Today I am sharing a non-food related post – it’s a peek of the inside of my home. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the transformation of our family room, but if you don’t I hope you don’t mind me sharing it here on the blog. I’m just so excited about the way it turned out.
I’d love to share more before and after’s of my home and would love to hear from you. Would you like to see more of mi casa?
We have been living in the same house for almost 14 years. I honestly can’t believe how fast the years have gone. And as you can guess my taste and style has changed, but our outdated family room did not.
Check out what our family room looked like before. I was ready to part with this oversized sectional that we had owned for years, and was looking to add more space and color in the room.
When it comes to redecorating a room in my home I get overwhelmed. I wish I could say that I know what I’m doing, but unfortunately, I do not. Thankfully, I found an expert (Kim Jarrett) and she came over, measured our room, and gave me suggestions for furniture, art, and accessories.
I wanted a neural color palette, but a comfortable space with textures and fabric that are kid friendly and compliment my existing Mexican touches throughout.
We focused on purchasing a smaller sectional so that we could also fit a sitting area in the room too.
Sitting areas make the room conversational and help increase the amount of seating when entertaining. Plus, these chairs also recline so they are also comfy for TV watching!
The beautiful rug is from Wayfair and the pillows really make this room pop, and give the room character.
We kept the curtains white so that they were not the focal point but added warmth and texture to the room.
We also reframed an art print by Pablo Picasso that I have had for years and could not part with. And how beautiful is this coffee table?
Another look at the before…
I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a project you have been longing to tackle? I would love to hear more about it – leave me a comment below!

I’m a new reader/subscriber and love your new family room. It looks bigger and much brighter. I am also loving your recipes. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
Love this post and transformation! I’d definitely check out more content like this… thanks for sharing!!
Looks beautiful, modern and bright with the pops of color.
Where did you purchase the brown chairs? I like them because they don’t look like recliners.
Thank you! They are from Pottery Barn and are called Tyler
Looks great! Yes I would love to see more of your home and or decorating from everyday things to special occasion. Sometimes just a small changes does wonders. I recently changed our family room and painted both that and our dining room…boy was that a job. But like yourself after 20 years I figured a change was due!. Thanks for all you do..keep up the great work! Oh and I love how your mom commented..my mom would have done the same!
You definitely got your money’s worth with your decorator, Kim. Beautiful results. The new room looks light. airy and fresh! Great choices!
Looks so much brighter and refreshed!
It looks amazing, what a difference. I saw the before for years, never thought there was anything wrong with it. It was so cozy. Now it looks like a new house all together
