This summer style in our family room is all about the light and bright peaceful palette.
We are getting ready to go on vacation in the next few days. I have been prepping for that and also wrapping up the school year with the kids. It’s been a crazy hectic few weeks. In between juggling end of the year activities, I’ve made a few changes in the family room to update it for the summer season. It will be nice to come home to a summer ready room when we get back!
To update the space, I replaced the mantel decor and moved a few pieces of furniture around. In addition, I changed and added to our gallery wall. You can see our Light & Airy Spring family room space (LINK) to see where I started this seasonal update.
Peaceful Palette in our Summer Family Room
Since our fireplace will not be used this season, I decided instead of showcasing it to let it slip more into the background. By bringing two of our accent chairs forward to the rug the focus becomes more on the seating area. I like the way the small curvy table fits snuggly in between.
Another change was the mantel decor. Down came the spring bunnies and instead, a simple palette of two plants, glass jars, a curvy mirror, and simple silver candlesticks complete the symmetrical design.
In the corner, my spring corner vignette (LINK) got an update with a piece of whimsical flower artwork.
I love the small updates I made just by changing out accessories and rearranging the furniture. Remember, you don’t always have tot spend money to make an impact!
