Above our garage and at the very rear of our house in Corona Del Mar we have this great family room space. It actually was an apartment at one point, so it has a separate entrance with a door bell.
The ceilings are really high so I added this huge double fan from a company called Fanimation. They make wonderful fans with natural palm blades in a variety of finishes. This model is about 5 feet wide and drops from the ceiling another 5 feet so you need some space if you choose this one.
The ceilings are also sloped with interesting angles. The poor guy who installed this fan was really challenged. I think it took about 4 hours to put up.
I put a small desk here from West Elm, with big chunky lamps and Orkney chairs
I had the lampshades made with vintage french grain sacks.
The window coverings are really simple white twill and I added a bamboo valance to play off of the natural palm fan blades and the woven grass backs of the chairs.
The green armoire to the right is a reconfigured antique that houses a refrigerator and a microwave....In case we need some popcorn and a soda!
The two white couches were designed specifically for this space because of the odd shape of the room. I used white denim and vintage feed sacks for the upholstery. I just recently found the rug on Ebay. It was from Williams Sonoma Home about a year ago and retailed for over $1000 dollars but I got it for $300!!! And its NEW!
More fun signs!
The green wicker table is vintage and I cut the legs down just a bit, so it works as a coffee table.
The column came home with me from the Rose Bowl flea market one weekend and now is the perch for our pet seagull Harry
We really enjoy this family room and it makes a great spot for kids and friends.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
