My favorite room is new to the house due to an addition a few years back. It is in the space where a bedroom used to be, but we knocked some walls out and created an open kitchen/dining/family room space. Here is a peek into the family room space.
I recently covered some old pillows, switched the rugs with another one in the house and put up some fall decorations. Including a Thanksgiving Village I created with my sister and grandmother as a child—now my children love to set it out each year!
I love the colors that come with Autumn—reds, oranges, and teals — vibrant and crisp! I just want to eat it up!
I moved out a heavy wooden office desk from the far wall and it took a few weeks of experimenting until I felt like the furniture had a good flow.
This room is my favorite because it’s the place where my husband naps on the couch, my kids do homework on the coffee table and we pass through its hub to every other room of our ranch style house.
I’m working on defining my design style. I seem to know more what I’m NOT, more than what I AM.
I am the family hoarder—I mean historian—and I tend to gather grandma’s lamps, grandpa’s cigar boxes and snippets of treasures and trinkets that others see as cast offs. I think these items are what makes this room my favorite. It is full of memories of the past and has room for the future!
I’m excited to participate in “The Inspired Room” book launch! I have my copy already and can’t wait to dive in!
