There are 2 things left to do in the family room before it is really completely done, but since it is mostly how I want it, I decided to just go ahead and blog it anyway. It has been a long time coming and I really, REALLY love the room! I love to sit in there and just look around or just pop my head in and remember how cute it is now :-). The only downside is now I wish I could redo the whole house how I really want it. Well, one room at a time, right?
I didn't take any good before pictures and after searching a bit this morning I'm giving up on it because it would take too long. The walls were tan, the curtains red. The accents were mostly black and red and had been since we got married nearly 10 years ago. I have been SO ready for a change and knew what I loved. It just took awhile to finally start the process.
Now, on to the new and improved family room!
The walls are a pale gray and the accents are fun and bright! I just ordered one more yellow pillow for the couch and it will be complete. The last 2 touches needed are a perfect rug for the floor (which I have yet to find, feel free to send me suggestions) and I want the wall behind the couch to be covered in white book shelves with fun little accents dispersed among the books. I love all the color, I love incorporating all our favorite photos in a fun and easy-to-change way and I LOVE the yellow chair and my ceiling fan :-).
(and notice Preston trying to pop into any picture he could :-)...also don't mind his mess, I wasn't planning to take these pictures right then)
