Family Room decor needs help

February 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Large family room, L17*W15*H13. Wall paper on one wall. We are confused with what kind of pictures will go with this wall paper, what kind of rug, other accents to give the room a modern look.

The wallpaper is fun and you need to repeat the colors in your rug and pillows. I think a solid rug in one of the flower colors would be easy on the eyes and let the wallpaper continue to take center stage. The lacy tablecloth is not working but I like the chair fabric. The two accent chairs are nice but too small with your wallpaper pattern, large sofas and even the FP. unless they are child size. Can you use them a bedroom or foyer with a small table between" To go really modern replace the fan/light and the fixture over the dining table with with cool drums,pendants or both.

For a rug, I would go a solid color since there is already lots of pattern in your fun room!

I agree with most of the comments by decoenthusiaste ---however Iwill add a few additional comments. paint the white fireplace one of the wallpaper colors, maybe the blue and try to get a solid tablecloth of a simmilar color.

Thanks decoenthusiaste, citapore and pyramid for your suggestions. We have the blue sofa cushions forgot to place them on the sofa while taking pictures. I will update the picture again.
We were thinking of the rug of one of the wallpaper colors but thought it woud be too much of color. And pictures on wall, should they be abstract or something like Monet paintings? What could be placed next to the fireplace if the chairs are taken out. Thanks in advance for all valuable suggestions.

The tablecloth has to go. Keep the natural wood table with fun placemats, and a natural centerpiece of some sort, (sticks, stones, foliage, plant) and a funky light as suggested. The chairs by the fireplace are making the room look cluttered. sofa could use some pillows to tie in the room colors. The tv soes not work over this fireplace. If the area above the mantle was painted a complimentary neutral or a white that extended to the ceiling, the TV may look more attractive. Another idea is to lose one of the couches and put the tv on the wall to the left. Make a natural piece of art the focal point above the fireplace, or try a great mirror with a distressed frame.

The mantel has too many little itty bitty pix on it. I would move them. I don't mind the TV above the fireplace because of the utility and understand the need to see it for all around. The tablecloth doesn't match. Start by taking it off and removing the little items from the mantel. Also the chair pattern in front of the fireplace seems to clash with your floral paper.

please take the plastic off the dining room chairs. Everything is great individuallly but they do not coordinate. I love the chairs by the fireplace but they clash with the wallpaperand are out of scale.
