A Family Room Plan Inspired by Muted Tones

Friday, August 31, 2018

With fall being right around the corner, people are going to begin reaching for their pumpkin spiced lattes and they'll also be craving cozy and relaxing living spaces.  A place to curl up with their PSL and watch their favourite movies/tv shows or to read their favourite book.

Now, everyone's definition of what they consider to be a cozy space is different.  Some people naturally gravitate to all white, others prefer dark and moody colours for the cooler months.  I love the idea of muted tones and layered textures.

When I think of what I'd like to see in a space that welcomes you with open arms and pleads with you to kick your feet up, I think of fabric sofas, textured rugs with warm vibes, hints of blue and pink and gold metals.  Of course there will always be room for greenery in our house, be it real or fake.  I firmly believe that every space needs at least one plant or flower arrangement!

I absolutely love to add knits and velvets to our rooms come fall.  You can change one or two pillows for this, or you can simply add to the pillow arrangement that you currently have going.  For throws, I'll keep the others, but I'll place the knit or faux fur throws at the top of the basket so that they can always be seen.

If you are working with an all white colour scheme, just think texture for the cooler months.  Fabrics & textiles are a great way to weave cozier texture into your decor as well careful selective decorative items.

Great alternatives:
Are you loving muted tones as well right now?

Wishing you all a lovely long weekend!  I can't believe that it's back to school next week!

Cheers,
