Family Friendly Living Room

Today, I’m over at Meet Me In Philadelphia talking about what I’m thankful for.

It may not be a shock to any of you as to what I’m thankful for but I’d love for you to pop over and visit Ashley’s blog.  She is fabulously talented, an amazing crafter and as sweet as can be.  I’m lucky to call Ashley a friend.  And don’t forget her ETSY shop…I want this pillow so badly that it officially hurts.

For anyone who is new to the blog, thanks for popping in.  I thought I’d share with you a family friendly living room that I did for a wonderful client and her husband and four little ones.

    Gorgeous! Adore the pales, and yes, the painting steals the show. . . really subtle and yet packs a punch of calm and serenity; who would believe four children live here???!

    What the what?!?! Four kids live there?? No way. I absolutely love the soft palette you went with here, so much so that the pink lumbar pillow on that spool chair will haunt my dreams!

    P.S. thank you so much for sharing what you’re thankful for–it really made me think about what matters most. Thanks for sharing Josie with us! She’s such a treat.

    Oh my gosh! I love the couch and the coffee tables–would you mind messaging me the source for them? I am in LOVE!

    I love the color palette you chose for this room. Very calming and with four kids, they probably need that!

    Where are the round coffee tables from? Love them.
