Our Family Room

Our Family Room is pretty much the center of our home.

It's where we kick our shoes off and drop our book bags.

So it needs to fit "us" comfortably.

I think the wall color on this wall has outlasted all others. Haha

It's Relaxed Khaki by Sherwin Williams.

It's a great color that goes well with everything.

I'm sure you may have noticed the painted ceiling again ;)

This time I used Rainwashed.

It's another by Sherwin Williams and goes perfect with the Khaki.

The drapes are drop cloths bought at Home Depot.

And do you see that glare coming into the window?


That's why we have to have a fan in here.

It's from Lowe's ;)

Not bad for a ceiling fan....I guess :)

The Trumeau or fancy mirror like I call it was another DIY.

It's eaiser than it looks really.

One of the most asked questions is about my boxwood wreath.

I found it in my favorite shop located in Baton Rouge.

The Royal Standard.

They no longer sell them there but I keep asking ;)

And just because I'm getting excited about the upcoming holidays...

Here is our Christmas look.

Are y'all starting to get those Christmas fuzzy feelings?

I am!

I'm in no rush by all means but I do love the holidays!
