Family Room Design Plans

Well, it has begun.

Without much planning or thought in mind, Ryan and I already have mindlessly started tearing up our family room. The wood beams are down, the clunky oak built-ins are partially disassembled, and everything is generally a mess.

On the bright side, there’s no turning back now and my mind is running rampant with design and decor ideas.

We settled on our paint color – Sherwin Williams Alpaca – the same week that we moved in, and I still love it a month later since it is a warm neutral that will pair well with practically anything.

With the old built-in’s coming out, we are going to attempt to put new ones in. In a crisp white with lots of open shelving, they hopefully should help to brighten up the room and make it look a bit more spacious.

From there, the fun stuff begins – new furniture and decor! I think a cozy two-piece sectional is in our future with a couple additional arm chairs for extra seating. I’m not afraid to mix prints and metals these days, so I’m looking to combine a few key pieces to make the room feel cozy and traditional with a modern twist (hello bold black and striped rug!).

I’m getting especially antsy to share our progress and projects with all of you, so stay tuned!
