Today, I’m excited to share the full reveal of the Talega South Project family room. I really enjoyed designing this inviting and livable space, for a wonderful family of six. My vision was to create a stylish space with a modern coastal vibe, without sacrificing comfort.
This family room joins a light and bright, white kitchen. To maintain the cool, fresh feel of the great room, the walls were painted Silver Drop by Behr.
The basis for this cool, coastal design was a neutral palette. I choose a large comfortable sofa in a light linen and soft, gray slipcovered chairs to blend with the wall color. The Moroccan style rug, Jaipur Zuri from Rugs Direct, grounded the space with a more contemporary style. It’s plush pile and neutral colors were the perfect fit for this livable space.
For a twist on coastal style, I chose vintage and watercolor textiles. This collected mix of pillows and throws were layered on the sofa and chairs to add interest with soothing colors. Their unique, abstract designs give the space a more modern look.
One of my favorite elements of the design are the black accents that give the room a little edge. The black palm wall art from Minted expresses California cool style, while providing a crisp focal point for the room. A black pedestal table and mid-century style tripod lamp were placed to tie in the existing fireplace. When I looked for a coffee table, I knew I wanted one that would work with young children. I love the the round, hammered metal coffee table adds some shine.
To accommodate large gatherings, I added pink leather stools for extra seating and a hint of fresh color. My goal was for all the colors in the space to evoke a light and airy, coastal vibe. I finished by styling the room with some modern vases, a natural wood tray and a couple of plants to add some warmth and an organic element to the space.
It’s always fun to create spaces that people can really enjoy and live in. I love how this space is casual and inviting but has crisp, modern elements to give it polish. I hope you have enjoyed learning more about this modern coastal living room. To get the look for your own home see below. Have a great day!
