I have been busy rearranging and adding some new bright colors for Spring and Summer into my Family Room. Our Family room has been a bit of a challenge to decorate.
With 24ft. ceilings, it is not always easy to achieve a warm space. We love Old World style and have spent the last four years antiquing and finding unique items to add to our home. The Church window is 100 years old and came from a church in Upstate New York. We found it in an old restoration antique store in the Charlotte area. It was the perfect addition to the space. My Mantel has also been a challenge. The open space was suppose to be occupied by a TV. We added a candelier which we where given for our 10 year anniversary 5 years ago…..old mantel clock, paired up with some old books, completed the Old World style as well. On top of our entertainment center is a combination of Old and New.
The old wooden sign is from a local state park, that too we found at a local antique store, in fact it was not for sale…..they did however, sell it to us for $60.00 and we could not be happier, as it points to our woods and reads Chester Lookout tower report woods Fire here……and has the arrow pointing the the woods. Hope you Enjoy our Family room as much as we do. The style may not be the norm for everyone…but then again, we are not the NORM, lol, so it is fitting for us!~
