family room

While I love industrial carpet, mental ward green and florescent lights as much as the next girl, we knew this would be a room where we would spend a lot of time, so it needed to be a bit more...perky.

...and After.
We built out the shelves in the built-ins to look a bit more substantial, added some pot lights (we need to add more) and replaced the carpet with area rugs. And then some.

  1. What a difference! Recessed lighting can make such a statement!

  2. I love how realistic, yet stylish your rooms are! Great job!

    OMG Elizabeth, what about getting your home in a magazine ?? I can help you there :)) It really needs to be seen by many many more.

  4. Ok HOW have I not looked through your whole house tour before??? I LOVE your home!!! I've only seen parts of it, and then today was like "oh duh, she's got the whole tour right here". What a transformation!! Oh and also how have I missed that you have twins also?! (I'm assuming- you said "girls") How old are they? Mine are a year and a half. {If we've talked about this before and I'm spacing it I'm going to be really embarrassed!!}

  5. This redo is very 'Divine Design - ish' - no really, it looks like Candice Olsen did it.

  6. LOVE that navy and white chair and the POP in this room! I'm your newest follower! So glad I've found you
