Laurel Street Project: The Family Room

Laurel Street Project: The Family Room


The family room is truly the heart of the home for me. It’s the spot where the whole family gathers to watch movies and play games and is so important get right when designing a home.


This room was nice and large and called for my favorite furniture layout; two sofas facing each other, large coffee table and two arm chairs. Don’t forget about the little stools tucked in front of the fireplace!

Slipcovered sofas with stain repellant fabric was an absolute must in this family friendly living room. We even took it a step further and went with a dark grey fabric to really camouflage any spills. I like to opt for the bench seat on the seat cushions so it really feels like a bed when lounging!


We decided to go bold in the swivel chairs and chose a paisley print fabric. Always opt for a swivel chair if there is a room adjacent that has a lot of action going on. That way your guests can feel apart of both rooms and never even leave their seat!

A simple Seagrass rug compliments the grey and white furniture and the white farmhouse coffee table is virtually indestructible. Perfect for a family with young children.


This bright family room is chock full of natural elements. From the bright colored moss balls on the coffee table to the faux hydrangeas on the bookshelves. Even the pillows have a nod to the outdoors with the floral print fabric.
