As the weather starts getting warmer, it’s time to take the party outside! Well, not completely outside. A Florida room or sunroom can be the perfect shady retreat to enjoy the weather without dealing with bugs.

This screened in room is usually attached to the residence and is designed to let sunlight and fresh air into the space to make it the perfect fours seasons room in some locations. A Florida room, quite popular in the south is combination of an indoor/outdoor space featuring anything from a sitting area, a place to eat, drink and take in Mother Nature.

While many homeowners consider the room an afterthought, most decorate a Florida room in a beach theme or with palm trees. But, I wanted to share with you three not so ordinary ways to decorate this room — so it stands out on the block. This room can be a great feature to show off in your home whether staying or selling.

Cacti Florida Room

This design is inspired by another popular plant trending this year the cactus. Here we paired neutral colors with a pop of green. Why not try Pantone’s 2017 Color of the year Greenery for a fresh space. This room has a place to dine and lounge with guests. The agave tree and succulents bring in the natural element, while the cactus inspired plate and vases are the only literal take on the desert plant. Complete the look with a round mirror that looks like a sunburst, plus black and white images of your desert travels. [By clicking on the images below, you can shop the look.]

Rockin’ Florida Room

The next design throws traditional right out the window. Lily Pulitzer inspired this rocker look with her colorful printed pillows. The mint green and aqua work harmoniously together, while the splash of hot pink carries that unexpected vibe. The outdoor baroque style armchair is fit for a king or queen and pairs nicely with the natural wood furniture. Play up that natural elements like a succulent centerpiece, fig tree and moss wall art.

Farmhouse Florida Room

Inspired by Joanne Gaines Magnolia Home Collection, why not bring a little country to your Florida room to enjoy a fresh farmhouse feel while basking in the sun. By mixing neutral colors and textures this room has depth no guest could resist lounging in. Pair reclaimed wood, galvanized metals and chicken wire to set the scene. Pile drinks on top the bar cart to unwind by the fire after a hard day’s work.
