A while back my husband and I made the decision that we wanted to do some remodeling in our home. Nothing too dramatic, no tearing down walls or anything like that but instead repainting and making our home more light, airy and bright.
When we bought our home back in 2006 we painted all of our walls very dark colors. It looked rich and elegant but one day we woke up and decided we were over it. We wanted it to be a fun and bright home and started with our master bedroom.
You may have seen our paint color reveal but now our bedroom is finally done and I can’t wait to share the final result. We’ve had a few family events that have put our bedroom behind our original timeline. Stay tuned on that, reveal to come very soon!
We have now moved on to our next room we wanted to redesign because I was given the amazing opportunity to work with La-Z-Boy to redo our family room!
Now, our family room is nice and all but it’s dark, like real dark and there are no fun colors or patterns. We painted two huge cathedral ceiling walls a dark burgundy with a suede finish. It looked pretty and everything but at the end of the day it was just so dreary and we wanted to make a change. Not only to our paint colors but to our furniture. Everything was just so dark.
Here are some photos of our family room now –
Our current couch, pretty beat up over the past years, it’s misshapen and stained.
The pretty BUT entirely too dark walls. I’m ready for something more modern and fun!
My new goal for the family room is a sophisticated, modern but fun room with soothing colors and pops of bright fun colors tied in with touches that are chic and modern.
Most of all I want it to be functional! I want more seating for when we have guests over and lots of storage to tuck away toys, blankets and such.
After all, this is where we spend most all of our time – playtime, movie nights and just plain hanging out so we want it to be a place where we are comfortable and fun.
I recently visited my new Metro Detroit La-Z-Boy store and sat down with the designers and went over how I wanted our new family room to look. I’m very excited to share all the details with you and what they designed for us.
So, say goodbye to this dark and dreary room and stay tuned for my new and MUCH improved bright, modern and fun family room.
