Good morning! Last week I posted our new casual and cottage designed Family room and I guess I dropped the ball a bit on providing a resource list. I had no idea the response this post would receive and after the 100th email (literally) about “where did you buy that?” it dawned on me….I should have added that in the post! For some of you 100 emails isn’t a lot but for this little O’l blog, it blew up my gmail account. Thank you so much for all the sweet comments!

    I'm not one bit surprised that you got 100 emails from this (and that seems like a lot to me too). It's such an amazing transformation. Great job!

    Love the transformation! It looks amazing!

    I saw your makeover post on my iphone but was unable to comment at the time. Your living room is absolutely stunning. I adore all its features from your slip-covered sectional to your use of yellow that really adds a pleasant pop of surprise and color. This is perfection and I am keeping it for inspiration for our living room make over!

    PS I wish you a speedy recovery and good health! 🙂

  10. Jessica, I am sorry if I missed where you may have already mentioned it, but what color of blue is on the walls? I fell in love with it when I first read about your family room makeover (I found your blog either through Young House Love or Southern Hospitality…can’t remember which – sorry!) a few months ago. I also just saw the ABC coverage post…. very cool. 🙂

  11. I love LOVE LOVE your blue rug. I’ve been planning to get that one for our dining room for a while now. Does it look as beautiful in real life? Is it holding up well for you?

    It’s especially beautiful with the yellow accents!

    1. Hi, thank you so much 🙂 Yes, the rug is beautiful in real life. I won’t lie, it does shed a bit though but only in the middle part where it meets the long part of the couch (where your feet will rest when sitting on the couch) I have no idea why. It doesn’t bother me b/c I vacuum daily (kids and dogs) so it’s no big deal for me. Otherwise, the quality and color is fabulous 🙂

  12. Hi Jessica, Hope you are on the mend. Thanks so much for posting this, it is spectacular. I would like to know if you could tell me where you got the console table behind your couch, the one with the lamp on it. I have been looking for a table like this and I think it really pretty. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jessica,
      I love what you accomplished with your room. I’m curious who makes your white slipcovered sofa?

      1. woops! didn’t see the link above.

  13. I found your family room makeover on Pinterest and I’ve been showering your blog to find the name/information about the wall color! I see that you messages another reader– Would you be willing to share? I’m going to buy a sample of whatever it is tomorrow!

    1. Hi Janelle! So sorry about that, I thought the paint color was on the post and I can’t seem to find it either! The paint on the lower wall (planks) is White Dove by Benjamin Moore and the top of the wall is Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore. I used a satin finish for planks (white dove) as I didn’t want the lower wall to shiny but not dull so satin was the winner :).

  14. Hi!

    I saw your room makeover on Pinterest. You did a beautiful job! Where did you find the pillows on your lovely sofa?

    Thanks for sharing your amazing work 🙂

  15. Hi Jessica,


    Hi Jessica,

    I love the sectional you have in your family room. I know you got it at Jordan’s but I was wondering if you could tell me what name brand it is. That store is so huge it’s hard to find everything so it would be awesome to have a name to give to the store associates. I recently just bought a converted general store in Newport and I’m redoing it. I think your sectional would be fantastic cause its got those nice fluffy back cushions AND a chaise. LOVE it!

    Bethany (from Foxboro too… so if you want to go shopping at the Wrentham Outlets again, let me know 😉 😉

    1. Hey there! I don’t know the brand (just looked) but it’s with all the slipcovered cottage style furniture. I just saw it there a couple weeks ago and the way back towards the outlet/clearance area 🙂

  16. Lindsay Zylstra says:

    I was wondering if you have a tutorial on how you hung the wood planks on the wall in your family room? I want to do something similar but not quite sure how to go about it.


  17. In love with your makeover! Do you happen to know the brand of your couch? I checked out the link that you shared to a similar one but it doesn’t have the chaise that yours does, and we’re in search of one with exactly the same layout as yours. Your couch would be perfect for us!!!

    1. Hi, ours was purchased at a local retailer in Mass and the tag with the brand name is gone but I did find this one from Wayfair (their Allmodern brand) and it’s got great ratings , here is my affiliate link 🙂 http://bit.ly/2z0ORpz
