The family room extends off the open living area and the kitchen, allowing for a communal gathering area where family and friends can spend time together. The taupe wall covering balances the white and neutral tones throughout the design.
Designers wanted to create a serene family room, so they started with a neutral color on the walls to reflect the natural light that streams in through the windows. Then, they added a warm blue to the space for a splash of color. Finally, wood details were brought in to give the space texture and finish the design.
This family-friendly home features a music area, a kids' art space, a teepee – even a climbing wall and an indoor swing!

After a long day by the water, the owners and their kids can retreat to this comfortable living area. Here, a plush gray sectional allows everyone to stretch out, while a modern fireplace promises to keep the space cozy and warm all evening. Rustic wood trim, meanwhile, makes for a unique visual.
