Today we are continuing our home tour, and taking you inside the other half of my favorite area in the house, the Family Room! Our little family spends so much time together in this space. I wanted to share all the details that went into designing it and how we made it feel like home!
As I mentioned in our kitchen reveal, I really consider this main room as the heart of our home. Most importantly I wanted it to feel comfortable and welcoming. I wanted it to be a place where my people wanted to come together and just talk about their days. Since it is a statement area of our home, I also wanted it to reflect our modern + unique design aesthetic. So I took this wish list and went straight to the master mind, Ashley, and together we came up with a space I love!!
As you can see in the kitchen + dining reveal, it is a very bright but neutral space. Since I had that as the foundation, we knew we wanted to add some fun pops with the furniture in the family room. Article is full of the exact modern look I was going for. Their pieces are unique and high quality, without reflecting it in the price tag. I saw the Sven Sofa before we even moved in and knew I had to have it! I love the combo of kind of mid century meets modern clean lines. Ashley convinced me to try pairing it with the velvet Kits Sofa. I’ll admit, velvet made me nervous, but you guys it is amazing! The texture and pop it brings to the space is exactly what it needed.
When it cam to accent chairs I changed my mind about 1000 times. You may have seen the fun pink ones we originally went with. Article was so great to work with all my crazy changes! The Noah chairs were the perfect thing to finish off the seating. Gray is so trendy right now + a color I love, so they are for sure a favorite. The seating is all so comfortable while still giving a clean modern look. I love that we have the space to accommodate not just our people, but also to be able to host our extended family + friends.
Another favorite about this space is the light + brightness the windows bring. I had been warned about Utah’s dreary winters. Being used to so much sun in California, I knew I wanted to pull in a lot of light. The windows completely brighten everything up! You know i love my greens so the Fiddle Fig brings life to the space as well. A fun + easy way I like to add more texture + dimension is by using baskets instead of your typical planter pots. Something about them just feels more homey and cozy!
The coffee table, end tables, + rug (that I’m OBSESSED with) all came from AllModern. They really pull everything together. I love that the rug brings warmth to the space without being too harsh. These fun pillows from Tonic Living were the perfect final touch and created the cohesive + cozy space we were looking for.
Also I forgot I have been getting a ton of questions about our fan! It’s one of my favorite pieces of the room! I got it from Lighting Design and I worked with Mendee. She was seriously amazing!!! And helped me pick out so many other fixtures for the house as well. Honestly a great company to work with if your looking for anything lights!
It took a lot of trial and error + changing my mind a few times, but I could not be happier with how it turned out. I can’t wait to make memories + watch my little people grow up here in this home!!
