With bright green lacquered walls — matched to a Pantone chip by Fine Paints of Europe — and a custom Langham & Fine rug patterned like formal garden hedges, a Texas family room takes on the freshness of an outdoor space. Back-to-back sofas in an ivory Cowtan & Tout fabric create two zones within the expansive room.
A Moroccan-inspired lounge, which homeowner Justina Blakeney has dubbed Bluhemia, is wallpapered with Aja in Teal, one of her designs for Hygge & West. The sectional is from Jonathan Louis, and the faux sheepskin is from Target.
Designer Celerie Kemble wanted this den to have an inviting “feet-up” sensibility. The floor is covered in 10 different vintage Moroccan rugs that create an enveloping vibe. She chose all the fabrics in the room to be comfy and durable, so the family can relax together.
A modern Hamptons retreat‘s custom Vladimir Kagan ottoman is covered in an iridescent leather resembling fish skin. Designer Amy Lau had the walls painted Benjamin Moore’s Spring Mint.
All the blues in this Atlanta house designed by Kristin Kong started with the vivid fabric on the family room sofa, Kravet’s Venetian. A bookshelf conceals a door to the back stairs. Walls are painted in Kestrel White to contrast with the Mega Greige trim, both by Sherwin-Williams.
Lily, the French bulldog, sits in one of her favorite spots in the family room of designer Mark D. Sikes’s West Hollywood house.
“I think there’s peace in balance,” says designer Kay Douglass, who furnished the family room of an Atlanta house with two Charlotte chairs and ottomans, two vintage iron coffee tables found at a fair in France, two table lamps and two vintage side tables that belonged to the owners — lacquered in Orange Spice to give them new life.
In a Rhode Island house designed by Tom Scheerer, the family room’s sofa pairs Clarence House blue corduroy with seat covers in Peter Dunham’s Samarkand. A bold-patterned Indian rug echoes azure tiles in the kitchen, framed by faux-bois–painted walls and trim in Benjamin Moore’s Linen White.
