{Summer pooped in my family room}


That’s right – summer pooped in my family room!!  Lovely title right?!  But, that’s what happened – really it did.

I needed some color in my family room – so with my awesome white couches – i can add all the colorful pillows i want.

I LOVE it – just the color that this space needed.

I also had a sofa table that was white, but i thought that needed some fun color as well – so yellow it went.  I love the yellow with my light greenish walls – so fresh and summery :)

Also – check out my ladder.  Love it – even though its about ready to crumble!  Perfect just propped against the wall to hold blankets.  So many things you could do with old ladders – hold blankets, magazines, baskets, towels in the bathroom, used as shelves….

Usually there are a couple more blankets – but they are in the wash…

So there it is – my summer family room – its very fun and still neutral enough that i wont get sick of it in a couple of weeks – cuz that never happens to me ;)

    Love the room! We have a uneven brick fireplace as well…. how did you easily hang your mantel on that? Would LOOOOOVE any advice!!

    • Sausha @ {Sweet Pickins} September 22, 2013 at 10:33 am #

      It was done by the builder. But the mantel was done before the stone, so the mantel was attached directly to the wall and stone was put around it
