Family Friendly Living Room Makeover
A reminder: I’m participating in the ‘One Room Challenge’ (ORC), hosted by Linda from Calling It Home, that challenges home and design bloggers to make over a room in their house from start to finish in 6 weeks. We have decided to tackle our living room. Here’s what you missed: The Before and Vision , The Design Plans, Tile and Personalization, and the Wood Wall Installation.
I made it! I somehow made it! Against all odds, starting halfway through the One Room Challenge, I somehow pulled it all off by the skin of my teeth.
Today I put the finishing touches on our family friendly living room, and I have to say…it turned out even better than I’d imagined.
After adding our reclaimed wood wall, the space is light and airy…
But still colorful and comfortable – just the way we like it.
After all, this is where our family gathers, and I wanted it to be welcoming to everyone.
As you can see, I did end up adding my antique curtains. I think they add the perfect pop of color and charm this space needed. Best of all, I love that they have a story.
I also was able to use that vintage fabric I fell in love with, several months back, to make a few pillows.
It all fits perfectly with our existing furniture and scheme, as you can see here.
I have to be honest and share that mirror is just a clumsy placeholder, since we plan to hang our flat screen there. As I mentioned, it’s a family space, and our family needs movie nights!
Oh, and my husband added his big ‘ol leather chair back into the mix after I took these photos. It’s all about finding the right balance between comfort and aesthetics! We are real people living in a real space, after all.
