House Tour: Family Room

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

One of my guilty pleasures about meeting new people: taking a tour of their home.  I am such a fan of home decor and I love seeing how others style their own.  It’s been a while since you’ve sneaked a peek at my house, so I thought today, I’d give you a tour of our family room.

I’ve got five main colors going on in here: robin egg blue, avocado green, white, brown, and gold.  In our family room, you’ll find polka dot and stripe chairs, mixed with large paisley print valences hanging from a trio floor length windows.  Combining different prints adds a lot of texture, warmth, and playfulness to a room.  But here’s the thing – you must keep it in the main color palette.

To me, a room is all about finding and displaying the accessories you can not live without.  I love my little white rhinoceros that lives on the shelf, the pretty blue McCoy pottery I’ve collected over the years which holds Christmas cacti that not even I can kill, and the beautiful bezel mirrors I discovered on super sale at Target a year ago.  But the accessory I love the most:  the 3 1/2 foot letter ‘Y’ I bought from a thrift shop.  I was told, it used to be the ‘Y’ in the sign of a bakery shop which went out of business.  But when I first set eyes on my ‘Y’, it was a mess.  There was rust, and dents, and bolts that made David’s hands bleed when he removed them.  But through it all, I could see with a little love, a lot of elbow grease, and a coat of glossy white paint, my ‘Y’ would add a fun touch of personalization to our family room.  And it did.

I hope my guilty pleasure is yours as well, and you enjoy the tour of my family room.
