We are in the final design stages of our Austin Project and we loved that we were able to design a traditional morning room. A morning room where you can sit and sip on your hot coffee or have a glass of wine and visit while the cook of the house prepares dinner.
The term morning room originated from the idea of a room that would catch the morning sun and provide the warm touch of nature. Every morning room should be close to windows and provide plenty of natural lighting.
Our clients at our Austin Project love old homes and have always lived in them, so it was important to them to make sure this house didn’t feel cookie cutter. Making a new home feel “old” is really about adding character, charm and even a little “quirkiness”. It gives a home warmth and a lot of depth. Keeping those walls up and creating intentional spaces like a morning room, is another way to achieve this.
I think there’s a misconception that everything should match when you’re building or renovating a house. We like a home to feel cohesive, but also Interesting.
Here is the morning room we designed for our Austin Project… the perfect place to wind down with a glass of wine after a long day.
Here are some beautiful morning room inspiration pictures that are giving us some serious morning room envy.
I love sharing fun trends with you all and I hope that this gave you some inspiration to take the leap and design a new space in the house such as a morning room!
