inspiration workshop {family room}

It is week seventeen of Gussy Sews' inspiration workshop!  This week's prompt is FAMILY ROOM.

I am so excited for this week's prompt.  We spend a lot of time in our family room.  It is the spot to hang out in our home.  (It is also the only place in our house that has a TV and couches.) 

This past March I re-did our family room.  I love the final look of the room and I am thrilled to share it as part of inspiration workshop!

This is the view from the front door.
Our couches are well loved and either needed to be replaced or covered.
We quickly discovered that what we wanted was way out of our price range so we ended using three-piece sofa covers from SureFit.
I could not be happier with how well the covers fit and how great they look!

The curtains, pillows, and blankets are all from Target.

I had been eyeing a ladder shelf for a long time.  I love how it looks.
I hope to fill it with more pictures and fun memories.

The area rug needed to be replaced (badly.)
I found this great rug at Target.
I love how this rug pulls the whole room together.

Another view of our couches.
(Currently the room is flipped the other way.  Someone was having issues with the sun/light glare on the TV.  Once I purchase some light blocking shades I am flipping the room back.)

This self from Target holds some of Kate's random toys, books, and games.
I am debating purchasing more fabric totes (in sage green and aqua) to hide all the other clutter.

I love our "family" heart banner from Lisa Leonard!

This sits right by our front door.
The lamp, mirror/key rack, and table are from Target.
The print is from Red Letter Words.

Along the other wall of our entryway is this sofa table.
It has some of our favorite family pictures on top.  Down below are a couple of baskets that hold all kinds of random things.
Above the table our a few of our favorite photos from our MckMama photoshoot a view years ago.

There are a view things I would love to add to our family room over the next year or two.
I would love to find a wreath, possibly season themed, to hang on the wall by the mirror.  I would also love to find a wodden letter of the first letter of our last name to place on the little shelf with the mirror.
And off course I will continue to fill and update the walls with pictures of our family.

What are some of the favorite things in your family room?
