Continuing with our house tour today is a look at our living room/family room. We have one rather large combination room, which suits our current lifestyle perfectly. We've made quite a few changes in here since inheriting it like this five years ago (these are the previous owner's furnishings):
The first thing we did was paint the walls a warm camel color and brighten the built-ins with bright white paint. We initially hung a picture above the mantel but after a couple years and much convincing, I agreed to mount our TV above the mantel. Despite my aversion to having a big black box above our fireplace, it really is the best solution for this room.
The two upholstered chairs in the room are centered on the french doors that lead out to our screened porch.
Check back tomorrow for a look at my girls' recently finished playroom!
