Our Family Room

Β We finally finished the rest of our family room just in time to give it a total holiday makeover after Thanksgiving this week! The first thing we picked out in this room was the charcoal sofa & chair from Jonathan Louis furniture, we really wanted to go with the dark colors but knew we would have to keep everything else light and airy to balance it out. It’s so comfy and has been so durable with the kids! We layered two rugs from RugsUSA, added in a thrifted mirror and console table, and finally settled on a coffee table to finish off the space. We gave our fireplace a little makeover by painting the brick white, I almost loved it as it was before, but the salmon tones were just too… salmon. The final piece of the puzzle was adding our gallery wall!! We worked with the amazing folks at Framebridge and I can’t wait to share more about the process & some tips/tricks for putting one together yourself! We still need to hang curtains & change out the ceiling fan, and we have some built ins in the back corner that still need refinished. But for now, all I can think about is where to put the Christmas tree!

    Looks amazing!! I’ve been looking at this same jute rug! Is it soft enough to sit and play games, etc on with little ones?

      Yes! This jute rug is much softer than other jute rugs I have felt, you can definitely sit on it or kids can crawl on it and it is not scratchy πŸ™‚

    Did you paint the fireplace yourself? Any tips? I’ve been debating doing it but I actually love it as is but would love it White more! I’m afraid I may regret it if I do!

      We did! It’s such a hard call because once you do it, you can’t really un-paint it. If you love it, maybe consider if you can paint walls or the mantle? But we really do love it white, the first coat was a bear, but the rest went on really well! πŸ™‚

    Everything turned out lovely! So exciting to have everything come together! I couldn’t help but notice the pretty glass vases on the fireplace brick and the awesome candles near the tv…how do you keep 3 littles from breaking them or from hitting their heads on the coffee table? ! (Or is it just my babes that do these things? !) πŸ˜‰

      Normally we keep a cover on our fireplace for safety, I took it off for the photos and if we have guests over after the kids are in bed we take it off and slide it under the couch πŸ™‚ They don’t mess with the vases or candles, although Claire totally unloaded an entire package of baby wipes and dropped them one by one into the vase the other day.

    Jessica, I absolutely Love your blog and instagram posts. Question about your coffee table. Did you stain the top wood a different color? On West Elm’s site it looks much lighter, but I love the color of yours. Just curious if the photo on West Elms sign is misleading to the actual color πŸ™‚ Thanks!

      We do, they are all inside the door on the left. We have a power strip inside, all of the boxes are plugged into it, and then we drilled a hole out the back for the power strip (which is white) to come down and plug in. You can barely see it, but it’s there πŸ™‚ The cable boxes all work without the door being opened, but the DVD player does not, so if we watch movies we have to leave it open for the remote to work. Hope that is helpful!!
