Do you know that feeling when you see a photo of yourself and your like, “That is not what I look like?” Please say yes! Well, that’s the same reaction I have when I upload photos of my home. “My family room doesn’t look like that? Oh yes, it does, Laura. Oh, yes it does. I love the Revere Pewter family room walls, but these photos show a little more blah than boom. And, it wasn’t until I took these photos that I realized I have some family room goals this fall. My Revere Pewter family room walls need a little more color! I was on the right track when I added these pillows.
The basket with the pillows is one of the favorite things in the room. I love the contrast between the wicker and the blue & white pillows. See that tennis ball in the background? I have a photo collage of random tennis balls. When you are a tennis family you find tennis balls just about everywhere. Last spring I painted the niches and nooks Hale Navy and love the contrast. You can see the family room before last year here. Warning: there was a lot of brown in the before photos.
This is one of my favorite signs. Very soon, the green will be replaced with orange! When do you start decoring for fall? I hold out until the first day of September. Apparently, Starbucks can’t wait that long.
Here is a glimpse of our new windows from earlier this summer. The new windows transformed the room. We replaced all the windows with clear glass (no grids). I shared the details of this copycat lamp here and I can’t wait for the lamp to come back in stock to order a second one.
And, then I captured this wall and I was like, “Oh, that’s rough Laura.” Now what?
Our dream, okay my dream, is to knock down that wall and add a dual-sided fireplace (the living room is on the opposite side). But until then I need something on those walls. Taking suggestions! And, look I spy another tennis ball.
