|We went with dark gray couches in a kid friendly fabric from Macy's. If you want a similar look for a fraction of the price, check out this sectional from Amazon. (Affiliate links provided in this post for your shopping convenience!)|
|The couches have such clean modern lines that I wanted to bring in some more classic pieces to soften the space, so we went with an ivory tufted chair (similar) and a tufted navy ottoman|
|The open space feels so cohesive but the area rug really grounds the space and makes this room feel separate from the kitchen area.|
|We kept all of our large purchases very neutral, but added in our personalities with accents pieces in a mix of patterns and colors. I know most people think navy and black together is against the rules, but I vote to break the rules. The navy ottoman next to the black & white throw may just be my favorite part of the room. And for a little function, storage bench in the background is a great place to quickly stash kids toys when company comes over and the galvanized tin tray is a catchall for our magazines and remotes.|
|I've had so much fun changing out this gallery wall this past year, but I wanted to do something more permanent that would fit with every season. I love what we ended up with... typography of all the things that are important and meaningful to our family in classic black and white frames.|
So what do you think? What's your favorite item in the new space?
