I’m linking up with Andrea today to show you my family room! It’s nothing special, but it’s always fun to take a peak inside someone’s house and see how they decorate! We have a fairly small house (well according to American blogger’s standards), but I like that we can keep it simple and it’s nice and cozy!
I tried taking pics without B in them, but this is life and how our living room is occupied! Our family room is open to the kitchen! I love! I plan on replacing this rug with another I have picked out. It’s more neutral and modern.
Our fireplace. Yep, that is a black cardboard piece against our fireplace. We were sick of cleaning up the mess when B would get in the fireplace! So we covered it. He’s probably fine now, but with another little one soon, might as well keep everything “baby proof.”
This is the sign I have on the mantle right now. I don’t actually really like it here with the other décor, but I placed it up there to take a picture for my shop listing and just kept it there (you can get this sign HERE). Need an inexpensive way to decorate a big space? Line 3 tall mirrors together. I think each one cost $5.00. I want to do something different with our mantle, but I’m a HUGE mirror fan and love that it takes up the height of this room.
I just cleaned out the top three shelves of our entertainment piece a few days ago. I wish I had a before…they were cluttered with junk.
This is B’s new pose! Another view into our family room (from kitchen).
We spend LOTS of time in here! I love this room and get compliments often of how it’s cozy and homey! That is EXACTLY how I want people to feel when they come over (and myself). I usually keep lamps on in here or the overhead light above the fireplace! And a candle is almost always burning on the bar! White carpet…yes, I hate, but re-carpeting or installing wood is NOT in our plans right now! We professionally clean at least once a year and go through many cans of carpet cleaner!
Where are the toys? We have a SMALL playroom (you’ll see soon) in sight of this family room where all the toys are, but we keep a small basket of books and toys underneath our coffee table. See it underneath the table between the two chairs?
Just a peak into our house. This room almost always stays this clean…I promise. Of course it gets messy, but it’s the one room I clean every day, multiple times a day! And vacuum every day! We’re in it all the time and I CAN’T stand when it’s a mess!
