My Family Room Space:  The Designal Frontier

This is the journey of the Starship ORC.  Its six week mission:  to explore new methods of spending money, to seek out unique and fabulous accessories, to boldly post where most bloggers have never posted before.

"Frontier" may not be exactly accurate, since our family room was my June 2012 One Room Challenge project.  And, for the record, I've never been a Star Trek girl.  My ADD brain would prefer to procrastinate by churning out absurd juxtapositions rather than create the ORC action plan this room requires.

This will be my seventh ORC, and I'm sooooo excited to be participating with the amazingly talented bloggers linking up on Calling It Home Thursdays!  

When I redesigned this room the first time, I ignored an entire wall (east wall, not pictured), and hoped no one would notice.  It's a problematic wall that I still find daunting.  Hopefully, a wonderful solution will present itself very soon.

Some of the elements I chose for this room I no longer find terribly appealing.  That my tastes evolve and change is an annoying occurrence that I regret, but my husband regrets more. Some elements I still love, but they're just not working optimally in this room.  

Our family spends most of our time here -- it's our casual living area.  I intend to finally finish the troublesome end of this room, and make the changes that will keep me satisfied for at least another three years : )

Be sure to go see the infinite interior design inspiration at Calling It Home's One Room Challenge Thursday Event here.

And, if by chance you haven't already, check out the Spring 2015 One Room Challenge participants.  This is going to be such fun!

I always love how your rooms turn out. Looking forward to how you solve the design problems and refresh the space.

Ha Ha....you are funny! This room is still so pretty so don't mess with perfection!

Which wall is the problem? Or are you not showing it? Or are you just feeling like the bookshelf wall could be better utilized? Did you get too designy and leave no room for a TV? :) I don't see an issue!

Loved that intro! I am dying to see that famous wall!! It already looks so, so beautiful, I can imagine how it will be even more so in just 6 weeks! I'm so excited to follow along

Stephen, I edited the post after seeing your comment. It was confusing -- hopefully it makes better sense now. I would NEVER be too designy to have a TV in our hanging out room. Where would we binge TV!?

You always do a fabulous job Jennifer! Can't wait to see the changes to an already beautiful room!

The poor husbands--we should really have a support group for them. ;) Design is never done, and this proves it because to me it already looks perfect. I can't wait to see your changes and the East wall.

Andrea said...

I just love this room... and I cannot wait to see what you do with the mystery wall!!

XOXO,

Honestly I love your bookcase decor and the plants in Chinoiserie pots as is. But can't wait to see your evolution! A Chinoiserie Easter

I have no idea how you will improve on this. I love it then, and I love it now.
