i decided to share the most used room in my house, next to the kitchen. the "family" room! i live in a 2 sty home, that was built in 2001. in this part of the world, we refer to a family room that's on the second sty, as a "bonus" room. and that it is! a place to relax, play video games, eat in front of the tv, blog, edit/work (i'm a photographer), play, etc.....so it's a BONUS that it's relatively big and bright, close to bedrooms (which is cool if you have little kids and don't want to be seperated by 2 floors while they're sleeping and you're watching a movie). love that it's not a gloomy basement! i also love the vaulted ceiling!
but of course this is not what we started with!
my 3 babies!
feature wall color: benjamin moore's "gray shower"
beachy accents....of course! :)
no fabric is too precious in this room!
would love to have a dedicated space for my office but for now it's out in the open and is kinda nice since the computer's in a public place, which i like when my kids are using it. and i can work while my little one plays or watches tv. but someday....
still wanting to change the boring little "boob" lights!
(and baseboards/trim/doors...and, and, and...list never ends!)
inexpensive ikea desk top and picked the legs to match
found this toy basket at a garage sale for $5....love how big it is! hold a ton! and no the toys are not always put away like this!
well that's it....dark, forgiving colors for a family that LIVES in this room!
