First I would like to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday! It was great! Like seriously!

I decided to go ahead and show you the family room painted Sherwin William’s Accessible Beige. Let me warn you, this room is a work in progress. But I figure, what’s a after without a terrible before so here goes…


This room is sure to be a challenge.


I have the fireplace, a window, and a door on one wall.


Then on the other wall, I have the powder room and the laundry closet that I painted the same color as the wall to somewhat mask it. I do need to paint the door to the bathroom as with a few other doors in the house!



You may have noticed the fabric on the sofa and against the wall… I’ll talk more about that later!




There is a lot that is needed to make this room functional for our family. Storage, seating, and more furniture are the major needs and I’ll start talking more about that. Tomorrow I’ll share my inspiration for the room and you’ll also see the color scheme. So there you have it, my beige family roomWinking smile

Lots of challenges with doors and windows, but I'm confident that you've come up with a solid plan. Love the fabric you selected.

You always have to start somewhere right! Loving that Ikat fabric, excited to see what you use it for!

Loving those fabrics my dear and your sofa is almost the same as that one I ordered before Christmas! Where did you get yours? We've been having some "issues" with ours. I know I haven't shared much on my kids room project but I'm also redoing my family & dining room (and my bedroom). Who knows, maybe I'll finish those rooms first.

Can't wait to see how you tackle all of your families needs in this space
