Inspiration Workshop [Family Room]

Pin It
I took a few weeks off, but today I'm back to linking with Gussy over at Gussy Sews for this week's installment of Inspiration Workshop.

The Prompt {Family Room}

This prompt couldn't have come at a better time since we are currently in the process of re-doing the downstairs of our Townhouse, thanks to the fire in our laundry room.

Our home isn't huge, but it works for us.  Our Living Room IS our Family Room.  We have two little chicks, two dogs and a cat, so space as well as functionality is big for us.  It's also important that we are able to tidy up the day's chaos to allow ourselves to relax in the evening... here are some of my most recent Pinterest Pins with my family room inspiration.

I love the navy thrown in the mix here...
with the casual, yet crisp, feel of this room:

We have a living room wall that has a funny angle b/c of the stairway;
I plan to make it a Gallery wall:

Love the dark, but not too dark, wood floors in this room...
just like what I've been looking at:

Also, would love to add fun items, like this subway board,
to add more casual-ness to the gray/white scheme:

Finally, this is my fabric inspiration for the Family Room/Living room:

I really love Pinterest for making this whole re-model thing a little bit easier!

  1. Oh, these are lovely!

    Love the windows in the first one. I also love how clean and fresh it looks!

    The shelving in the second one is great. I'd definitely have lots of it in my family room.

    I'm a big fan of trees, so that artwork is amazing!

    Awesome choices!
