Inspiration For My Family Room and Dining Room, the over all look

I have been pinning rooms on Pinterest for a few weeks now.  Today I want to show you some of the rooms that have inspired me.  Most of these rooms are just have an over all look and feel I like and not the exact look I am going for.  I love a collected over time look verses the latest trend.  I think this look appeals to my sentimental side because it allows most things in the room to have meaning and not just be a purchase.  Now don't get me wrong I love looking at a perfectly styled room but it will not work for us, I have hand me downs from too many era's that have to stay.

Each of these first rooms make my heart sing, if I could move into any one of them I would.  But I have to be real and know that my family is far too hard on furniture to pick some of these pieces and we need to be able pile up and cuddle on ours.  Also did you notice the broad range of colors these rooms have?  I love color and need to be able to include it. 

This room by the fabulously talented Tori Spelling (who would have guessed she had skills like this when she was on 90210) has more family friendly style and I love all the color but......the white will NOT work for us.
I will admit it, WE ARE MESSY.

                   The large Asian pictures behind this sofa reminds me of mine, I like that it is the only Asian thing in the room.

           Then I found this design board from Fieldstone Design and it is so close to what I am going for I almost could not believe it.  When I found it we had already purchased our tan sectional sofa and had the same fabric that is on the cube for drapes and pillows.

Even the layout for the room is similar to mine

                    I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak at the feel I am going for in my family room and dinning room.  And if you would like an invite to Pinterest so you can start your own pins just send me an email ( ) and I will invite you.

I'm with you, Cha Cha. The perfect room to me is one that has evolved over time. Great inspiration pics!

Funny, I thought that board from Fieldstone WAS your stuff! I am working my way up to getting on the Pinterest train. It's one more thing though. Hard to decide. Lisa~
