HI everyone ! I am so excited to be  a apart of the Color lovers blog hop with 9 other talented  bloggers and sponsored by The Mine, Minted and Birch Lane and hosted by Kelly Elko! I decided to move away from the color scheme of the hand me down furniture we had downstairs, and go with a gray and coral family room.

If you remember, my family room looked like this.

Remember when I talked about my inspiration board a month ago? Here’s a sneak peek, let’s see how closely they look. It’s fun to see how closely they translate to real life sometimes.

Downstairs family room inspiration styled with natural wood and colorful touches

I started with a beautiful smaller sectional from The Mine in gray. I knew I wanted a sectional for downstairs, because the two love seats for 5 people were just not cutting it. We were slightly cramped. I found this amazing sectional with a chaise, and a really cool chair, that was very mid-century modern feeling. I knew with gray they would hod up well to dirt, and wear and tear with the kids down stairs, but would add more color than just beige or white.I have to tell you, we love it! It’s super comfortable and perfect for our family. We finally have enough room for everyone to sit comfortably!

The chair is super comfy as well, and the kids even fight over it.

Cute mid century mod inspired chair

We replaced the rug with one from Birch Lane It’s beautiful! And adds a nice neutral backdrop for the furniture.

Art and curtains add a ncie custom touch to the gray and coral family room

I love how this corner came out! The lamp shade, curtains and artwork are all from Minted. They add such a fun, eclectic, artsy touch, I never knew you could get curtains and lamps shades from Minted. I always thought of it as just a place to buy art. Theses were a nice surprise when they came in the mail, of what good quality they are!

Pillows to add a touch of color

I added some fun pillows for color and contrast. Remember that coffee table I sanded?You finally get to see what it looks like in the room!

The rug  from Birch Lane is perfect with the natural wood of the coffee table.

Use a smaller sectional in a basement family room

I love how it all works together in the space! I am so happy with our gray and coral family room, it makes for such a comfortable place to hang out! The smaller sectional fits so well!
