Our family room is due for a much needed makeover. It’s decorated with pictures from our old house and while the furniture doesn’t look bad, it is used. It’s also got a couple of small holes in it; on the cushion, the arm and a few of the pillows. This is thanks to our dogs having reign of the house and not being kicked off the furniture during our week long honeymoon/family vacation. Let’s just say that I was not a happy camper when I came home to the damage.
As you can see, our family room doesn’t have much style. It’s just rather bland if you ask me. I was kind of going for the Safari look since our couch pillows have Safari animals on them. Well I never got around to redecorating, and now I’m just not sure what I want.
I know that I’m in need to help though because I really want a room that I can enjoy. I barely spend any time in this room because it’s just so blah. It doesn’t feel cozy or homey to me. So I headed to La-Z-Boy for some furniture inspiration.
I came across the Mackenzie Sofa right away as it’s similar in style to our current set of furniture. Once landing on the product page, I was able to choose my color from a wide assortment of color options. I couldn’t tell you why I was so drawn to this one if I’m looking for a new look. I just was. Maybe I have a subconscious fear of letting go?
After browsing the sofas for awhile, I found the Room Inspirations page and was surprised to see full design packages. I couldn’t believe that La-Z-Boy offered so much more than your basic sofas and recliners. I just fell in love with the Sinclair room. I absolutely adore the sleek design and the pop of color in the decor and rug. I’m not so sure how a light colored couch would work with a house full of boys and dogs though! I suppose a mom can only dream.
Since those light colors just aren’t an option for me, I decided to make up my own room. I found piece after piece that I just simply fell in love with! To keep with the same color and vision that I originally had for the room, I would do the Mackenzie Sofa with this super comfortable looking Niagara Reclining Chair for The Man.
I found this Vecchio Entertainment Console that would contrast nicely against the stone colors in our fireplace. Of course our big screen 3D Smart TV would look great on it too!
I’m easily inspired, especially when I can actually touch and feel the product. However, I wouldn’t call myself a designer.
