Designer Jessica Bennett uses comfy furniture, kid-friendly fabrics and a classic style for this open family room that combines living and dining.
A color palette of brown, tan and green brings a warm, earthy quality to the space and also works well for small children, since the dark tones are less likely to show stains. The comfy sectional is a great spot for hanging out as a family, as well as entertaining.
The large square ottoman is a perfect choice for small kids because of its soft edges, but it doesn't sacrifice style with beautiful tufting and turned legs. It will also double as extra seating when the family entertains.
