I finally think I have the family room where I am happy with it. I haven't decided what to do with the windows, so I will just leave them as is. The color is Sherwin Williams Anew Gray, but we had the store add in a little bit of Sherwin Williams Mega Greige just to deepen it a little bit. The color works so well in the space, I actually love it.
This is a reminder of the before (when we bought the house). Lovely isn't it?
Here is the after, I tried to get the same angle. This is what you see as you walk into the room. We removed the paneling and the fireplace and put in two sets of french doors. We changed the windows, floors, and added central a/c.
This before is the angle from between the couches.
We widened the opening and got rid of the wood patch up on the wall, allowing our kitchen to be open to the family room. It allows for better flow and these two rooms are the most used in our house.
This angle below is standing by the kitchen. We chose two full sofas, instead of a sectional. We love the amount of seating and comfort of the sofas.
Here is the angle standing in front of the TV looking at the main entrance of the family room from our dining/living room. We have some custom made frames (I had to blur the pictures as per my husbands request, he's not sure about having his face on the Internet.)
This is the same entrance mentioned above, looking into the family room. Here we have a little seating area with my inspiration chairs and arc lamp. This is basically what started this entire family room redo. The garden stool was found at Big Lots last spring for $20.00. I had intended to put it outside, but thought it added something to this corner.
Here's a close up of some of the pillows and our Kas ripple throw. I've had the pillows for a while. The damask one is probably 3 years old from CB2 and the green one is from ZGallerie on clearance last summer.
I am very happy with how the room turned out. It feels warmer and making the move away from beige walls was long overdue. What do you think?
