This week on Room by Room with FormFire Glassworks, we move from the first step of semi-private space in the home, the kitchen, into the first more private location, the Family Room.
Although the Family Room is by no means as sacrosanct as a bedroom in terms of privacy (we do allow close friends and even minor acquaintances in), this area is the space to let your hair down. But just because this room is not the public face of the modern house doesn’t mean that you should let all style fall by the wayside. The Modern Family Room is a place for fun and family. It is often the center for TV watching and movie nights; a place for kids to play on the ground with toys or just relax in a chair with a good book; the location of family game night and friendly poker games.
The informality of the kitchen area seeps into the Family Room. You are reminded of games and fun with a vinyl wall decal that sets the mood. The unconventional shelving unit is packed with board games, books, movies and fun toys. You sit in a rocking chair that is so far from that of your grandmother that it makes you snicker. The teens flop around on floor cushions while you grab a bowl of popcorn, and the little ones play with their toys on a fabulous rug full of built-in fun!
Join me next week as we enter the Modern Bedroom.
