Our family room is hands down our most used room in the house. We spend SO much time in here. It’s connected to our kitchen, which is also where you can find Mike and me a lot during the day, and our television is also in here so that’s a big draw for us 😉
Not only is it our most used room, it’s also the room that is the most finished. It takes a long time to furnish a house. (Well I’m sure it’s possible to do it all in one fell swoop, but it’d be really expensive all at once. I feel a lot more comfortable spreading out the finances and taking our time figuring out how we use a space.
My inbox has been flooded about questions about where things are from and I’m sure everything is linked or discussed somewhere on my blog, but I figure it’s best to just put together one post with everything under one roof, so to speak. So here we go!
I’ve had these pillows since my Connecticut apartment too. I LOVE them so much together.
Having a white couch with two dogs seems insane, but hear me out. This couch has been with me since I moved to Connecticut in 2015. I love it. The whole thing is slipcovered so it can be completely washed– yes, the whole thing… not just the cushion covers. It’s held up through countless runs through the washer and dryer and has held up amazingly. (I did have a zipper pull pop off, but it was an easy fix that took me all of three minutes.)

Note: I’ve had this couch since 2015 and learned the hard way that colors can differ slightly year to year, so definitely worth ordering a swatch to be sure you get the color you want.
I had been on the hunt for swivel chairs for our family room for a bit. I really dislike the look of grommets and many swivel chairs on the market have grommets. And then I kept running into problems trying to find the right size. It was a total Goldilocks moment. Some were too small, a lot were too big. These swivel chairs from Serena and Lily were definitely a splurge, but totally worth it because they complete the space. Not that we’re having people over at the moment, but I assume we’ll be able to at some point (hopefully?!). And when we do, the chairs are great for chatting with friends on the couch, or swiveling for watching television together. They’re also super comfortable. Great for watching movies or curling up with a book.
SWIVEL CHAIR DETAILS: Perennials Basketweave – Navy
I LOVE this fireplace. It has a wood burning stove that’s technically in working order, but we’ve never used it. Looks beautiful though… I was tempted to paint the bricks white when we first moved in and I’m glad I resisted.
