This summer I started redecorating the family room. It's a room we spend a lot of time in and I really wanted to update the tan walls, to a pale gray scheme. It's almost done, but I'm still adding some final touches.
It all began when I found this fabric at a local store. I loved it and it made our green couches work (which I don't love, but we aren't buying new ones in the near future). I liked the pale gray background and the chance to bring in some fun colors - mustard and a light purple.
My mom was super kind to sew all the curtain panels for me this summer.
We added a waffle textured fabric to the bottom and some white stripes to the top and bottom for interest.
We painted the room a lighter version of the fabric's background. Grays are hard to choose, but I got a couple sample cards and looked at them with the fabric under different lighting to ensure they really matched. Then I went even lighter because I wanted the room to feel really open.
Tomorrow I'll show you some pillows I made to add some fun to the room. At the end of the week I'll show you my favorite part of the room - a huge piece I painted.
Thanks for dropping in.
