Geometric multicolor patterns and bold hues complete this contemporary kid-friendly family room by Kandrac & Kole Interior Design. A wood storage cabinet holds a media system on one side of the fireplace, while the other side serves as a reading corner with furry white stools. The room also has a sectional and white desks. Above the cabinet is a mirror made out of recycled paint cans.
Furnished with a flat-screen television, the HGTV Smart Home 2014 kids' den offers a spot to watch movies and play video games. A soft, houndstooth rug anchors the space, which is defined by blue paneled walls and a collection of furnishings, both modern and traditional in design.

A coat of fresh, white paint covers the mix of architectural details in this fun family room, giving the traditional lines of the space an instant update. Working with an active family with young children, the design team worked to turn the whole house into a space "where the whole family could have a blast, and it be beautiful as well." A teepee in the kids' play area adds a whimsical note.
Blogger Gabrielle Blair took on the HomeGoods #MakeHomeYours challenge and created a bright, kid-friendly family room that was still stylish and sleek. On the open shelving around the fireplace, she borrowed bright colors from other areas in the room and created color blocks, using accessories and accent pieces to stripe each shelf with a different vivid hue.
Storage space allows this play area to stay organized, keeping this family room open and inviting. The white and yellow walls create a bright atmosphere and allow the bright colors from the toys and kid-themed art to pop. Beige carpet softens the floor next to the lovely light wood hallway.
The homeowners wanted stylish, kid and pet friendly spaces in which guests wouldn't be afraid to put their feet up, so designers merged natural textures with durable fabrics to create a great living room to fit the family's needs.

This bright and cheery family room is covered in high-energy hues, packed with pet-friendly materials and outfitted with clever storage solutions. From washable paint sheen on the walls to lightweight rustic table lamps, the space was designed to be durable, comfy and almost indestructible.
Skip the grown-up table and host your chid's birthday party at the coffee table. Delineate the space with colorful balloons tied to the table legs, then add high-energy hues to the table with bowls, plates and cups. Keep baskets nearby with clean-up necessities in the event of any spills or smudges.
This corner of the family room was made for entertaining the little ones with books and toys. The daughters are fun-loving, creative and artistic, so the designers wanted to give them a vibrant space that incorporated just the right amount of color, pattern and natural texture.
Colorful artwork and a wood console table for toy storage make this playroom fun for all ages. A wall of windows allows plenty of natural light to flow throughout the space, and the small wooden table and chairs provide a perfect spot for games or a snack.
