Whether you call it a living room, family room, or den, you’ve got that space in your home where family and friends gather. Florida’s temperate climate and lush tropical foliage gives you tons of options for decorating a family room that impresses your friends and can be comfortably enjoyed by your family. Whether you want a formal living room or a casual family room, these decorating tips will help you to pull together the perfect look for your home.
In a land where it seems like summer almost all year long, tropical decor fits right in. Materials that connect the location to your decor are key to creating the right atmosphere in your family room. Tropical textures mixed with bright prints work together in tropical-style furniture from Tommy Bahama. The Bali Hai Capri Square Glass Top Cocktail Table from Tommy Bahama anchors your room with tropical charm. The tempered glass top supported by leather-wrapped reeded legs and decorative rattan stretchers give you the perfect place to rest your beverages.
Rattan furniture pair with a natural fiber area rug to complete the look. Accessorize with botanical prints, large pieces of coral, and plenty of potted plants. Natural shades or sheers keep the look light and breezy.
To bring a little southern coastal flair into your family room, start with a sunny palette. Lots of crisp, cool whites combined with pastels immediately transport you to the beach. Pastel aquas and greens in the throw pillows echo vivid ocean colors. Bare windows keep the room light and bright. The Put Your Feet Up Table by Paula Deen invites you to do just that.
The soft palette and comfortable furniture create a tranquil oasis that will become the heart of your home. It utilizes pale blue and crisp whites without seeming cold and stark. The overall look is stylish and pretty with a casual, laid-back feel that captures the relaxed pace of Florida living.
An open, airy family room with sleek contemporary decor gives you plenty of space for entertaining family and friends or relaxing on your own. While some people prefer modern and others prefer classic, there is room in the middle for a little of both. Juxtaposing chic, architectural shapes with warm woods bring in favorites from the past while looking toward the future.
