Home tour and family room reveal
HI everyone! Welcome if you are coming over from the beautiful home of Jones Design Company as apart of Linsday’s Fall tour (in fact to see the entire tour for the beginning start there.)!
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!

Gorgeous space! That French buffet is swoonworthy and the trunks as tables. Love it all!
Wow, those curtains are nice in the WM website, but they are GORGEOUS with the sun shining through them. I’ll bet you’re thrilled with your choice! Thanks for sharing your beautiful rooms with us!! Happy Friday!
Oh my gosh I’m so sorry about the flooding! You’ve done a great job pulling it all together! Congrats on your book! 🙂
Everything looks fantastic. Love the warm feeling and colors. I know all about flooding but we got it in our finished basement. I hope it never happens to you again!
You have a gorgeous home! I love the rug and the styled buffet! So pretty!
I love Barney, the deer and the fact that you have more space to spread out!!
Oh I love that you have added family history in a gallery wall. This is so perfect. What a fabulous space.

Just went to Amazon and preordered your book Creatively Christmas. Hope to get it by end of Oct. I have a gift shop and can’t wait to try some of the ideas 🙂
Thanks Lois! Let me know if you are interested in ordering multiple copies for the shop!!!
Oh Jen it is beautiful. I love all your special unique touches you did in the room too. Your pictures and the I love you dearly is super sweet. I am excited to come to the book signing on October 18th. I am so excited to get a signed copy of your book. Congrats. You are so deserving of this honor. I am going to try and make a girls night out of it and bring some friends. Should be fun.
It will be great to see you Kris!
Everything looks so lovely……..I especially love your Grandmother’s buffet and how you worked it into your room.
So fall and so beautiful! I love all of the seasonal touches 🙂
