I have received so many emails and comments asking where the accessories, lighting, and other things in my family room came from. It is so much easier just to address it in a post so here we go!
I have always adored pharmacy lamps. I started searching online for one and all the ones I liked were from LampsPlus.com. Then when I decided to get rid of the ceiling fan, I knew I needed a floor fan to replace it. I got on and googled "floor fan" and guess what? The one I fell in love with was also from LampsPlus.com. They were kind enough to send them both to me for my family room makeover. The lamp is called the Robert Abbey Natural Brass Pharmacy Desk Lamp. The fan is a 16" Sutter Floor Fan. They both fit in so well with the feel of the room. My home was built in 1938 and I felt like these were perfect.
IKEA!!! Oh how I love thee IKEA..... We have an IKEA store about 45 minutes from us. It is the Draper IKEA store and every time I tell my kids that we are going there they cheer :) They have gorgeous home decor items from traditional to modern, kids stuff, and yummy food. What more could you want??? Oh yeah, killer prices :) They have that too.
All the white flower pots/planters, the white frames (one I painted brass), my curtains, the baskets under my bench, the pitcher, and the blanket/throw all came from IKEA.
I discovered Joss and Main through blogging friends. I have been super happy with everything I have ordered from them. The things I ordered for the family room were this round wood frame (there were actually 2 in the pack) and this wreath. I also bought to live rosemary topiary plants that are on my fireplace.
You know when you find exactly what you want and it is on SALE or CLEARANCE??? That happened to me twice and both items came from Pottery Barn. I checked and the light is not currently on sale but they do have lighting sales every once in a while so keep checking back. These Calhoun Pendant Lights were my big splurge for the room. I have never spent that much on a light before and I needed TWO of them! But I couldn't find anything else that even came close so I bit the bullet and bought them since they were on sale. They were $115 each on sale. The pillow was an outdoor pillow that was on clearance and is no longer available.
I just noticed the shade looks a little distorted in the bigger picture. It is not squatty like it seems.
On one of my very many trips to Target I spotted this fabulous lamp shade. I had originally planned on using an off white shade but when I saw this I knew it was made for my room!
One of the most asked questions was "What is the wall color?" I LOVE this paint color. It is the perfect yellow. It has enough tan in it that it does not come off too bright. In fact it acts as a neutral. But it is still clearly yellow. Perfection. It is called Shortbread and is from the Martha Stewart Collection at Home Depot. I got it mixed in Behr Ultra interior satin.
My rug! I love this rug. My kids love this rug. We have spent more time on the rug than the couch since we unrolled it :) I still need to get a rug pad for it but it is so plush that even without it is is comfortable. The texture is awesome. It has some carpet strands that are matte and some are sort of shiny. It is subtle but makes it look so much more expensive than it really is. And speaking of price.... I bought it with a gift card and I cannot for the life of me find the receipt, but I know it was around $300 with tax. If you have ever shopped for a rug you know it is so hard to find big area rugs that don't break the bank. I searched for two months online and was so stressed. Then while on one of my many Home Depot runs I decided to go see their rugs. In their "Special Order" section I found this (only available in store so there is no link, sorry)! The brand is Lambart and is a custom shag. The color is linen. The cool thing is they have custom patterns as well. You can have stripes, chevron, etc in any of the colors they have. So fun!
I think I covered it all (whew!) but if there is something you have a question about that I didn't cover, please just leave a comment and I will get back to you :)
