I’ve done a bunch of fun home tours this Fall, but I am so excited to show you this one!
Over a year ago our area had some pretty bad flooding.While we aren’t in an area that floods, a bunch of us had gotten water that had never gotten water before. Needless to say, after living in a very cramped way for the last year and a half, we finally have our family room back!!! It’s been a slow an steady redo after the last year and a half, but I am so happy to have the TV out of the living room! So today I am going to share those two spaces with you!! It will be fun to show you a new room you’ve never seen before!
First, here is our much emptier living room with out the TV! It’s so nice to have so much space when we walk in!
We were able to bring my grandmother’s buffet out of storage. I just love how it looks!
And it’s nice to have a quiet place to hang out.
And I just can’t believe how much extra room we have!
The kids are super happy that the family room is finished. They love to get home from school and play Wii or just go hang out.
I think they are happy to have a bit of space too!
My main goal was to make it all about family history and us… and to add in some fun! I like to call the theme “well traveled”. Part of my goal was to not spend a lot on furniture either! Much of it came from storage of things I had picked up here and there for when the space did get put back together!
I’ve been picking up things here and there like this letter “r” and this number 5.
I brought in some old steamer trunks in for a side table.The some amazing curtains are from Cost Plus World market.
I adore how bright and cheerful they are! I mean this is a sub-level, so anything to keep the gloominess away that seems to go with spaces like that is worth it!
And my favorite part is the collage wall. All of the pictures are of our grandparents as children and in their young lives. I’ll share more on that later.
I have these amazing lamps from Birch Lane*,which I just love.
These pillows are also from Birch Lane. I love how the mustard sofa’s look with the navy and white pattern.
We still have some little things to do like all of the trim work and a few doors, but for me, it was “done” enough to move back into!
I have maps and globes because all of our grandparents were immigrants and I really wanted to kind of emphasize that family global feeling!
Barney Fife on the back wall is NOT a family member. It’s a signed photo some one bought my husband and he kind of fits right in!
I also want it to be fun since the kids really spend the most time down here. So I added this on the wall just for them!
Kinda fun! I like it.
Thank you so much for stopping by! It was fun to have a new space to show you!
You can head on over to Dimples and Tangles next!
Oh , and my Holiday book is on pre-order! It comes out in a few weeks. reserve your copy now!!!!
