Design Boards :: The Family Room {on a dime}
Wednesday, June 8, 2011 by {darlene}

I am so excited to share my most recent “Complete” Consultation Design Board with all of you!

My client was looking for a way to update her family room.
She had several challenges:

  1. a difficult room flow
  2. an active family with pets {this room needed to work for them, not the other way around}
  3. a desire to incorporate family heirloom furniture
  4. and a limited budget. 

We used a rug that she liked from her current collection, and I used that as the starting point for my Design. My client described her style as “classic,” “timeless,” and “somewhat preppy.”

After I got a sense for her needs, and I got to know her sweet-self a bit, I dove in. And, this is what I envision for their family:

Everything in this room stuck to a strict and do-able budget. We completely changed the floor plan of her furniture to incorporate all sorts of fun family activities {like Uno}, and to make the most of her space.  How exciting!
The floor plan also included her heirloom furniture {not pictured on the design board}. Here is how we made use of all of her available space {I have a little too much fun sketching out these spaces!}:

I hope to be able to help YOU design the room of your dreams, regardless of what you see as your limitations!

My wait-list should be opening up in just a few weeks!! Thanks for hanging in there, darlin’ clients!

  • Hi Darlene! I love this board- I'm actually going to use some of the ideas in my own living room. It gives a nice blend of color and neutral, which I love. I linked it on our FB page for some of our clients, too!

  • I guess I should mention that I work for a REALTOR Assn, but I'm not an agent :) It's nice to show people that neutral doesn't have to be boring or generic.

  • thank you lilmissm!!

    I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the design!!! You have done what I struggled with for seven years- which is give me a workable floor plan. THANK YOU for working within my (small) budget and incorporating those pieces that had so many memories to me. It was so much fun to work with you….I cannot wait to recommend you to EVERYONE I know. THANKS AGAIN!
