Lots of potted plants and eyecatching red & white shades on this peppermint-striped sun porch helped make it both cool and charming.

It also created a relaxing view from the simple but formal dining room that was just a few steps away. 

Built back in the early 1960s, the sunny addition had a white metal structure and windows on three sides, the sunporch could really be used all year round.

The fresh space had a grey pebble mosaic floor (that so quickly shed water from plants), its Romanesque couch, and accents of blue-colored bottle glass might be a dead ringer for a conservatory in a Booth Tarkington novel, yet its use was strictly made for the sixties.

The red and white peppermint stripe fabric of the awning-like window shades was also used on the antique chair and on the cylindrical pillows on the lounge.

Physically, as well as visually, the additional space expanded the dining room for entertaining, since cocktails and canapes could be served out in the sunroom from a rolling bar cart before dinner.
