I just finished accessorizing and styling a family room for a young couple. The spare room used to function as their home office, but they decided to repurpose this extra room and now utilize it as a place to sit and watch some television. I suggested they remove the doors so it feels less like the bedroom it once was. I also recommended a sectional so they have ample seating in the small space.

A few items were already owned (the yellow tv stand was scored for $30!), and most of the rest of the items we shopped for together. All on a budget to create a cozy, comfortable room that now feels more homey.

After

A small, round coffee table was ideal for the space since the room was small and it balances off the rectangular shape of the sofa. It also picks up the circles of the area rug, ottoman and mirrors, creating movement. The pattern of the ottoman and area rug are also a nice play on scale. The area rug also brings in some color and pattern to the otherwise neutral room.

That’s what I call affordable decorating.

Happy Thursday!
