Help with our Family room! Family of 8 with no direction!
December 31, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have lived int he same home for 20 years, raised 5 kids (12-24) and currently a 6 year old grandson, hence the bed in the family room. I purchased a 100 year old table for $100 15 years ago and although it is an amazing piece of furniture, there is hardly space for it. Still, I cant bare to part with it. We have money set aside to buy a new couch and I don't want to make a mistake in the remodeling of the room because it will be another 20 years before this opportunity arrises! We watch TV in this space, the kids have friends over, we sit by the fire while our grandson plays legos on the floor. The room is a weird rectangular shape and awkward to make a comfortable seating area conducive to our needs. It doesn't feel warm and inviting. Its mish mashed together furniture as well as decoratively. I desire a warm coastal feel....beachy. We are originally from the West Coast and being by the water offers us a feeling of serenity. I'd like the walls to be a sea foam blue, and need an alternative to the 1970's recessed lighting, I love photography, so a place for lots of pictures of the ones we love. PLEASE, I am creatively STUCK and with limited resources I need help!
