Monday I shared with you my family room painted Sherwin Williams “Accessible Beige” . Tuesday, you were able to see the color scheme and the fabric that I’m using. Today I wanted to talk about the needs for the space.
Walking down the steps to the family room to the right you will see the door to the backyard and about a third of wall space.
Against that wall I think some sort of storage would be perfect. Right now I’m thinking either the closet maid cubes found at Target
Or the Expidit bookcase turned on its side
The sofa will sit there where it is and I’m on the look out for a coffee table
I like the Hemnes coffee table from IKEA is a good choice because of the shelf that I can place baskets on (more storage!).
You may be wondering everything is coming from IKEA, that’s because of this
I also need more seating so I’m considering bringing in two tullsta chairs. I would love to have them slipcovered! I may have to look into that.
Moving on to the where my “vintage” t.v and computer sit, I will be removing both of those to place a wall unit there for a 50 inch flat screen…
Usually the t.v would be placed over the fireplace, but this is a small space and
we the boys need more room to play the Wii!
Other items that I have not decided on include
rug (found one I like at west elm)
ceiling light fixture (another ceiling fan)
what to put over the fireplace
I’ll talk more about this space next week!
I have a question to ask: What do you guys think of accent walls? I’ve been looking at the color of the space and feel like the wall where the t.v and computer currently sits would look cool painted a nice shade of blue. What do you think?
