Today, I am sharing some updates we have made to our great room. It is a nice space, roomy and full of light. My kids basically live in this room!
When we moved in, we totally gutted this room! I decorated it once right after our big renovation. Here is the room before the updates:
Many of the elements have stayed the same...paint color, rug, sectional, and TV unit.
This couch rocks! Perfect for family living with young children. When it needs replacing, I may go lighter, but for now...it is just right! I added some color with throw pillows and patterned lampshades.
The main addition to this room is the leather chair. We had this is our first house, right in the living room. When we moved here, the chair found its way to the basement, which is fully finished. It was just wasting time down there. Steve and I decided to move it up and see if it worked. We love it in this corner! (Keeping it real...notice the iPhone charger under the chair!)
Here is the other side of the room, which includes a dinette and wet bar!
One of the things I am learning as I decorate my house is that I often have treasures in the rooms around me. I am learning to shop my own house first and then buy later! That approach has helped me create a great room that suits my family!
