Neutral with Texture

HI Friends!
I am sharing my favorite room with you today. It’s our family room on the main level of our house.

There are two steps down to this comfy space from our Music Room/Office
Mazi will show you…
A lot of the accents in here you’ve probably seen before from our last house.
Like this horse canvas that I found at Homegoods a few years ago. He is amazing! I haven’t found such a great piece like that in a really long time, although, I keep my eye out for them.
Our coffee table is just a tag sale trunk. It’s full of photos from when my babies were small. I need to get some great looking wheels to rise it up a few inches..
I washed all the slip covers on our furniture yesterday. They smell so fresh today so I wish you could be here to sit and chat with me. The sun is shining through and I have fresh coffee or orange juice for you. 🙂
Our rock mantel and fireplace are a bit off center (?). To even that out I put a small stand here. It also covers an outlet. One day it would be cool to redo the off center part of the mantel in weathered wood or something. 
The windows in this room are tall. It brings great light in but it’s still private because of the mature trees out front.
The windows are low in this house because it was built in the 1970’s. I know the building code for Utah calls for higher window ledges in new homes. The large windows here are one reason why I love this house – Sun!
Mazi can even keep watch out for squirrels since she is such a shorty (an 8 lb Morkie).
I have a hard time using color in my decor but I love color in other people’s houses. I just use textures to make my space more interesting. Like, when I go shopping I can’t pass up these soft faux fur blankets at Homegoods.
I just noticed that even my dog is a neutral color with texture! She is so soft and sweet. She loves to pose for pictures, too. 
Contrasting (non)-colors, furs, old wood, metals and woven baskets keep the space from feeling sterile. I love an all white pallet in cottage style homes but our house is not really “cottage”. I am hoping for lots of snow so we can feel like we are in a mountain resort…Wait – we are in the mountains.
My Dad let me bring home his vintage Pepsi crate. 🙂 My Mom let me bring home her beautiful round mirror that I placed front and center on the mantel. (perks of living by family – among many other things)
THX Mom and Dad!
That wraps up this post of my favorite room in the mountains.
More to come!
Thanks for stopping by to view our family room decked out in Neutrals and Textures.
Happy Monday!!!
