Family Room Reveal - Making What You Have Work

The Endearing Home
by The Endearing Home
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.

    How do you keep your furniture from moving around if not on rugs? Beautiful room. Love the buffalo plaid check as well. Do you consider it country?

    I love the clock over your fireplace! Do you remember where you bought it? Beautiful room! I would also like to know brand & color name you used on the walls. Thank you for your time.
