If youâ€™re looking for a spot to express your creative side as a family, your coffee table may be the perfect place. Protect the surface with a table cloth or a large flat weave rug by placing a drop cloth or roll of craft paper beneath it. Next, lay out painting or crafting supplies with a cohesive color scheme among vessels.
To create a kids' nook that complements the living room design, modern chairs with durable, ribbed fabric were brought in along with a modern coffee table and an easily accessible library of kids' books.
This multipurpose living room serves as a stylish retreat for Dad, a workspace for Mom, a playroom for the kids and even a quick spot to eat dinner on weeknights. Designer Genevieve Gorder used practical and functional furnishings to make sure the room can clearly serve each role in a chic and organized way.
This small, wooden table and chairs is the perfect place for kids to be creative. Thin stones are stacked to the ceiling surrounding the glass fireplace. A thin bookshelf finishes the wall next to a white sliding barn door.
As the wall art suggests, this stylish space was designed for a young family living in a beachside community in Southern California. Because the room gets so much use, especially by kiddos who love to eat and play on the white sofas, Anthology Interiors outfitted the space with durable and washable materials.
The highlight of this fun family den area is a kids swing that hangs from the exposed beam and corrugated metal ceiling. A brown leather sofa offers a cozy place to relax, while red and white pillows and a striped area rug provide finishing decorative touches.
A play area on one half of this family room is perfect for keeping children entertained while adults can relax in the other half. A navy couch and brown leather chair contrast against the light yellow and white walls. A built-in fireplace with gray tile surrounds adds a great masculine detail to the design. Throw pillows, a blanket and fun wall art keep the space colorful.
The large sectional grounds the design of this living room by adding a deep shade of blue to the room. The natural walls, area rug and ceiling keep the room looking bright and spacious. A kid's play table is centered in the room for a fun and interactive family set up.
Let your kids become part of your great room's art collection by engaging in family crafts. For a playful touch, spell out a child's name along with a family-friendly message using wooden game letters, then display them inside a shadowbox.
