On my last trip to South. Florida recently, I was able to make some minor updates to my 'Home Away From Home' den at my sisters house. It's the place that we camp out every time we are visiting and since comfort means everything to my sister when we are there, I generally have carte blanche to make sure that this room feels just like home. Thank you sister!
I just love this space. It evokes such an airy feeling with it's white slip covered sofa's and rattan furniture. The slip covered sofa's from Rooms To Go are perfect in this room and provide me with piece of mind should one of the kids spill something while watching tv.
On my last trip down to Florida I found this table on the curb and painted it to introduce some color into the space. You can read about that transformation here. This is what that corner looked like prior to the change.
The chunky wood lamp and covered table was just to heavy for this space. The new table and clear lamp base from Home Goods that I replaced it with, makes more sense for this corner. Another change that I made across the room, was adding a large clock on the wall. I painted it the same color as the table to carry the color across the room. You can see more about that here.
Since the furniture is slightly over sized, the room is not heavily accessorized which is great for three curious kids in someone else's house. Besides, I don't have to keep repeating " don't touch", "put that down", "leave that alone". You know what I mean, right?
TV console, table and chairs from a local shop in West Palm Beach, Florida and art work from Ballards.
It's such a great room and perfect for those family visits in fact..... maybe now would be a good time to tell my sister that we are moving in? Not really...I wish.
Awesome first day of school for my kids.
