Natasha and the Plant-Filled Sunroom — House Tour

Natasha and the Plant-Filled Sunroom — House Tour
Natasha and the Plant-Filled Sunroom — House Tour

Name: Natasha Nyberg and Brad Sammut; children Lisette and Maxine; cats Matilda and Pickle; dogs Greta, Lotte, and Mr. Chips

Location: Garfield Park; Grand Rapids, Michigan

Size: 2,200 square feet

Years lived in: 5 years; Owned

Natasha and I met through Instagram. She began following my account and when I scrolled through her feed, I saw images of a very cool home: rich colors, objects with stories, and a refreshing indifference to trends. I had a hunch that she found me through Apartment Therapy, and based on her home, she would be a good House Tour candidate. I messaged her and we emailed back and forth. It turned out that Natasha was very familiar with Apartment Therapy, having participated/been featured in six different contests/articles over the years!

Check out Natasha’s home in a Flickr Find, the 2011 Color Contest, the 2011 Small Kids, Big Color Contest, a Color Inspiration gallery, the 2012 Room for Color Contest, and the Bedroom Retreat Contest and then compare those rooms to today’s tour. In the years since those publications, Natasha and her husband Brad have rearranged or swapped out artwork and furniture to accommodate their changing needs and styles. There are towers of books in the living room and a few new furniture pieces. The yellow little girl’s bedroom above the sunroom was converted back to a guest bedroom. The sunroom’s dining table has been replaced with a couch for sipping morning coffee, reading a book, or napping among the plants.

While reading through Natasha’s source list, you’ll learn that most items in her home didn’t come from a furniture store or catalog. Many objects are well-loved family heirlooms, generous gifts from friends, or lucky finds at thrift stores.
