Family Room finally gets that Pop of Color! {Mohawk Giveaway}

Welcome to my little place I call home! Today we are going to focus on my family room area. Now this area was in dire need of color. A quick trip to my favorite stores, this and thats... and she is popping now!

A real beaut .. am I right? Grab your coffee, kick off your shoes and get cozy on my couch! Let's stroll through this amazing transformation!


So here is my poor girl before. She looks so alone, cold and dead. 


Waa- Bam! Hello cutie, can I have your number?
 I knew I needed to add pops of color, but more importantly I needed to brighten this space up! 


Starting with throw pillows. Every couch deserves to have some on them. 
Really- they do! It's like us wearing mascara...just finishes the look!


I was lacking a side table before. HomeGoods took care of that for me! I added in this white shabby distressed table. This created a light air in the room against that dark couch. You see the sheer panels behind the table. I found those at kohl's .. they were perfect! A fun flashy pattern, but still light and really pulls everything together nice!


Gotta keep it real.. this Modern Botanical Area Rug from Mohawk. It really had me at hello.
I built this entire room off this rug, and am beyond excited how it turned out. It anchors down this room perfectly!


The Breakdown
Throw Pillows: HomeGoods & Target
Gold Chenille Throw: Target
Side Table: HomeGoods
Red Lamp: Hobby Lobby
Window Treatment: Roman Shades from Payless Decor, Panels from Kohls
Rug: Mohawk Home

The boys and I are loving our new family room. It really does just make me smile....those simple little things. Do you have a space in your home that could use some color.. I challenge you:

Find a rug and build. That's right...you can do it!

 Ohhhh you need a rug? Well I may have something up my family room blouse! Mohawk is giving one lucky reader their choice of rug - that's right. So no excuses people.. enter enter, win win and build! 
a Rafflecopter giveaway


But wait... my sweet pal Jessica over at Mom 4 Real just gave her family room a poppin' cottage pretty look.. And she is giving away a Mohawk rug as well! Double those chances people!



Disclosure: I received this Mohawk rug to review at no cost to me. All opinions are my own.

  14. I could totally use a new rugh in the family room, but we don't even have one in the dining room, so I'd put one there, first! LOVE the way your family room turned out, SO gorgeous!

  15. I neeeeeed this more than you can imagine! We just pulled out all of our downstairs carpet (due to our sick old cat who couldn't stop using the carpet as his bathroom - eeew!), and we have no idea what we're going to do now. We're going back and forth between wood flooring and painting the concrete, but in the meantime my poor kiddos are hating us for not having something comfy on the floor for them to sit on. I would LOVE to win this! *fingers crossed* :)

  16. I love it!! I just painted our kitchen table and chairs and I'm dreaming of a pretty little yellow or aqua rug to go under it. Your room looks amazing- great POP of color! :)
