The other day I decided to try our family room a couple of different ways. I didn't buy anything new (except for the little bundle of white hydrangeas). I just "shopped" from other rooms in our house.
I started by bringing in the old farmhouse door, that was in the laundry room, for an added architectural detail.
For option one, I moved in a French-style armchair, grain sack pillow and ottoman.
I also tried this blue patterned rug for a touch of color.
I kept the blue ticking pillows and burlap pillows, because I love their simple farmhouse cheer. :)
For the second look, I exchanged the blue patterned rug for a more textured, oatmeal-colored rug. In place of the French chair, I put an old white chippy bench in front of the window.
So, here's look #2...
And here's look #1...
Which do you prefer?
It was fun to see this room in a different way. And, it felt good to change the look without spending money!
Don't be afraid to move things around, from room to room. You many find that certain pieces just fit better in unexpected places. A piece that may have just faded into the background in one room, can be the superstar in another! ;)
In the end, I chose function over form since this is the most used room in our home. Can you guess which look I kept?
Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you have a wonderful day...
