Alix and Mark wanted their home to feel comfortable and casual. There are "never any worries about anything getting messed up," Alix says.
The fireplace mantel is constructed of antique pine. The wood-plank walls and ceiling are all part of the lowcountry design you'll find throughout the home.
The soft gray paint is "Cloud White" by Benjamin Moore. Alix was inspired by designer Charlotte Moss's use of this paint in a home in New York and thought it the perfect color to incorporate into her family room.
The table with two lamps is an antique found in Thailand, as was the round table on the right.
