This room has been a stumper~but finally I found something that works.
It is an awkward room size and shape, and as Kathyrn Ireland said
on Million Dollar Decorators,
"There is always one room in every house that is awkward".
This was the room before I made changes.
My desire was to have this room be in line with the rest of the house
in terms of color palette and happiness vibe.
I painted the walls Natural Wicker by Ben Moore.
The coffee table got a two tone paint job as well.
Down came the curtains and the wood blinds stayed.
The leopard rug will be going to college with my son Colin.
The floral Company C rug, which was folded up in storage,
was the last thing I added and it changed the whole feel of the room.
It has a 1970s flower power kind of vibe.
We love it in here now!
The colorful artwork was a sentimental piece we had bought for our lake house.
A chenille pouff!
I made a cover for our leather ottoman out of an old chenille spread.
There was way too much leather in here and this
cotton spread adds vintage charm.
We coral all of our junk on a tray~its a great idea to make things look tidy.
For some reason, pens and pencils multiply on this table.
Brighter shades of my favorite blues and greens look great in this space.
Two old bottles~how easy it is to add a splash of color.
Dillon poses patiently~he is used to seeing me take pics of the house.
Our dark man cave is no longer.
This is a room filled with a mix that just seems to work.
We are calling it our family room now~
As the artwork says
It'll cost Nothing to Dream,
And Everything not to...
I totally agree!
