Monday Redesign: Janna's Family Room

A short time ago, I had the joy of working with Janna on her family room space.  Her family room is a great open room with a lot of windows.  She had a couple challenges, though.  So we stepped in to help her out!

Here is a picture of the space and what we had to work with:

Janna's family room had a few challenges that made the layout tricky.

  1. A built-in bookshelf spanning the entire room

  2. Large, angled windows on one side

  3. A great, open floor plan, with little wall space

Below is the floorplan that suggested for Janna.  To be quite honest, it's not all that different from what she originally had, I just tweaked a few things.  I placed smaller chairs for the seating area by the window, and suggested that she move the couch and love seat over {towards the windows} to allow more room for traffic flow.  I also added a floor rug for the main visiting area to help ground everything on the tile floor.

And here is the mood board for her new space:

A break down of the goodies:

1. I used the Tullsta chairs from IKEA covered in the Licorice Emilio fabric from JCaroline Home.

2. The Ottoman is a large 18″ square one from JCaroline Home covered in the solid Chocolate fabric.

3. Accent pillows from JCaroline Home covered in solid Chocolate and Marzipan Clarise.

4. I wanted to keep the window treatments simple in the space so I went with these white window panels from Pottery Barn.

5.  Accent rug (8x10) from FLOR.  This is the Feelin Groovy pattern in Russet.

This redesign was done in partnership with Glamour magazine, JCaroline Home and FLOR.  If you’re interested in hiring us to help you redesign your space, check out our services here.
