A sectional big enough for the entire family makes a great spot for movie night, lounging and afternoon naps. Choose one in a durable fabric, preferably in a color that will hide dirt and other messes.
I love the idea of using this cradle rocking chair in a family room. It's perfect for story time and cuddling. Small children would enjoy rockin' out themselves!
This Flor rug makes the space. Bold colors and stripes pack a playful punch, while a soft pile encourages floor play. Stubborn stains are no match for this rug; simply remove individual tiles for easy cleaning or replace ones that are beyond repair. (Remember to buy a few extra tiles!)
I like to hang flatscreens over sleek, low-profile media consoles. Fill the console with TV and video game accessories to keep tech clutter to a minimum.
I'd plop this modern day bean bag on the floor for kiddos to lounge in and play on. The thinner black and white stripes add yet another pattern to the room.
Ceiling fans promote proper air circulation, but sometimes get a bad rap for not being aesthetically pleasing. I prefer fans with a simple, modern design and light for a fun and functional solution.
Make cleanup a cinch with this chunky bookcase. Store books, board games and toys on its shelves, and use baskets and fabric bins to corral clutter.
A light gray-blue on the walls will keep the room feeling light and happy, but is a more kid-friendly option than bright white.
Candid black and white photography prints, whether taken yourself or store bought, add to the casual family-oriented atmosphere.
I like adding throw pillows to sectionals to break up all that couch. This patterned pillow is a modern take on the traditional black-and-white stripe and picks up on the stripes in the rug.
Switch out matching end tables and table lamps for a tripod floor lamp placed near the sofa. Less furniture means more room for playing!
Warm teak stools provide additional seating when entertaining and stand up to everyday abuse.
A cable-knit throw is great for curling up with a good book or snuggling on chilly evenings. The gray-blue hue goes along with the wall color.
Keep board games nearby for family game night. This colorful game would even look great left out! Just make sure to avoid small pieces with younger children.
Contrasting pillow patterns steer the room clear of a one-dimensional, matchy-matchy look. Pair ikat patterns with stripes for an unexpected twist.
