Cynthia and her husband raised three teen-agers in this family room below...
(Don't judge. I know first hand what kids and dogs can do to furniture)! Now that her kids are grown, Cynthia, was ready to re-do their family room.
We used Pottery Barn's Performance fabrics on the furniture.
And the wood floor makes a big difference. The floors and walls are the largest spaces...really important!
Cynthia had all her accessories on the dining room table (she knew the drill). I shopped from there for her bookcases.
- Use photo frames that coordinate
- If the book jackets are too bright or clash, remove them (unless they are "first editions" or something).
- Group collections...see the pup shelf :)
- I don't object to faux plants if they look as real as this ivy.
It'a a good idea to put your television on a tilt arm when it's higher up.
Cynthia chose the wall color, Benjamin Moore Silver Gray (50% strength). I like to hang vertical pictures on narrow walls...
A new lamp and a rug is forthcoming.
Look at my new linen, charcoal striped shade that my husband installed for me.
Thanks for visiting!
