My Favorite Room....Down To Earth Style


Let's welcome Holly from Down To Earth Style this week.

Thank you, Kim, for having me over to share my favorite room.
To be honest, my favorite room is which ever one happens to be clean at the moment.
Our family room is the most used space in our home. None of our furniture matches but it is all very comfortable.
The color pallet is very neutral. A seasonal color can be easily added in.
This time of year I like to bring in fresh flowers and colored throw pillows.  Changing out the decor is really fun.
Since this room is one of our largest spaces, our big up-cycled windows are used as backdrops for the fireplace mantel and for the TV entertainment area.
Mostly I like to display pictures of our family but I have a love for pictures of horses too.
All the end tables are up-cycled. Actually, two of them are old crates tipped sideways.
The entertainment console is my very own creation featuring an old fence to look like doors.
Fresh plants are the added  color for most of the year.
Greenery freshens up any room and makes it cozy and alive.
Why is this room my favorite space? The best family time is spent here and we can all relax. The sofa and chairs are slip covered and can be washed so we can bring food and drinks and even wear shoes, what ever we like. We live here.
Thanks for viewing my favorite room.

Thank you Holly for opening up your home for us. 
I sure hope y'all will go over and say hi to Holly at Down To Earth Style if her blog is new to you.

Have a glorious weekend!

  1. Thank you Holly & Kim for sharing this lovely room with us! I love the console ... very clever design. It fits the room perfect. The neutrals are all very soothing without being boring. Nicely done. I can see why this is a favorite room.

  2. I hear you Holly when you say your family room is lived in. That is our living room, washable slipcovers, unmatched furniture and cast off end and coffee tables. You have really pulled together a beautiful living space. I love the idea of the crate-on-end end table and I am also loving those paneled walls, it makes the room that much more cozy. Thank you so much Kim and Holly for sharing this lovely family room. Wishing you both a wonderful weekend!
