House Tour-Family Room



Well, the sun is FINALLY out.  So, I decided to snap a few new pictures of our family room.  I have been wanting to update my home tour page.

There are still a few things I am tweaking in the room, but decided I had better take advantage of a sunny day.

View looking from kitchen toward fireplace wall.  The fireplace was originally white and I painted it a rich chocolate color and distressed it a bit. The details in the molding stand out much better now.

Wall opposite the fireplace.

Loving my new pillows.  I had picked up a similar floral one at Home Goods for my back porch and loved it so much I had a couple made for the family room.  The green chevron are from Home Goods as well.  Love that store!

Our custom built entertainment center.  This wall was a blank slate when we purchased the house.  With 20 foot ceilings I knew we needed something substantial.  The little TV stand from our first home was not going to cut it! Again, it started off white and then I painted it shortly after the fireplace.  The darker color really helps to anchor the room.

A better view of the fireplace.

Our curio coffee table from Pottery Barn.  This is one of my favorite pieces in the house.  I love changing it up with the seasons and holidays!  This year I decided to do a mix of Spring and Summer.

This dresser sits at the bottom of our back staircase, just to the left of the entertainment center.  It was a piece handed down to us that originally belonged to my hubby's great grandmother.  At one point in time it had 3 coats of white paint on it!  I lovingly brought it back to it's original birds eye maple finish. 

Our console table.  I love the rustic knotty pine!

Dough bowl arrangement on our fireplace mantel. 

A closer look at the shelves in the entertainment center.  I like to keep things clean and simple.

The other side.

I hope you enjoyed the tour.  I am hoping to work my way around the house and create a home tour page soon.

So inviting and pretty, friend! And the lampshade reminded me of your email. I never had to do anything to mine. Did yours smooth out ok? Love getting a peek inside! Such gorgeous high ceilings.
