“Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life.” -Albert Einstein
The family room. The name alone conjures up memories of a warm, welcoming space to hang out with those you love most. A family room should be cozy and comfortable, but most of all, casual. Save the formal furniture for the living room. You should love your family room as much as your favorite pair of jeans, and it should fit you equally as well.
Achieving this level of accidental intention is easier when you see what others have done. Let our favorite family room ideas serve as a springboard to design your family’s favorite space.

“When we started, a textile brand with this ‘lived-in’ elegant look wasn’t readily available, so I had to create it myself. Most other textile companies at the time were very formal,” CEO and Creative Director, Hilde Leiaghat tells me. “Whereas, we curate the designs for our brand with a sense of calm and comfort in mind. Everything has to FEEL good. The touch and hand feel are truly what sell our products.”

Designing a room online and taking the plunge on products sight unseen may be, for some, too big of a leap of faith. That’s where roomLift comes in. The interior design service makes the process tangible by sending its users a curated box of interior recommendations, like paint chips and spec cards that recommend furniture, after they take an online style quiz.
Here’s how it works: Users begin by filling out a questionnaire that helps roomLift hone in on the style and functionality the design seeker is after. That includes answering questions about how the room is used, if pets and/or children live in the home—that white couch, while pretty to look at, might not be so functional for a family of four with a spunky Labrador—and how many people the space needs to accommodate.
This is also when users can indicate their overall budget, if they’re incorporating any
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
