Family room




When I posted the other day to show you the before and after of this room a commenter noticed that it was not a most updated shot as the ceiling wasn't completed , true, I was lazy and did not get the room all up to its Sunday best look , well this morning it was all set the couch was freshly cleaned and the room was tidy and flooded with the nicest light , so we had a little photo shoot . Lots of angles to show you , I am really happy with this room , there are many bigger family rooms , but this is just right for me , it appeals in every way , how could I live with popcorn ceiling again.






Great news , I recently bought a small steam cleaner for the carpet and upholstery , I used it on my floral settee and it came out nice and clean , it also cleaned up a huge juice spill out of the kitchen rug and the dog barf on my other rug, hello the whole downstairs is wood and tile and everyone messes the rugs, but not a problem now that I have my very own steam cleaner it has been worth every peenny already , little green bissel ....

Hi Chris,
Gorgeous room! I love it, and you did a great job (so much work...your chest must swell with pride when you look at it). Thanks for posting the ceiling>>See? I can never get enough. I got one of those "spot bots" when we got our puppy, you set it and it runs itself..the best thing ever,. (they should sell it to you with the dog.. .or send them home from the hospital with the baby...)

Your room is charming. The millwork, the floor, the ceiling, the vintage fan and the perfect wash of color on the walls. A beautiful blend of a clean, beachy, modern yet very charming room. Love it and love your blog!

Looks like something out of a book. I'm jealous you now have a steam cleaner. Our living room couches have turned out to be dog hair and dirt magnets. Grrrr.

It looks so pretty! You don't have to have a huge fancy room for it to look beautiful and I prefer smaller and cozy! Isn't that so true about the animals and the rugs a whole floor and they head for the rug to dirty up. Thanks for the tip on the steam cleaner, I will diffently check it out. What's up with the weird comments up above? Stop by if you get a chance I put up the curtains(lace) let me know what you think.

Looks great! Love the beadboard on the ceiling! How hard was that to do??

Chris said...

The lighting is just beautiful! What a perfect time for a photo shoot! It all came together soooo beautifully, Chris. You should be proud!

Liz said...

Totally dreamy Chris. Just so perfect. Please fly down and help me with my house!

PS... I need a steam cleaner then. Every time Mabel barfs she heads straight to my white rug.

Danielle said...

Looks fantastic Chris and very comfy...you should be very pleased with it.

I love the new look. I usually don't comment, but merely lurk. I have been in love with your settee since the first time I stumbled on it in your blog. I have been searching high and low on CL to find one similar. What search words should I be using? I have a tiny apartment and my 3 cushion Ektorp takes up so much room (but it is comfy, I know - and we have the same pink and green stripe), so I was thinking that a similar sette would be perfect, and yours even looks like it would be comfortable.
Thanks!
