This room has been a challenge for us in our new house. We had a very spacious family room in our old house but gave that up when we moved here about 6 months ago. This room opens up to the kitchen (which is something I thought I'd hate..i know that sounds crazy!! but I do like it now). Ultimately our plan for this space is to turn this room into a dining space for the kitchen (since we have no real eat in space for a kitchen table) and add a great room where the current dining room is, but thats about three years off. So we are living in what it is now. I know the furniture isn't the best but it will be moving soon into our basement and we will be getting some new pieces. When we first moved in our plan was to remove the wood stove and drywall over the brick and remove the brick hearth to give us more space. One day (when my hubby was at work) I painted the brick white and we've kinda grown to love the stove and the character it adds to the space, especially centered between the builtins. I added wallpaper to the built ins to add some visual interest and we replaced the ceiling fan with a drum light and we painted over all traces of red painted trim and molding in the room!!
