We recently purchased our home, and we need some help with our family room.
The room measures are 17' x 16' 7". I have attached a floor plan as well as several pictures but take into consideration that floor will be all wood floor not carpet as pictured, we have changed it.
you can watch the entire house in this link:
Depending on the light, the wall color looks like a taupe, warm grey, or sometimes with a hint of light pink. I'm open to change the walls color to white tones since we are looking for very sleek and modern look.
Our house is single home traditional construction but we want to make it look more modern and stylish. The room will be our main "family" zone - watching tv, entertaining, etc. We have a newborn baby so probably you should take note of that in order to provide child friendly designs.
We are looking for a place that both looks elegant and comfortable very modern and sleek in light colors. That will work for having friends over for drinks and also kids around. A media unit wall is imperative and should coordinate with fire place
The materials should be very durable and easy to clean, while still being comfortable and look sophisticated we don't want a childish place.
In terms of our style, we like BO Concept, Design Within Reach, Room and Board, knoll, smart furniture, all modern when we can afford it and combine with more budget friendly stores like cb2, lexmod, some elements from west elm and why not IKEA. We like some eclectic subtle touches but not too much maybe some industrial retro chic elements that gives personality to the room since I don't like the place too matchy matchy.
We want the ceiling lamp to be a conversational point in the house so I have attached some inspiration to consider but not mandatory I'm open to suggestions.
I want comfort but a fancy place budget friendly. I DO NOT like the pottery barn look at all, and prefer solid colors or subtle patterns. SLEEK SLEEK SLEEK!.
I usually prefer whites, shades of grey, cream, neutrals with an occasional pop of color, judiciously applied, can be a good thing.
Please try to keep the design relatively child friendly - i.e. no sharp metal corners, or glass.
I like bookcases and decoration but not too much clutter. I want de space look clean and spacious.
I am looking for an excellent use of the space, comfort, style. There should be seating for at least 8, but more is certainly acceptable. Our budget I'd say 8K-11K to splurge in a good sofa a media unit that like bo concept or usonahome.com kind but less expensive and coordinate with affordable yet stylish pieces for the rest of the furniture.
I would like a space plan with either sofa and lounge chairs, or a sectional + lounge chairs, rugs, cocktail/coffee tables, lighting with sputnik style pendant lamp, wall system for media unit, fireplace mantel ideas, artwork suggestions, wall and window treatment ideas. Please use and list specific items when you place the furniture, and please specify the fabric type and color. Also, 3D views and elevations will certainly be helpful.
