Interior Designer EDIT: Family-Friendly Living Room

By Carrie Cotton

Interior Designer Edit: Family-Friendly Living Room
 I selected a corner sofa in an on-trend yet classic colour (pro tip: make sure to get your sectional sofa covered in a performance fabric so spills clean up easily) 

True to my nature, I approach every design opportunity as a problem to solve. Even when creating a mood board from HONE’s large yet curated selection of home item, I had to assign myself a design dilemma: a family-friendly living space that functions just as well for family movie night as it does for entertaining friends. A home to feel proud of. Additionally, this space should be updated but not trendy.

With this in mind, I selected a corner sofa in an on-trend yet classic colour (pro tip: make sure to get your sectional sofa covered in a performance fabric so spills clean up easily). Two side chairs in a neutral zebra print add a bit of flair to the room while the print will hide any of those aforementioned spills! Round side and coffee tables will keep sharp edges out of the room... and the pre-distressed area rug will hide any muddy footsteps that come through (I know, I have one by my back door!). Brass touches add a bit of easy glamour to the room and a mix of styles give it a curated look unique to you and your home.
