The living room has historically been an over-decorated room used mainly to receive and impress visitors. This room was a status symbol for outside guests, which is why the decor was typically dressed up or done to the nines.

3 Ways to Design a Fun and Functional Basement Family Room

Chastity Fabry

For most of us, the first ideas for basements that come to mind often involve turning it into a laundry room, a media and game room, or some sort of multipurpose space that has a little bit of everything—a big sofa, a TV, substantial storage pieces, maybe even a pool table. And more often than not, it results in a room that’s all function and not exactly warm and inviting.

Family Room Design Ideas : The OC Ranch Reno

Chastity Fabry

I am so excited to be getting to the point in the OC Ranch Reno process to be planning the furniture and decor design plan! This house will be used as more of a vacation home, so the design plan is going to lean more toward a beachy/CA col vibe. I am such a visual person that I have a hard time doing anything without creating a design board. Whether for my own home or client’s homes. It is so helpful to put together a board of the basics so that you can get the overall feel of a space before you spend the money to put it together. These family room design ideas are no exception!
