My Comfort Zone!

My family room is the hub of all activity in my household! It  is my comfort zone where I feel the most comfortable. We spend almost every minute of our day here. The kids play, fight, I unwind here, teach them, scream at them, blog...... ......you get the picture :-)......everything happens here!! We spend time as a family every evening and discuss our day in this room. I like to keep this room clutter free and without frills! While I love to decorate my home with interesting finds....keeping my home open and spacious is as important to me! While tables filled with curios, numerous potted plants, and knick knacks....look pretty......it would bother me if I had too many things around me ! I admire people who make their home look like a magazine cover and yet manage to feel comfortable in that space.

Luckily for me, I do have a another living room that the kids stay away from and that area stays intact most of the time. That space is for me... the decor obsessed lady while this space defines me as the mom, the wife and the homemaker :-)

I want a room in my home where everyone feels comfortable and relaxed.....
What do you feel? Can comfort and style go hand in hand? Are they both not equally important for your home? I am constantly striving to strike that balance.....

Happy Wednesday my friends.....

Style and comfort can definitely go hand and hand. I think you've proved it here.

You said it! The family room(basement!) is where the TV is, where the boys (the 39 y/o and the 7 y/o!) can toss a football, and eat snacks(think crumbs on the floor---yuck!)and where I just have to let them be.....

While the living room is actually reserved for the grown ups to hang out in....(let your imagination run wild on the "definition" of grown ups here!) ;)

Sometimes I feel like a wicked woman for defending my space so ferociously, but I think if it's good for my mental peace, it's good for the family (right????). :)

Mu family room is certainly different from my living room. I think you have the right idea!

I can't function if things aren't neat and orderly. Even when my children were small, they knew that the end of the day things (toys) were to be cleaned up and put away. I was lucky to have cabinets to stow away clutter out of sight. I love your family room. It's very stylish. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a kind note.

Striking the right balance can be a challenge. But I think your on the right track. Thanks for visiting!

Comfort any day over Style :-). House is to live. But being the design freaks we are - we need stylish homes too and that's what we all are beautifully balancing isn't it :-).

I think comfort and style can and should go hand in hand. You've found a great mix that works for you and your family. Enjoy.

I think your family room is the perfect combination of pretty and practical! I adore your area carpet- it has just the colors I love. Thanks for visiting my blog this evening. I hope to see you again!

Over the years I've changed a lot, I no longer have anything formal and I feel more comfortable in my home. My living room is very casual, but them all of my rooms are. Your rooms look great, I think they are stylish and comfortable looking. Have a great week!

Comfort and style are important in any personal space so one enjoys spending time in it all the more. Love the natural light in your room and the touches of blue.

Hi Anu, when my children were home we had a family room where everything took place, except meals of course. This room was downstairs and then on the main floor we had a living room which was always kept "just so" in case company came. We were always very comfortable with this. I found and am now following you through My Romantic Home and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
