Family Room Reveal

As I told you before, with the Kitchen done, now I had to turn my attention to the other half of the room.

The main changes were done to the fireplace, adding the overmantel, you can see the tutorial here and, creating the t.v. wall here.

Our Kitchen and Family Room is just one long room.

  2. what a gorgeous transformation
    you've created

  3. You creted a fabulous transformation, it looks magazine worth! I love the modern and at the same token cozy atmosphere it has, the den all through the kitchen. Great job. Happy weekend.

  4. Your taste is impecable, Cristina. I love anything that says simplicity and uncluttered to me. Your use of colors, two of which are my top two favorites (red and aqua) among the neutrals is perfection. I LOVE IT!!
    Following on Linky and hope you'll follow too.
    Much love!

  5. I was just overwhelmed with your transformation. I love your sense of style. The rooms look so sleek, yet welcoming. I just painted our bedroom walls light gray with darker gray semigloss crown molding, and it feels so clean. Above the bed hangs a white canvas painting of a small aqua bird perched on branch of a sleek black tree. I found the painting at Hobby Lobby, along with an aqua and black vase.
    New comforter set, paint, and accessories only about $200.
