Beach Inspired Family Room Makeover: Before and After

Dear St Louis House,

Are you ready for a before and after of your family room? You are a bit of an odd shape, built directly over a garage, long and thin with just one window.

Here you are in your before state, a bit bland with a carpet color almost the same as your walls.

After a wonderful holiday in Florida, a plan was mulled over, formed and you were destined to become a beachy room even though you are about as far away from the sea as you can get in the jolly good old USA.

You are not quite finished yet …needing a little wall art, but the bones of the room are in place.

You have a very sea scape palette, Aqua breeze walls, a sink in luxury sofa the color of drift wood and a glorious loop carpet the hue of sand. Nautical and beach inspired accent pieces  ( decorating with shells, Monkey Fist rope balls, fish net coin jar) are dotted throughout.

The curtains and pillows both come from Ikea …I have been desperate to find the right room to use these curtains for ages and they fit here perfectly.


I hope you like it!
Love from
