So, just thinking out loud here. My family room and kitchen really don’t get along. They aren’t a horrible match, but I really want to marry the two spaces better than they are today. When we moved into our house 6 1/2 years ago, I was fixated on the brown and blue craze. It’s not that I don’t like it anymore, but when I picked the paint color, I didn’t pick well. The blue in there is a bit too“baby” blue. Maybe it was because I was 9 months pregnant when we moved here, I don’t know. I do know that it’s not working for me anymore.
Anyhow, I’m currently onto the grey craze. I’m thinking a very light grey will work well with the cream walls in the kitchen creating a better flow. I’ve been going in circles in my head about this little refresher for the family room and have changed my mind a few (million) times about the vibe in there. One thing is for sure, it needs some contrast. There’s a whole lot of brown going on in here.
Brown, brown and more brown!
I could go on and on about the ideas flying around my head, but instead of going in circles about my indecision, I’ll just give you a peek of what it’s like today. And if I get my act together, there may even be some updates to share by 2013.
Pictures above the TV are taken out of an old calendar.
I’m a Target girl and it shows…pillows, throws, curtains, poppy art print, candlesticks, bird and even the area rug are ALL from my favorite one stop shop – Target!
And of course we had to add some family in the family room by adding these large framed photos of the kids.
We chose leather couches for its easy maintenance. I love that it will just look better with age and any mishaps simply wipe off.
As usual, rocks from our vacations on Lake Michigan make an appearance.
That’s it for now.
Thanks for stopping by today!
