Happy Thursday and welcome to the series Why This Works… where I highlight a designed space and talk about what I love. This family room is light, bright and exudes warmth and casual living. This lovely home belongs to Brooke Giannetti and her family. She has the amazing design blog, Velvet and Linen. As I got ready to link up this photo to her blog, I realized this gorgeous home is also for sale! Take a look!
When I saw this on pinterest, it was one of those spaces I instantly had to pin. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, a calming, relaxing space that is also beautiful sounds like perfection! The creamy white on the walls is a subtle backdrop to the calming neutrals and soothing tones throughout the space. What makes the room so interesting is the use of texture to create interest. Monochromatic spaces are gorgeous when there is added layers of soft linens paired with rustic woven fibers, such as the area rug. The wood floors also balance well with all of the fabrics seen in the room. The gorgeous ottoman is functional, yet has delicate legs that works so well paired with an oversized sectional. The rectangular shapes seen in the entertainment area, windows and rug are balanced with round accessories, like in the globes. The family room’s chandelier is functional and pretty- I like that it is painted white, so it doesn’t distract from the rest of the space. A peek into the sitting room allows you to see a beautiful lantern chandelier and amazing wingback chair. And what about the view?? What a calming, serene view! For me, this space works!
