A Dog (or Kid) Friendly Family Room

This is my mother's and sister's family room in San Diego. 

 When you have dogs like they do (or children for that matter), it's nice to not to have to worry about surfaces.
Leather is a good choice for maintenance.

The turquoise lamp is from Ballard Design.

Their tufted sofa is the Pottery Barn Chesterfield.  

The large black coffee table is from Noir Furniture.



The sofa is covered in PB Performance Tweed, which is water and stain repellent.
In Graphite.

Chief is visiting San Diego with me.
Sort of dated and shiny.
But now it's recovered in soft, indoor/outdoor Perennials woven fabric.



While in Southern California, I drove up to Newport to visit a few clients and see friends for a quick trip.  I stayed at Laura's pretty house.
This is the view from her living room.

Now we are in San Diego again for a few more days 
until we head back to San Francisco.

The floor lamp is the Jamie Young Longshan.

So nice to be with family!

  1. Mary Ann when I visited San Diego and Laguna Beach in June, let me tell you it was difficult to come back to Kansas City. I know this is where I need to be for now; however would I jump at the chance should the opportunity arise? Absolutely. Preferably a way to be back here in KC whenever I needed to be!

  6. Beautiful room, allows for ample sitting and still looks beautiful with pets and children. I have a dog and a cat, they are allowed on furniture and leather, in my opinion, is the best option. Easy to clean and we all can enjoy light color interior. My favorite two pieces are the lamp and the animal print pillow on the nicely updated chair. Well done! :) Thank you for sharig!

  14. Mary Ann, I have wondered if you sold your previous house when you moved to San Francisco? This is a beautiful room. I have recently fallen for Chesterfield sofas! I'm starting to see one in my future.

  22. Your sister and mom's family room is wonderful! I can see the "Mary Ann" touches all around and it looks perfect. Makes me want to update my family room! How nice that you are able to spend time with them and even have little Chief with you. That pic of you with him is priceless! What a little doll! Have fun and have a safe trip home! xo

  24. Your parent's home is lovely, Mary Ann, and that view is simply gorgeous! I love the chair makeover, very simple and clean. I have a question for you about leather. I am thinking about getting a leather chair for my den makeover. I have two dogs that I've spoiled and they are always welcome to sit with me. Yet I've heard conflicting stories on whether or not pets leave scratch marks on leather. Could it happen to only certain types of leather? I love how soft and supple leather is, and how well it cleans up. Just don't want to end up with a piece that looks like it has been around for hundreds of years!

    Thanks for the visit and the well wishes on the hand surgery.
