A Peek into My Family Room

January 12, 2016

We’ve been in our new house for over a year now.

On one hand it feels like we just moved in… but on the other, it feels like we’ve been here for years. We can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Since then we’ve loaded the vast cupboards, cabinets and closets we swore we couldn’t possibly ever fill. Bah! It’s like we took that as a challenge. We won lost? Not sure which.

Back when the movers tirelessly lugged the giant semi of Hiveley-goods into our house last year, one made this comment. “Sooo, let me get this straight… ALL of the furniture goes down into the basement or up in the kid’s loft area?” Umm. Yep. “I guess Mr. Jason will be buying rooms of furniture.” 

This was kinda true. I didn’t want any of the old couches, chairs and decor messing up my brand new house. Throughout the last 12 months I’ve slowly gained piece by piece. I have a long way to go to be done… but are you ever really done decorating. It’s an ever evolving process that ebbs and flows with your lifestyle and mood. Right?

My look? Not entirely sure. I was going for Rustic Glam {old reclaimed wood, distressed leather and metals mixed with metallics, mirrors, rich velvet and draping crystals}. After taking these photos, I came to the realization that it’s not the vision I’d started with last year. I’ve begun to make it so eclectic that really my only theme is TEXTURE. I’m clearly in love with anything textured.

Any thoughts on what this look would be called? It’s not for everybody, but it is perfectly lovely for me. For the time being anyway.

{3 side notes: 1) I’m still on the lookout for a large area rug to go under the cow-hide but haven’t found my vision. I will be patient and in the mean time, I’ll save up because I’m sure it’s gonna cost me.  and 2) The red pillow pops are just here throughout Christmas and Valentines day.. then red is gone from my palette. The gray and cream pillows come back in. And lastly 3) STILL nothing nailed to my walls! I’m stuck with what I want my statement wall to ‘say’. It’s a giant space. An amazing gray canvas. Yet I’m strangely at a loss. Why is that?! }Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-14 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-3 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-6 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-7 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-4 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-22 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-23 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-13 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-9 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-11 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-12 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-2Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-10 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-8 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-15 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-16 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-17 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-18 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-20 Inside my Family Room - Eclectic rustic glam-19

  1. Love love love the room. You have serious decorating chops. But maybe mount the TV to the front of one of the built-in shelving units. This would make the beautiful fireplace more prominent.

    1. Oh Thanks Carrie! I WISH I had say over that hideous TV… but I don’t. That’s one of the few battles that my husband won. I said absolutely NO TV over my fireplace…. he said YES. I got a few other things so I caved on this. He insisted I’d like it bc it’s Apple TV so I could make it artwork or scroll through pretty pictures, etc. I never do that…soooo. 🙂 Sorry for the long-winded reply. You can tell it was a bit of a sore spot with me. 😉
