I still remember hunter green patterned velour, puffy back, reclining sectionals that completely dwarfed even the largest of rooms… and I shudder. But sectionals have come so far since I was a girl in the early 90’s. And I am thrilled to show you how a HUGE sectional was actually the answer to our rather-on-the-small-side family room.
So we completely redid the fireplace and created a bookcase nook for the tv (you can read all about that project here), which realigned the room much more logically. But even with the addition of a wingback chair, we could still only seat 5 people really comfortably. Since we are now a family of 6, that proves to be rather disappointing.
Probably the only thing I might change if I had total control is I tend more towards warm grays than cool. Our walls, which are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, are my favorite – light gray with some warm tones – and our kitchen cabinets are a darker warm gray. The gray blue of the sectional really is beautiful (and actually complements our marble in the kitchen really well). I think it will be a very forgiving color: light enough to help the room feel bright (remember one of my goals?), but dark enough to hide the inevitable grime of young kids.
12. Modern Style: A modern living room with medium tone‐wood floor living room or white walls. Notice that the living area is just small with a gray area rug. It has a minimalist approach to design.
11. S residence: Don't you love the look of this living room? It has a seamless relation to the outdoor area also it has whites everywhere including the kitchen.
