My Favorite Room.....City Farmhouse

Hi friends of Savvy Southern Style!
My name is Jen and I blog at City Farmhouse. Thank you Kim for asking me to be a part of this incredible series, I am honored.
I adore Kim, she is so creative and talented and I think you will ALL agree, she has an amazing eye for style and detail. She was one of the first bloggers to reach out to me when I dove in head first last spring and for that I am so grateful.
:)
My favorite room....that would have to be my family room.
It is the heart of my home and it is a space that sees it ALL. If the walls could talk  they would speak of quiet & peaceful moments in the early morning, when the sun gleams in through the windows that overlook the bay, they would speak of days of chaos and excitement  as 2 little boys grow, explore, learn and use their imaginations and they would also speak of nights of calm, where 2 friends still very much in love, find a few minutes alone by the fire while their fun seeking, happy little boys are fast asleep:).

When we first moved into this home (after house hunting for a long, long time) I was in awe.I would get up early, come down to this room, open the shades and just take it all in. I would watch the sunrise over the water, each time it felt like the very first time and still does. This room is where our day to day moments of life are lived & cherished, it is a place we gather with family & friends, where we give LOVE and truly treasure the simple moments together.

Welcome to my family room....
with little touches of spring.







 













 


 I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my home with you today. If you would like to read more about my journey or more about how I decorated this entire room on a budget, please come over to City Farmhouse for a visit, I would love to have you.
Thank you, Kim.

  13. This is almost the EXACT same layout as my living room!! I'm at a loss for how to set up the seating arrangement...these shots give me LOTS of ideas!! I don't imagine you'd be able to post just one more picture?? I'm curious to see what the room looks like, from the foot of your staircase looking in? I'd like to get a feel for what the flow of the room looks like with the sofas set up the way the are. THANKS for these pics, and any others you can provide! :D
