It's surprising to see how my decor taste have changed over the years. Unfortunately I don't have a magic wand to replace everything when that happens, so I have to work on one room at a time.
My family room is definitely on my list to revamp, it currently looks like this:
The sofa was a custom piece and I learned a hard lesson on that purchase, do not buy an investment piece of furniture that's not a neutral. Since, the sofa is an eight way hand tied piece, I want to keep the sofa but I'm going to have to slipcover it so that it can work with my new decor. (Full disclosure, I can't claim the swag nor the blinds, those were hand me downs from the last owners.)
I think a paint job, removing the armoire, drapes, vertical blinds and adding some new accent furniture will give me the look I want. After all the changes I hope to have a family room that feels as airy as the one below.
