{Inspiration Workshop! – family room}

It’s Thursday {just one more day until I fly out for Blog Sugar!}… time to be inspired! I’m glad you’re here ~ read on for this week’s prompt and then scroll down to link up your post ;]

THE PROMPT // This week’s prompt is FAMILY ROOM! Growing up, our family room was our most lived-in room of the whole house. Naps, TV {woo hoo! Full House, Growing Pains, the TGIF line-up}, birthday parties, reading, puzzle making, Christmas morning… we did every thing together as a family in the family room. ♥ And I know Zack’s childhood was the same way, which is why I love *our* family room so much.

Our family room is a place for gathering, reading, playing, laughing, napping ;]

In the above right photo we have a mirror propped against the wall ~ I love the angle it shows.

Zack & I watch movies in our family room. We work in here, talk on the phone in here {hi mom!}, play card games — eat dinner, drink morning coffee. Most afternoons Bauer naps; I work :]

Clearly Bauer loves the couch — hah!

Didn’t my MIL do an A W E S O M E job recovering our couch? I luff it!

The home we live in was built in 1900. There’s so much character inside each room, with the detailing and 9′ ceilings and stained glass window accents and dark hardwood floors. Zack and I really love this house… When we first moved in it was a little hard to decorate, but with the help of color and lots of blankets & pillows we’ve made it into a cozy home. Honestly, I love it a lot more when it’s a little messy and lived-in.

Most of our furniture was gifted to us from our families. The end tables are from my great aunts {we painted them white}, the couch was my parents when they were first married {we recovered it in this awesome red tweed fabric}, the teal chair in the corner {you can hardly see it} was given to us from Zack’s mom {no you can’t have it}. The bookshelf is from Ikea, the ottoman from Bed Bath & Beyond. Then our accent pieces are either from Ikea, Pier 1 or Target.

Or the pet shop ~ hi little cream doggy bone on the rug.
