Category: Family Room

Good Morning! I can’t believe a week from today is Christmas Eve! I feel like the older I get the more quickly December flies by! Today we are popping in to share our family room with it’s simple Christmas touches. I originally was going to put a Christmas tree in here but ended up deciding to go with a simple garland and lights over the mantel, my favorite nativity set on the right side of the bookshelves and my favorite Mary and Joseph figurine in the bookshelves on the left side.

This room has really made a lot of progress since we moved in this winter but the one thing that we’ve really noticed since moving in is that we’d like to have more seating in here. Functionally speaking it works well having the sofa face the fireplace and help define the family room area but when there is a game on TV it means we kept coming back to the idea of adding either a sectional or a sofa with a chaise lounge.

One of the things I was most unsure of when we first saw this house was this wet bar area. I knew that I didn’t want to keep it as is, but wasn’t sure if we should rip it out entirely or try to update it and turn it into a coffee bar.
