House Tour: Family Room Reveal

I have been reluctant to post my family room since I can't seem to take a good photo.  Plus, every time my mom visits she says everything looks so much better in person than on my blog, sooooo maybe my New Year's resolution should be to learn how to take better interior photos on my camera.

Interior photography is not my forte, as it's so difficult to get the lighting and angle correct in order to really give an accurate portrayal of what it looks like.  I was going to wait until my Dad came out here since he has all of the fancy flashes and expertise to take them, but I couldn't wait to share.  Here it is:

Media Console-Home Decorators
Sofa-Room & Board
Sofa pillows- Custom Trina Turk for Schumacher
Custom Pindler & Pindler (Gray Velvet)
Coffee Table-World Market (From my other Family Room)
Chairs-Crate & Barrel
Chair (Kidney) Pillows-Custom Trina Turk for Schumacher
Decorative Vases-Bellacor
Side Table-Nate Berkus for HSN
Lamp-Restoration Hardware
Bench-Ballard Design with Upholstered Trina Turk for Schumacher fabric
Art-My Travel Photos via Easy Canvas Prints

  11. Really nice job! Love the tv console, rug and ottoman fabric!

  12. I'm very new to your blog and have spent an inexcusable amount of time here! I think your room here is lovely. Could you reveal, if you can recall the name of the mirror sourced from Wisteria? I visited there site but the closest one I found seems to be called Venetian, however it does not look as grand as yours. Thanks so'much!

    ps I am a San Diego girl too, currently doing the NYC thing. .and sometimes desperately miss the perfect weather

  13. Their site. Not there site. My degree in English is really serving me!

  14. Hi Michelle! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog! I don't recall the name of the mirror and after checking out their site it doesn't seem like they have anything similar any longer. Wisteria's only store is in Dallas, and they have an amazing scratch and dent section where I scored the mirror about 2 years ago. That is one of the perks of living here although I will always consider myself a San Diego girl at heart!
