Family Room Design Ideas : The OC Ranch Reno

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! Here is the design board for this fun family room:

Design – Wikipedia

Drafting of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or of a system; process of creation; act of creativity and innovation

A design is a plan or specification for the construction of an object or system or for the implementation of an activity or process, or the result of that plan or specification in the form of a prototype, product or process. The verb to design expresses the process of developing a design. In some cases, the direct construction of an object without an explicit prior plan (such as in craftwork, some engineering, coding, and graphic design) may also be considered to be a design activity. The design usually has to satisfy certain goals and constraints, may take into account aesthetic, functional, economic, or socio-political considerations, and is expected to interact with a certain environment. Major examples of designs include architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit

The living room pairs a custom-made sofa upholstered in Rogers & Goffigon fabric with a bespoke coffee table designed by JDP Interiors and made by Spivak Designs. The rug is a vintage Oushak rug from Lawrence of La Brea Rugs. Photography by Jeff Mindel.

Joyce Downing Pickens of JDP Interiors looked to chic Los Angeles design boutiques, The Apartment by The Line and Garde, as well as her client’s collection of surrealist art for inspiration when piecing together the design of this 2,421-square-foot bachelor pad in West Hollywood. The home, a new construction, lacked character, so Pickens sought to insert a fresh sense of style and character throughout by adding statement lighting and mixing vintage furniture finds with customized pieces. Choosing pieces that “complimented and infused subtle surrealist notions,” and setting everything against a neutral backdrop, Pickens expertly juxtaposes delicate pieces with chunkier ones for unexpected pairings that seem perfectly

Small Living Room Decor Ideas

One popular strategy to make the room feel bigger is to decorate the room in shades of white and beige with an interesting rug. Some of these living rooms have geometric rugs while others have soft, fluffy shag carpet. A mix of patterns and textures keeps small living rooms from being boring.
