Hello, everyone! I'm back today to share a few updates I made to my family room and great room area. Since we moved into our home 3 years ago, I have slowly been decorating my home. The family room has undergone a couple of revisions over that time, which you can see here and here, but it really never felt quite right to me. I decided to give it one last go and see if I could get the space to feel and look the way I wanted it to. It didn't take much this time, and the changes are pretty subtle, but the family room/great room area finally has the feel and look I had always been hoping for. Take a look...
I replaced the blue Greek key rug with this taupe and seaglass one. The rug is made of wool and silk and the luminescence of the pattern makes it look like water
I replaces the wood tray top coffee table with this gold and stone top one from Bernhardt Furniture. I love the longer length of it. The gold base and the off - white stone top provide a nice contrast to the rug. This table can also withstand the abuse it will take from my kids, which is a nice bonus!
I accessorized the top using find from One Kings Lane and Target. The beautiful Shagreen Coral Box and Brass Foliage Dish is from Kathy Kuo Home. KKH has the most gorgeous selection of accessories!
You can see the new board and batten staircase wall in the background. That wall is HUGE! It needed something to give it some architectural interest and wow factor! Adding the trim did exactly that. Mission accomplished!
I purchased these new faux bamboo dining chairs for my own home after using them in a client project. They are beautiful in person and work so well with our round dining table.
I replaced the cream accent table with this white washed one from Kathy Kuo Home. I really like the old table, but I wanted something that had cleaner lines. This table also has an antiqued mirror top, which I adore. Adding a reflective surface to the space helps to break up all the solid surface area and also adds a bit more glamour. Gotta love that!
New pillows were also selected for the sofas in a mix of solids and patterns. The pink lumbar has gold weaving throughout the fabric. It's tiny details like that which make me so happy!
In the entry I replaced the old geometric blue rug with this gorgeous Oushak Rug. Not only is it slightly larger than the old one and better suited for the space, but the entire color palette of the Great Room area is represented in this rug.
More of the new pillows. I love mixing patterns, solids and textures together.
An up close view of the new side table. It is so gorgeous. Did I mention that this table is named after me on the Kathy Kuo Home website? I was giddy when I found out Kathy and her team did that. Who wouldn't want a stunning piece of furniture named after them? It's called the Sita French Country White Washed Antiqued Mirrored Accent Table. That table and I are the perfect match. Don't you think?
As I mentioned before, the changes are subtle, but they definitely enhance the space and give it the elegant, yet comfortable look and feel I have always desired.
Just for fun here is a look at the transformation my family room has undergone since we moved in 3 years ago.
I hope you like it as much as I do!!
