The Friday Fix: The All-Inclusive Family Room
Whole House Organization Challenge: Week 8
This week we've been talking about family room organization on the blog. One of the hardest things about shared spaces is that they must satisfy the needs of multiple persons.
Not a totally unreasonable request. After all, the idea behind a family room is to create a space where household members can come together to bond.
The larger the family, though, the more difficult it becomes to incorporate everyone's interests. The work-around is often to try to represent every member in small doses.

Design Inspiration for the Family Room
The number of folks in my household matches the size of my home - small at just 2 people. But my husband and I both come from large families. So using our personal experience, together we came up with the mood board below.
think it's a perfect blend of comfort, high style and personality. What's even better is that it functions for every member of the household.
Family Room Design Source List
I have been crushing on this console from West Elm for a while now. Not only is it stylish, but it's a great place to hide all the board games, headsets, gaming consoles, books and movies; perfect for teens gamers. The console also offers ample space for that large flat screen TV for the man of the house.
These moroccan inspired beauties are the ideal hiding spot for the all the toys, rattles, floor blankets, etc for the toddlers of the family.
Wire Basket Tables
Need a place to store the sofa throws? Look no further than these practical wire baskets that double as tables. There's one more perk: If you filled these with colorful throws, they actually become pieces of "artwork" in the room. So cool! Like I always say, double duty in king in small spaces.
The pops of color break up the space and are a welcoming distraction from all of the muted tones in the room. We also selected simple, inexpensive prints from various Etsy vendors. Simply combine the prints with family photos to create a gallery wall with personal and artistic touches.
Sofa and Rug
With everyone else taken care of, there needs to be a place for Mom. Hands down, the sofa and rug are the coziest pieces in the entire mood board. The Cloud Sofa by DesignSelected.com is ample enough to hold at least four people comfortably. Ahh...running my toes through that furry rug sounds awesome on a Friday night.
And this is this week's Friday's Fix. What do you think? Please let me know in the comments below.
