Summer in the Family Room

Hi Everyone,

I've made some changes to our family room recently and would like to share them with you and see what you think!  I created an arrangement in the fireplace, added one of my recently purchased vintage tablecloths to the round table, and changed some accessories and wall arrangements.  It feels more like summer and more cottage like to me.  So here are the pics - I would love to hear any thoughts, suggestions, ideas you have for this room.  It has taken me awhile to get it to where it seems just right to me.

  2. I love this room. I have been wanting to get some leather furniture for my family room but one thing that has been holding me back (besides the cost) is I was afraid it wold look too hard or manly. You have shown how it can look soft too!

  7. beautiful and inviting living room. Love the vignette you did on the big wall.
    Here is a little tip so you don't have so many holes in the wall.
    Next time use some brown craft paper and cut out the size of the things you want to hang. Grab some painters tape and play around with your pieces on the wall to see how they will look. This way you won't have lots of nail holes.

  10. Your room is very beautiful! You have arranged everything so nicely and yes it does look very cottage-y. The color of paint is so perfect, I have found myself yearning for that color, recently. Painting the walls is out of the question for me, so just adding a bit here and there has really helped. Lovely job.
    Hugs, Cindy

  13. Beautiful! I saw you featured on Favorite Paint Colors and had to pop over. We used Tide Pools in our living room and on several pieces we refinished for our furniture refinishing business! (It's been a big hit with clients!) How fun! :)
