My Modern-Boho Family Room Update & a $500 Giveaway to Interior Define

You may remember the design I put together for this makeover…

Well, here it is! We’ve been talking about this family room makeover for months, and I was so excited for the final pieces to arrive to get it put together! We’ve changed everything from the ground, up. A new rug, new furniture, new decor… The crowning jewel is our brand new velvet sofa by Interior Define! We’d had our IKEA slipcover sofa for a couple years, and while it more than served its purpose and worked well with young kids, my husband has always complained he wanted something more substantial. He wanted deeper cushions and something with a bit more structure. And total honesty, I was getting kinda sick of washing the slipcovers. Our new sofa seats way more people comfortably; I luv the u-shape of our Sloan Sectional, and luv that more than one person has the chaise lounge to kick their feet up. If you want to hear about how I selected this particular sofa and why I chose the fabric that I did, make sure to check out my previous blog post

Now, let’s talk about the new rug situation… When we made plans to makeover this room, of course I ran quickly to the idea of a new rug. If you’ve been with me a while, you know good and well that I have rug ADD and will take any excuse I can get to switch up my rug situation. I’ve been eyeing this top rug for about 2 years now. I even used it in a client’s home over a year ago, in an attempt to get it out of my system. But seeing it in her home, I wanted it for myself even more. So when this room makeover came to fruition, I knew this rug needed to make its debut in this spot RIGHT HERE, with ME… her lucky mama. Instead of using a rug pad, I decided to make use of this natural fiber rug that I had laying around. I’ve used it in this room before and have used it alone AND layered with several other rugs I have. This current situation, however… is my FAV. If you also LUV the layered rug look and are looking for a great layering rug to use, this one might be the perfect one for you. Again, it’s also great alone, if you want the total neutral look. But I luv how this layered look is soft on my feet, with added texture.

Shop my rugs:

I purchased this new coffee table (full price), only to discover it went on clearance right after I purchased it! {Insert eye roll.} But my loss is your gain. You can get this gorgeous, real wood, brass-edged coffee table (from my favorite store on the planet) for less than $300. I paid double. {Insert double eye roll.} All of that aside, it’s a gorgeous piece, made of real oak. It has the look of a vintage cutting board and has a gorgeous brass banding around it’s edge that blends perfectly with the brass feet of the new sofa and the brass in our barstools and other decor throughout this room.

Over the last couple years, I’ve streamlined our decor to cleaner lines, more modern, with a subtle coastal vibe. When I went to looking for a new statement piece for this wall, I knew I wanted the piece to embody that direction in every way. Insert introduction to Kara Rosenlund. Kara’s art has been featured in Elle, InStyle and a million other notable publications. Kara is an Australian Travel Photographer and was recently named by UK Interiors Elle Decoration as “a modern day Martha Stewart”. She really is talented beyond belief. Her limited-edition prints are signed and stamped, and if you decide to purchase one, you will be investing in a valuable piece that I bet will stay with you a very long time. Check her out. You won’t regret it. I’m legit OBSESSED with my Diver Photographic Print. FYI- Mine is the large.

Shop the items (and similar) on my console wall (MY FAV: my new record player):

The tree is real, but here is a similar faux option if you’re thumb is brown like mine!

I know you also want to talk about my current pillow situation. Pretty much everywhere you look right now, you’re seeing global inspired textiles, mudcloth & natural dyed cushion covers. I found this amazing Etsy store that carries all of the above. I’ve linked a couple of the ones you see here in the shopping carousel below, but definitely peruse the entire shop, because there is so much goodness, it’s hard to even know where to begin!

Since there isn’t enough room for a big side table, I knew I wanted to add a floor lamp to have reading light. Like with the other pieces I’ve selected, I wanted something modern, with simple lines, and I really wanted to bring in some touches of white. I’ve added a lot of color this time, but I still luv my white! This floor lamp is from the same place as the new rug, and it could not be more perfect! The Mine has been my go-to for unique home decor pieces. (It’s also my go-to for unique cabinet hardware.) If you’re looking for literally ANYTHING, you’re likely to find it at The Mine.

PS- Really good faux greenery can be hard to find. But I LUV this one.

I hope you like what we did with the space! Believe it or not, we’re actually not completely finished with the space, as we are currently working on a custom built-in wall unit for the other side of this room. (Stay tuned to see how that comes together.) But I have to say, I absolutely luv the reintroduction of some color into our home. For anyone who may ask, the paint color did not change. It is still Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and the window treatments are Wendy Bellissimo for Smith & Noble. For all other items, shop the carousel below…
