Sights seen “This Side of Paradise” at the Fisher Mansion

Next up in in my posts about the Designer’s Show House at the Fisher Mansion, (Go see it while still can until October 7th!), is the third sunroom on the first floor of home.

Entitled This Side of Paradise, this sunroom is designed by Barrie Spang and Ashleigh Clark of Sapphire Pear in Rocky River, Ohio. They made bold paint choices that I think really paid off. I don’t know that I would have had the guts to paint a sunroom black, but that choice grounded the room to allow a lot of fun eye candy.

Sun room ceiling, looks hand-painted, picks up colors from the room along with a healthy dose of black.

Mike’s comments about the vivid color of the couch…”I can taste that.”

Black walls made the other colors in the room really pop. I think the white curtain treatments were essential to keep the room airy with the dark floor and walls. It felt alive…the black wall pushed your eyes out the window to find the light.

The yellow bird was just one of many bird references in this sunroom. I like how distinct the bird’s shape is against the black wall.

I think the flooring here is original to the home. These glass and metal pieces seemed so perfect – since you can see through it, the lines of the art intersect the lines of the window like an accidental quilt.

Another yellow bird atop the lampshade! Of course this cute little bar cart has lemons to get that pop of yellow in one more time!
