Family Room Decorating Ideas

I love the colorful Family Room decorating ideas found in this image. If you look carefully you’ll see so many creative uses of color.

The first thing to note is the wall and trim colors. Just enough soft, subtle peach tones in the wall color to create some personality and bring out the white trim and crown molding. The quiet back drop allows for color and pattern to be placed on the upholstered pieces and accents.

I love the balance of color usage in the Family Room. The color palette consists of a bright tangerine, aqua in varying shades, tan and cream. How is it used effectively?

  • Solid colors on the upholstered pieces anchor the space and balance the colors evenly.
  • Patterns are used to add some fun, with the boldest shades and patterns on the pillow and a bit more subtlety on the ottoman and foot stool.
  • Soft aqua tones on the Roman Shades add a bit of color and also a balance to the space. Just enough fabric and density while leaving the area full of natural light.
  • Subtle stripes on the area rug bring the colors onto the floor, in a good way  🙂

Notice how the color palette continues into the Dining Nook. A bit of color on the chairs, a nice mix of wood finishes to add some warmth and bright tangerine orange tones in the florals.

All in all it’s a great balance of color, shape and texture!
