Game Room Mini-Makeover

I am in the process of a mini-makeover of our game/play room upstairs.  I think this will be one of our major hang out spots starting in the next couple weeks, so we invested in another flat screen for the room (we are self proclaimed TV junkies).  Other than that, I am making some tweaks with new pillows and other accessories I already have.  I would really like the room to be comfortable, inviting, and functional, yet still pulled together in an aesthetically pleasing way, even though I can imagine it will probably become overrun by toys eventually.  The furniture in the room is this sectional and chair I had in our last home:

 I recently purchased this ottoman, which I pictured before on the blog:

The previous pillows that are in the first picture really blend with the couch but they don't pull together the added gray tones that I wanted to incorporate.  So with some design dollars I accumulated at West Elm, I picked up these pillows (currently, there are some great new pillows there):

I also finally hung some photos on the wall, that I already had in Ikea Ribba frames and was hung in the last couple of places we lived, so now the room has a much warmer, homey feel.

I would love to add some paint because it is still looking very bland, some window coverings, and a side table.  Once I do, I will share the finished space!


  1. I love your ikat ottoman, it's so chic! You have some great furniture I am sure your game room will turned out great when it's all finished!


  2. I like that niche in the wall and the entire colour palette. It looks inviting and cozy. Have a wonderful week, Kate! xo
