At Home: Sarah and Bobby Cooper's Sunroom

The owner of a celeb-destination salon styles a patio into a star.

When not managing the lush locks of Joan Rivers, Michael Andretti, and other visiting A-listers at their Broad Ripple salon, Sarah and Bobby Cooper jet off to prep beauties for New York fashion shows and the Oscars red carpet. Back home in their northside neighborhood of Oxbow, Sarah spends downtime in this open-air sunroom, watching her daughters splash in the pool.

“My husband got it at the Broad Ripple Art Fair 15 years ago.”

“It’s almost romantic when they are blowing in the wind and all the candles are lit. Great for a date night or entertaining.”

“This came from Uber, and we just love it.”

“We wanted to use the patio in some of the colder months, too. It’s such a cozy and warm feeling to have it lit—even on a summer night.”

“We work with David Strohmeyer [The Empty Vase] for everything. He takes my ideas and makes them better.”

Bobby and Sarah gave this mini-goldendoodle to their 9-year-old daughter, Roxy, for making it through a big surgery and 10 weeks of recovery.

Color Palette
Sarah likes that this black-and-white combo stands the test of time. “In all of our travels, it always seems to be our favorite, so we carried that over to our home.”
