Family Room {Home Tour}

This is the room everyone hangs out in.  It is open to the kitchen and eat-in area.  With 17 foot high ceilings, this soaring room can handle some bold color and lots of furniture!

Moroccan Trellis Rug

I went through a phase where I wanted a modern americana color scheme.  Then I realized I have a love/hate relationship with red and could not live with it everyday in my family room.

I changed course by just swapping out the red for some lovely greens.  With the change the midwest summer color scheme was born.

    I thought it was neat that your family photo was the inspiration for your family room! It’s very clever and such a personal touch. Thank you for sharing.

    The rug on top of the beige wall-to-wall was genius. I didn’t even notice the walls were gray until my second look-see. They add warmth but are nice and neutral at the same time. Kudos!

    Can you recommend good places to find family/living room rugs at reasonable prices. TIA
