Prospect Update: Family Room
This Prospect Update: Family Room is another completed space in our renovation project of this wonderful home. Click here to see the completed Foyer & Dining Room and here to see the completed Study. This homeowner loves color so we brought in blues and greens for the wall color in the other two spaces. For the Family Room, we decided to keep the space neutral and accent with blues and greens. The wall color is Sherwin Williams’ Tony Taupe (SW7038). The decorative drapery panels in a leaf motif fabric frame the view and accentuate the room’s height.
This is a large room, and the homeowner’s husband is tall so we went with an oversized sofa that would fill the wall and allow him to take naps! We flanked the sofa with two tables in a rich dark wood. The one to the left is the perfect size to set a drink on and display some accessories without visually blocking the entrance to the room. The oversized table to the right of the sofa fills the corner nicely. We added an interesting lamp and oversized accessories to complete the look. The subtle artwork in a rustic frame ties in our accent colors while keeping with the neutral feel in the room.
The key to using all neutral fabrics for your upholstered furniture is to bring in lots of pattern and texture to keep the room interesting. This club chair in a marbleized pattern with nailhead detail works wonderfully with the sofa fabric. The wing chair and ottoman are perfect for this reading corner. I love the texture and subtle geometric pattern in the fabric. We added a unique side table, another great lamp, and subtle but striking artwork to complete the vignette.
The homeowners removed a large built-in next to the fireplace and had a new surround made which allowed us to reposition the television along this wall. We added a small swivel chair in a teal chenille fabric for additional seating. We paired it with a marble top drink table and a stunning floor lamp. We topped the french door leading to their Screened Porch with a valance in the same fabric as the drapery panels.
We kept the mantle simple so that each accessory could make a statement.
In lieu of a coffee table, we selected this oversized ottoman in a taupe leather. The fun tray makes it functional. We finished off the room with the perfect rug. The subtle colors and pattern tie together our color palette and add interest.
I know you will agree that this neutral Prospect Update: Family Room is anything but boring! Enjoy!
