A Vintage Style Rug for Our Family Room



Today I wanted to show you the family room side of this space with our new rug that added the finishing touch. When I first saw this Villa Rug on our sponsor, ESaleRugs website, I thought it would be perfect for our master bedroom, however when it arrived I saw how it looked in our family room and realized I loved it even more in here! The 9 by 12 size was the perfect size for this space. I love the vintage look of it and the mix of blues, grays, beiges and creams. The vintage/worn patterned look is my favorite because I love the dimension it adds plus it helps hide stains which is great for a high traffic area. I also like having thin rugs in spaces like this so there's not really much of a change from the wood to the rug and it's easier for me to move myself. ESaleRugs also has lots of other beautiful options to choose from.


You can see a little peek of our coffee bar area over in the corner of this picture. We will have a post with more details of that in a couple of weeks.


I love the different patterns and colors in the rug:

Our Window Seat Area with New Lantern


I am so excited that our family room and breakfast nook are finished! Woohoo! Well, technically there are still a few things to finish up but the big projects are done and today I am going to start with sharing our breakfast area and new window seat. 

First let's start with how the room started. The kitchen area had mostly been renovated but the rest of the room was original to the 80's when the home was built. The floors had been refinished which we were really excited about. All of the wood trim though, was just a little bit too dark for us. I know lots of people prefer the warmth of all the wood trim but we prefer to have a bit of a lighter feel so painting the woodwork Simply White by Benjamin Moore was an easy decision. I knew that I was going to basically be painting every square inch of this house and seeing how it felt like I had just finished doing that to our last house I decided to get some help with a couple of the spaces that I was dreading the most in this house so I hired a wonderful lady who I've worked with before to paint all the trim in this room. The days she was doing that I tackled the walls in here as well as the trim in the kitchen and the walls and trim in the laundry room. It was so nice having the help because in about four days we were able to get this whole main living space tackled which felt so great! 


Once the painting was done I added some new blinds and then added some headboard wallpaper below the chair rail. Then Christmas came and went and I moved on to painting pretty much every other space I could so I could get all of the painting crossed off my list. After I finally got painting most of the house behind me then I moved back in here to add some more finishing touches. 

Then a week and a half or so ago, this gold lantern from Lighting Design arrived. I had been torn on whether or not I wanted to hang it in our entryway or here in the kitchen but once it arrived I knew instantly that it was going to be perfect for the kitchen! I had been eyeing this light fixture for months and months and had taken so many screenshots of it and then finally decided to pull the trigger on it. I was sooooo excited that I basically hung and wired it as soon as I saw that it had arrived. They don't sell this particular one online but if you just give their showroom a call they can order it for you! And they also sell this one that is very similar and at a lower price point. Plus they carry tons and tons of inventory so you should head on over and check out their website. We are so happy with ours. The color on it is absolutely beautiful and I love the proportions of it. Plus they carry it in quite a few different size options. 

And then the finishing touch was the window seat. This was way out of my building capabilities so we hired a talented woodworker to build this as well as our mantel and one other project (I'll show you both of those in upcoming posts). I still need to paint the window seat (right now it is just primed) but I couldn't wait to take pictures as soon as it was installed! Ha! And then I am trying to decide if I want to add some pulls onto each drawer that opens below the window seat. I keep going back and forth whether or not I want to add them or not. 



I swapped the chairs we had out here with our dining room ones. I think ultimately though these will end up back in the dining room once I find what I am looking for for in here.

I love how the gold lantern pops against all the grays and blues and adds some warmth.
