Our family room has slowly become a playroom and I am not ok with that. It is convenient having my children’s toys downstairs because they can play while I do laundry, cook and clean up but it is a major eye sore. I have slowly been moving the toys upstairs to a room right outside the boys’s bedrooms. This room is like a small family room but can also be a playroom. If I want the boys to play up here more I need to make it more inviting, comfortable and I need to enjoy it too.
I went through a phase of modern furniture and design but now that I have little ones I am wanting things to be softer. This deep charcoal colored couch from Ashley Homestore is perfect at hiding any traffic and destruction – Myles loves to jump on the couch (I know I’m in trouble and I should have broken this habit a long time ago!). The accent chair (also from Ashley’s) is more classic than I would typically go for but I love the high back and it is the perfect spot for me to cozy up in while the boys play. I wanted something light in the room to brighten it up so I chose this chair and it will be my chair, growing up my dad and grandpa both had their “chairs” and this cream colored one has my name all over it- no kids allowed!
Two large gray poufs (from Ashley’s) were added around our coffee table. The texture on these add a relaxing feel to the room and they add additional seating or fort building to the room. I brought in a large area rug to soften the floors, we had a 5×7 and before and it didn’t feel big enough. This rug is really soft and Noah and Myles can roll around on it. I wanted the room to have a more earthy feel too so I chose this live edge accent table and our Joshua Tree art. I love how this family room came together and we all have enjoyed playing up here!
