Modern Eclectic Family Room: Before and After

Today I’m excited to reveal the installation of a modern eclectic family room I designed in collaboration with Nicole Davis. This space is one part of a larger project that I absolutely loved working on. Our clients were a dream and the spaces were such a beautiful transformation. See the before and after photos of this family room space below.






The goal for this design was to create a fresh, clean living space that would accommodate a family of 8. This is their main gathering area, used for entertaining and everyday living. We wanted it to be livable but still sophisticated and inviting.

Two Dwell Studio Statement Chairs define the space. We chose these for their clean, lines and unique mid-century design. They look beautiful from all angles. (Similar chairs here)


One of my favorite elements is the large, plush, Stark area rug. It really lifted the color of the room and is so soft and comfortable. (Similar Rug here and here )


All the walls and moulding in the room were painted Benjamin Moore White White to tie in with the kitchen area and brighten up the space. The soft, abstract art is showcased against the white fireplace, painted to match the walls. Wood beams were added for warmth and rich contrast.


We styled the space with pops of color from the pillows and added some more warmth with a side table. Fun Chatbooks of the family fan the table to add personality.


When we finished installing this family room it really change the whole mood of the kitchen/living area. It went from a darker, less cohesive space to a bright and fresh entertaining area. I hope you enjoy seeing this transformation. Stay tuned for more of this modern eclectic home.

Have a wonderful Monday!

    OMG Becki and Nicole! You hit it out of the park with this one! It totally looks like a different house! I am always amazed by your designs! I wish you lived closer so you could come see what I have and give some advice. Please share more of your designs, they make my day:)

    Hi Becki,

    I love the green tree in the living room corner. Would you mind sharing where we can find that. If you found it locally, can you possibly share the manufacturer so I can locate it locally? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Becky,
    I really love those studio chairs and would to find something closer that replicates that great organic relaxed quality they have. Any other suggestions that would be similar besides the Jonathan Adler ones?
    Thank you!

    I am obsessed with this stark rug. Can you quote me a price on it? Maybe order it in for me? Also is it more white/gray or white/brown?
