Inverting the Palette–Family Room Makeover

The next stop on the tour is my family room. For this makeover I replaced the maple entertainment center, coffee table, end tables, and wicker sofa with the white entertainment center, coffee table, end tables, sofa, and wicker chairs from the living room. I added a white slip cover to the sofa, a stripped cotton rug, and nautical themed pillow covers and artwork.

Still committed to my previous blue color scheme, I covered the aqua walls with the same color I used in the dining room (Ocean Air by Benjamin Moore Paints) for a cohesive look. I left the ceiling color as is–Windmill Wings also by Benjamin Moore. This room is screaming out for crown molding, so I’ve added the task to my to-do list.

For those who are curious about where to purchase items in this room makeover, the cottage-style entertainment center, tables, and camel back sofa are from Lane Furniture, the white wicker chairs are from Lexington Furniture, the brown wicker chair is from Pier1 Imports, the stripped cotton rug and sea grass lamp are from Pottery Barn. The sail boat prints and frames are from Pottery Barn Kids.

The final stop on my Inverting the Palette tour is the kitchen, which also serves as my studio. More on that tomorrow.
