Happy Monday! Today is an exciting day here at withHEART– it’s the day I’m showing you all one of the most lived in, loved, and comfortable rooms in my home– it’s family room reveal day!
When we moved in, I had good intentions of tackling this room early on. In fact, I really wanted to get it done before Ruby was born (ha, was that unrealistic!). I knew we would be in there a lot, and people would be visiting frequently and I didn’t want them in our ugly living room. Every time we had visitors, I wanted to say “hey! The nursery and guest room are quite lovely– want to take this conversation upstairs?” I loathed the room and just the way our remodel order went, it ended up being near the end of our list. Such a shame. But now that it’s done, it’s been so wonderful enjoying it! What a life-changer.
First, you may remember I showed you my design plans for the space and put together this design board:
Put on your tin foil hats and brace for teleportation: let’s head back in time and see what I was working with (photo from when we did our walk through– previous owner’s furnishings).
Now drum roll please…..
Here is our transformed family room:

I honestly cannot believe it’s the same space. It’s so cheerful and relaxed, yet I feel like it feels put together and intentional. This week I’m getting into all the nitty-gritty details in this space, including sharing the second part to building those built-ins (you can see part 1 here) and all of the room specifics– what’s new, what’s repurposed, etc.
So, what’s your favorite part? I’m still in awe that we built that entire wall around the fireplace from scratch. Such a proud accomplishment!
Have a wonderful week!
