Recently, I realized that it had been a LONG TIME since I had shared any updated photos of our family room. The truth is, over the years, I’ve tweaked things here and there but nothing really felt substantial enough to share here. However, when I was going through old photos the other day, I realized, all of those little tweaks had really added up to major changes in how our family room looks and feels. So, I decided to snap some photos the other day while things were feeling pulled together and the leaves were still in full Fall force.
This is truly one of those spaces that is ever-evolving. It’s such a happy space to be in with so much light coming in from the many windows. It’s surrounded by woods and there’s always a pretty view at any point during the day, feeling bright and cheerful in the afternoon and warm and cozy in the evenings. It really is our favorite space to spend time in.
A lot of the major elements have stayed the same over the years, but pieces have been swapped out here and there. Whenever I’ve feeling the creative bug, I like to move things around the house and give old pieces life in a new space. That’s always my biggest suggestion before running out and buying new items for your home. It’s amazing what a little change can do…
I did some digging and realized that the last time I shared photos of this space was in this post back in February of 2016! WHAT?! Here’s a look at how it looked back then.
I think the most noticeable changes here might be how much my fiddle leaf has grown!! It’s surviving AND thriving, not something I’ve been known to provide house plants with!
I like elements of both “versions” and while I liked how it felt back then, I’m really loving how it has slowly evolved over the years. I’m excited to see how it evolves again over the next few years!
Speaking of evolving, I can’t wrap this up with a whopper of a “Before & After” for you…Ready for it?
Well, I guess things really have changed ;)
