Home Tour: Family Room

The Family Room is where we spend most of our time at home. Our computers are here, some of Caleb's toys are here (tucked under the breakfast can't see them in these pics), the laundry gets folded here, the mail gets read here. Everything happens here! Which means it usually looks like a hurricane just blew through! But we still really enjoy it.

 When we moved into this house, we decided to leave our TV behind and instead use my computer for all our media needs. We signed up for Netflix for movies, and watch TV shows on It helps us be a little pickier about what we watch and caters TV to our schedule, instead of the other way around. It's worked out really well for us! And it explains why the couch is facing the computers.

And I want everyone to notice the beautiful desk that Jon made for us when we moved here. It suits our needs perfectly and I love it!


  1. That looks great! And I can't say I've ever seen it look, ehem, like that when we chat! ;)

  2. I love the mission-style desk Jon did, what a handy man! This room has such a "homey" feel to it. I love your breakfast bar, you need to do a buffet style gathering sometime. The love seat is the perfect size for a movie for two, or three, or soon four! :)

  3. It looks great! What yummy looking cookies on your bar! I can't tell what the middle of your desk looks like; you should take a shot facing it without chairs so we can really see Jon's handiwork.

  4. You can't look too closely at the desk!
