Monday Mix // 36 // On Tuesday // Katie's Front Room - Furniture Arrangement Idea's

4:42 PM

Hello :)

This Monday Mix is a little different than others I create - it's actually two boards I made for a very sweet young mom of two girls.   She sent me some pictures of her front room, and these are just my idea's on furniture placement and pieces that might work for her.   She already has a really amazing architectural piece of barn wood on her wall by the front door which would be behind that gray chair. I just played off of that when I picked out furniture.  I like a neutral room that color can be added to so I ran with that look.  Pops of pink and green and some navy.  Furry ottomans for the girls to love.  Baskets for toys and blankets.  We weren't working on style - just placement - but I think it helps to see actual furniture ideas to use as a guide.  Both looks use almost identical pieces - just a couple different swap outs on the second board.

Starting at the front door there is a little wall space beside the door - I thought a little drop spot for visitors and the family would be nice.   I have a painting on the wall with wall hooks below it for keys and coats, and a storage ottoman below that.  You could also use a mirror in place of artwork.

This painting is called Mornings Away and can be found on Minted.
The Calleo hook and rail system can be found here.
I like that this storage ottoman is adorable and functional.  It comes in about 5 colors.  Find it here.

So if you are standing on the far side of the room looking to the front door there is the door - a little wall - a big front window - and a little more wall.  Continuing to the right of the hook and ottoman set up I thought using a floor lamp - sofa - and little side table would be nice.

Tacoma Linen Sofa - I've alway had light slipcovered sofa's with kids - they are really easy to throw in the wash with some oxi clean - they come out fresh and new.

Now imagine yourself turning right in this room.  You would be looking at a wall with a window centered on it.  My thought was to use either a cabinet with storage underneath it or something open like a pretty bookshelf underneath.  In this board I used the closed storage on this wall, and open storage on the next wall.  The next board has the opposite idea.  You could also use an electric fireplace.

Then I thought a nice chair beside that with another little table for your drink or book to rest upon.

On to the next wall - so imagine turning to your right again.  This wall is the one you see as you enter the house.  It has an opening - then a large piece of wall - and another opening.   On this wall I imagine using either a pretty open shelving type piece or a cabinet for storage with a mirror and art above it.  On this board I used the large open shelving unit with a pom pom basket catchall next to it.

Now I'm going to talk about right in front of the sofa - a big coffee table with a couple of ottomans that can be used for extra seating.

This coffee table is so nice with the rounded edges.  Growing up we had a large coffee table with wood on the bottom.  It was near our TV and I'd always rest my head on that bottom half of wood, and say a prayer that when my brother came flying into the room and jumped on top of the table it wouldn't come crashing in.  Lucky for me it was a sturdy beast!

Back to the front door - I found this gray chair - It would be placed so it is facing the far wall with the two windows.  On it I put a couple of pillows, and have more baskets resting beside it.  Oh, and a fun tassel throw.

Here is another option using open storage between the windows, and the closed chest of drawers on the other wall.
