"Kid Friendly" Family Room Reveal

Hi there!  I was finally able to run over to see one of my fave clients on Friday to snap a few photos of the family room that we completed a few months back and I thought I would share it with you! 

Here it is!!!

My clients are a young family with two little girls.  The goal was to create a room that was sophisticated but very kid friendly.

Aqua, Gray and Yellow Family Room

The design plan included a cheetah print rug because it would be so forgiving if anyone spilled food or beverages on it.  Sourced at a local carpet shop, we had a custom size cut and bound in black tape. We chose a large sectional from Pottery Barn in a dark fabric (again, to hide any potential spills or stains) and then added brightness with a tufted aqua velvet ottoman from World Market and pillows from Etsy.

I love to use polyvore.com to create design boards for my clients.  It really helps people visualize how things are going to look.  I sent my client this board with my decorative pillow suggestions for the sectional and she was able to purchase them directly from the fabulous pillow fabricators on etsy.

The room called for a large media cabinet to run the length of one wall -- so we got two cabinets from Ikea and then mounted some fabulous hardware on the front of the doors to glam them up.

Isn't it amazing how hardware can make such a difference?

One other little jewel that we added to the room was a pretty light fixture from Shades of Light.  

The ceilings are 8 feet high and we selected this trellis chandelier because it was light and airy looking. We hung it close to the ceiling with only one or two links of chain so that it would look like it was meant to be a semi-flush mount fixture.  It's one of my favorite additions to the room!

The other light source comes from two lamps on tall cabinets that flank the windows on either side in the back of the room.  You can see one of them behind the sofa in this photo.

The lamps came from Pottery Barn.

The room was completed with a "Tray of the Day".  (Follow me on instagram @pricestyleanddesign to see a variety of other tray vignettes).  Trays are so fun to style!
