Home Decor Inspiration – My Family Room Refresh!

One of the sunniest rooms in our house is a room I have aptly nicknamed our “Yoga Room” due to it being furnished with not much more than a chair, a few sticks in a vase and a yoga mat. I love this space as it is bright, airy and can be anything I make it to be. I have used it for more than one professional photo shoot (one photographer brought her large backdrop along with lighting into it for an afternoon). It is my go-to room for flat lays, selfies, along with being a great place for my little Yorkie to run laps in!

After nearly three years it is really time to start brainstorming some ideas to make this room into a bit more than just a big empty space, as much as I LOVE the minimalism of it. I imagine it being a bright and airy nook complete with white bookshelves and plants. A place to hang out in, to entertain and to take afternoon naps. It would be an excellent family room in the sense that with its high ceilings and big windows it will even look good if it gets a little messy.

I look forward to having a home decor project, as decorating is one of my favourite things to do in my spare time.

Today I am sharing a few things that inspire me that I could see being a perfect fit for this lovely space.

grey sectional west elm

Grey Sectional – West Elm

I see this sectional as the perfect touch to a comfy lounge/family room. I can just imagine laying back and reading my favourite book as the sun streams through our large windows. I love West Elm! Although a little pricey, sometimes you can find pre loved items online in excellent condition.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

This plant is must have. You may have seen it in every home decor magazine ever but I love how full these get when they grow really large. My friend Maya has a massive one in front of her bay window and I would love nothing more than have one adorn my own bright space!

white bookshelves

White Bookshelves

Although I am quite aware of the many hacks to creating faux built-in bookshelves I am not exactly sure what we will do. I love the look of white bookshelves and think even having a couple on either side of a white tv stand would be simply elegant. I really like these ones from Ikea.

marble coffee table

Marble Coffee Table

I am in love with white marble coffee tables! I would love to find one sufficiently large enough to make an impact and be practical in the large space I have to fill. This one is drop dead gorgeous when accented with the gold!

I will most likely accessorize from a lot of local/home run businesses such as makers found on Etsy. What are your thoughts on these looks? Do you have any current home decor projects you are working on? Let me know, I would love to be inspired by you!
