Photo Gallery: Family Rooms
Inspiring spaces for relaxation and quality time.
Instead of serving as a repository for family cast-offs, this TV room is transformed with a dynamic rug from West Elm and wicker accents.
House & Home design editor Sally Armstrong can’t imagine how she ever did without the bright, multifunctional family room that she included in her reno plans. “Now, the kids lounge down here to watch movies and play video games with their friends,” says Sally. She bought the quilted blue and white accent chair when she saw it marked down 50 per cent to $400. “I thought the shape was interesting and knew I’d regret not getting it.”
Parents of young children may cringe at the thought of sticky hands on this luxe upholstery, and they are no doubt envying the sophisticated retreat that this room represents.
