Our family room is the heart of our home. We have always made sure that as a family, this is where we hang out, watch television, play video games, and entertain our guests.
As soon as I saw this house, I knew that this home had the ultimate family room because it was an open concept including the kitchen area! Not only that, but it was the largest one we have ever had!
It took me a while to decide on the decor for this room. This was going to be a real family room furniture purchase, and I wanted it to be awesome
The one time we bought a new, quality sofa to replace the cheap one we had when we were first married, got lost during a move, thanks COVAN Moving Company, we NEVER saw it again! Oh yeah, it was only 3 months old.
Lesson to be learned, if you move often, don’t spend too much money on furniture, you never know if you will ever see it again or what shape it may be in when it arrives.
I knew that I wanted to use the newest green and blue color combination, I was so over the red, gold, and sage green!!
Living in Hawaii with all the tropical decor, burnt me out on that color combo. It was time to upgrade and update! When I saw this chair, I knew I had to have it.
Not only was the fabric exactly what I wanted, but the chair and ottoman were ridiculously comfortable. Comfort is a must!!
I looked everywhere for the right fabric and one day my mom asked me if I had gone into Lazy Boy. Lazy Boy? Why would I go there shopping for hip, cool, trendy furniture? I mean, don’t they just sell recliners for Grandpas? Oh no! I was amazed at how many current fabric patterns and furniture styles they had to offer.
Isn’t that just the cutest chair. I love it! I love how modern it is in style. I love it even more paired with my authentic kimchee pot from Korea.
In addition to comfortable seating, I knew the room had to be cheerful, warm, and inviting! It had to be a room that we wanted to be in. How can the heart of your home not be all of that? I added lamps, rugs, candles, and other home decor accessories.
I just love how this room turned out! It is definitely the heart of our home. It makes me happy. It is a great example of transitional style home decor.
Of course we still have some things to add, hopefully crown molding and hardwood floors will come next!
I used Sherwin Williams Gateway Gray at 50% to match the kitchen.
What is the heart of your home? What makes it the heart of your home? I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
