Go With the Flow

Positioning furniture was challenging in this family room because it opens to the adject kitchen, foyer and back hallway. Small matching armchairs don't block the flow into the room, making the space feel open and inviting.

Custom-built furniture and printed drapery add character to this classic and comfortable family room for five.

Window Treatment

To add a colorful punch to the room's neutral color palette, designer Rebecca Driggs added bold striped drapes. Corresponding accent pillows brighten the light furniture.

Perfect Fit

A custom-built 110" sofa nestles perfectly between the built-in bookshelf and the door to the porch. "Don't be afraid to go custom!" says designer Rebecca Driggs.

Top Shelf

Built-in bookshelves provide extra storage without taking up additional space. The white shelving pops in contrast to the rich toffee-colored walls.
