Over the the years, our family rooms in different homes have been through the wringer...sticky fingers, red Gatorade (in spite of rules), slumber parties, puppies, kids lounging after soccer/basketball/lacrosse/ballet/cheerleading practice...
Yeah, I get it. Life. I just draw the line at keeping the dog food bin in the middle of the room.
If you know me (most of you do), I bet you would say I'm pretty nice. But when Angela asked for my help refurbishing her family room...
I said "Angela, the dog food bin is a deal breaker." She was a bit surprised...but you have to set your ground rules.
Also, the art was not right and ... the wainscoting ended in a funny place... Oh and the television was not centered. Lots of bad news, right? But you know how I like to work with the existing situation!
And now after...same sectional and map...just rearranged with less stuff.velvet pillows and suzani lumbar are from Pottery Barn (budget friendly) and the far left and right are linen and custom made by Liana...adds elegance (have to splurge a bit). Angela also treated herself the RH oatmeal cashmere throw...which is a luxury stamp I like to do for most clients (just different colors).
This one is from Restoration Hardware.
The darker hand knotted Moroccan rug (good with a black labrador) is also from Restoration Hardware.
We centered the television and flanked the existing console with RH shelves.
great blue stone topped table. And Angela found the new lamps.
I cut the colorful branches from her front yard.
Get in here and relax, family :)
Thanks for visiting and HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
