom is a welcoming retreat. Monet-inspired color palette integrated with natural elements and comfortable furnishings have a highly inviting quality that’s extremely hard to resist. Pair these qualities with an efficient HVAC system and you’ll have the perfect family gathering space with a great view that you can enjoy all year round.

Feeling of Harmony

Monet’s garden paintings in particular, are renowned worldwide for creating harmony in the plantings, and have been the inspiration of many gardens. Taking a cue from these paintings, sunrooms can look more energizing and one with nature through a Monet-inspired palette. Add hints of casual lake-house elements, and a vacation house-like sunroom can be achieved.

Natural Colors

As Monet’s work heavily borrows from the different colors and hues found in plants and flowers, it’s best to use natural shades for the windows—such as those of the grass-woven or bamboo variety—as these work best with Monet’s nature-inspired designs. If your windows have UV glare protection, you don’t have to choose sunlight-resistant fabrics for your sunroom’s soft features. The soft colors of Monet designs tend to fade in a very pleasing way, which can add to your sunroom’s homey allure over time.

It takes plenty of design savvy to incorporate Monet’s designs into your sunroom, so don’t hesitate to ask a professional designer or remodeler for help.
