Our house tour continues today with a look around the family room. If you’ve been following Driven By Décor for a while now, these first pictures may look familiar because I blogged about the transformation of our family room fireplace and built-in bookcases last year. When we moved into our house, the family room had a painted brick fireplace flanked by bookcases with a pretty heinous wood tone.
After remodeling the space, the fireplace and bookcases in our family room now look like this:
Our family room is fairly small so furnishing it was super simple. The main seating is an Arhaus sectional (the Landsbury) that we’ve had for about seven years now – it’s truly impressive how well it has held up to the kids and dog. The large patterned pillows on the sectional were made out of a HomeGoods runner and the smaller ones were bought on Etsy.
Two grey lattice poufs provide additional seating:
At first I wasn’t sure if I liked having the poufs in the family room, but they’ve really grown on me. My girls love using them and I love that they allow the whole family to easily gather around the ottoman for playing board games (I play a mean game of “Sorry!” by the way…)
On the wall behind the sectional is a group of framed prints – I think that the shell prints need to be changed out for something different, don’t you?
Behind the other arm of the sectional, the family room is open to the kitchen. It wasn’t always that way – the family room used to be a completely separate room with a standard door opening from the kitchen but several years ago we tore down the wall between the two rooms and added a kitchen bar. The difference that opening up the space made to the feel of our home was pretty unbelievable.
On the remaining wall of the family room is a slider that takes you to the backyard. Hanging drapes on each side of the slider is definitely on the family room to-do list.
You know that I’m a mirror-holic, right? This one in the family room is one of my favorites:
Thanks for coming along on the family room tour!
