Family Room

I've been busy trying to get my Family Room finished. I'm showing you where it's at at the moment and what it was before we demolished the bar and got the paint brush out The many blogs i visit encourage me to go for it. I'm lost at the moment I'd really like a new lounge if I'm honest although I like it's shape its well constructed so I'd be happy with recovering but that is not in the budget at the moment so I'll have to make do with cushions and throws.I'm trying not to get a matched look. My lamp on the table is my latest addition.My husband and I made it ( cost a whole $20 ). Where do I go from here


  1. I'm sure it will be beautiful, you already have some gorgeous elements. I love the black cabinet. Rachaelxx

  2. hi Karen!
    since you asked;) I do have two suggestions for you. 1. love the black cabinet, but how about painting the back boards a color to make all the items in it pop. something like the turquoise/green-blue you have on the right of the blog would be gorgous. I think right now it looks too much like the wall that it sits on and gets a little lost. 2. I think your fireplace would look great painted the wall (white). Because you have the flat screen tv on that same wall you get two large black holes there. A large peice of art hung vertically (to counter the horizontal lines of the tv) would look great or you could add a large board to use as a mantle.
    Let me know what you come up with!!

  3. Hi Karen, thanks for stopping by and I hope you are feeling better...I'm finally on the way up. I love what you have done to your family looks brave of you painting the brick and how wonderful it looks. Can't wait to see the finished room. You have great taste. Kym X
