My Family Room

Ok, so Irene really has thrown me for a loop ~~thought yesterday was Friday...all day~~  It wasn't.  That would be today...
So, I thought I would show you my family room where you could find me and the rest of the family (and probably neighbors) during Irene.

Sectional sofa (I do Love me a sectional) covered in gray mohair.  The ever present club chair with a petrified wood side table and the round bronze coffee table.  Cozy and comfy.  I really do want a different coffee table, just am not sure what...

When we built our house 3 years ago I designed the focus wall.  I covered it in a gray grasscloth then had my carpenter guy make the overlapping grid pieces with matching wood from the floor.  Love how it turned out! With the dog and kids the sheepskin rugs are perfect.  Just throw them in the washing machine and fluff!  Oh, and in case you were wondering, those dang foo dogs did nada to ward off mean ole Irene (that's her rain drops on the back windows!)
That concludes The Week of the Family Room!  Hope you enjoyed and would love to hear your comments!


  1. Found your blog today through Blue Hydrangea. Love your family room. The focus wall is great! This may be a really dumb question but I see that your TV is over an open table. Where is all the junk like the satellite receiver, dvd player, sound system etc?? I also have my TV over an open table but all my junk is in plain sight and I hate it!

  2. Your family room is lovely. The wall is crazy good!!!

  3. Thank you! What is below the tv is actually just a floating shelf and all of the equipment is behind the club chair in a cabinet, hidden. You can get an "eyeball" that allows you to work the remote that way. Hope this helps!
