I think I'm finally done enough with my family room to post a few pictures of it. The pictures are terrible because it has been so dark and rainy outside today AND also because my camera stinks AND also because I probably don't really know how to use it very well. Now that I've gotten all those disclaimers out of the way, here is the family room before. And after.
There wasn't anything wrong with the family room before. There were just too many colors happening. And it wasn't really our style. Here are a few before shots taken at different times. You can see we had carpet at one point. And the fireplace wall was open too!!
Neutral wall color, new pillows/art/rug. Looking for one more sofa pillow in the perfect apple green color. You can never have too many throw pillows! I'm also thinking some sort of ottoman or coffee table might be nice in here? But it might be too much....
We have so much more room with the television over the fireplace. We still plan on adding decorative molding to the columns and building a shelf over the components for more storage.

A tall bookcase houses baskets for dvds and magazines
And that completes our tour of the family room! We love the way it turned out. It matches our personalities and suits our needs perfectly just the way a family room should! Thanks for stopping by to check it out!!
