Colorful Fun Family Room

Just love this room!
But I started thinking about it. The room would actually be quite boring/normal/uninteresting with all the neutral colors, if it were not for the accents.
1. Long striped pillow in fun colors.
2. Small red stripes in the top quarter of the curtain - drawing the eye upward.
3. Christmas decor - fun brightly decorated tree and greenery.
4. Pretty fabric (although quite neutral) on the matching chairs.

Eclectic rooms tend to be "fun" or "family friendly" rooms. I love the use of mis-matched lamps- even a white shade near a cream shade! How brave!

Here is one more angle of the same room.........

(ALMOST makes you want a little boy for Christmas, doesn't it?)

Here is a cute ribbon and ornament idea ....................

And here are some more ribbons. (They used an embroidery hoop at the top of the tree.)

I am all about color. (for the umpteenth time-in case you haven't heard me!)

What cute chairs!!

I am thinking that they moved that tree for the photo-op. Or maybe this isn't the end opposite the floral chairs, and I am just turned around.

Here is a closeup of the chairs...........

All beautiful photos courtesy of Southern Living.

Have a great day!!!

Pin It!

I remember seeing these photos and of course instantly was drawn to them because of the orange and all the pops of color. You are right without it, this room would be so boring. I too am all about color, it's what makes the world go round:)

Thanks so much for participating in the door contest.
