Family Room Reveal - Making What You Have Work

Decorating after a move into a new home can really be a challenge. What worked in your last home, does not always work as well in your new home. This is what happened to us.

We have a big wool traditional style rug that we love and it looked great in our last home with dark wood floors. Put that same rug with lighter wood floors and it looks very different.

Determined to make it work I pulled the colors from the rug (black, ivory, red and green) and used them throughout the room. I love lots of texture and shine in a room so I also added several baskets, silver accessories, weathered pieces, burlap and linen.

Hope you will stop by my blog for the full tour, lots of pictures to share.

    Yes me too Christa V and mine is the worst.....so I understand it all. She did a beautiful job and I too am on the bandwagon about the Buffalo Gingham drapery panels. I wanted them for my bedroom in a pale blue, but could not find AND/OR afford them, so

    Love your color choice on the walls and the drapes. The whole room is so inviting and looks like a room to really be lived in.
