Get The Look: Our Family Room Lounge

Mid-century living room furniture ideas

Late last year I started the process of putting together roundups that would help you guys get the look of each room in our home. I wanted to do this because I get asked fairly regularly on Instagram where to buy certain items, and I hate having to respond with a quick, “I’m so sorry! It’s vintage!”

So, the idea of putting together these roundups is for those of you who don’t have the time or budget to spend at antique stores on authentic mid-century furniture. We actually have a mix of “real” and “reproduction” pieces in our own home, but these linked lists are an easier way for you to skip the process of curating over time so you can get the look right away.

Today, it’s all about our lower level family room lounge. You can take the full tour of this room (as well as the rest of our home!) over here, but essentially our family room is built around ultra low furnishings that help welcome a good long lounge. We want people to come into the room and basically just flop anywhere they want to!

You can get the same vibes by shopping any of the pieces I’ve pulled together below from AllModern, which is one of my favorite places online to look for mid-century accents that don’t cost an arm and a leg (but are still well-made). We have a bunch of AllModern pieces throughout our house, and I’m happy to report that they hold up well to our family—possibly even better than our expensive 1960s antiques!

Click the links below to get the look of our family room lounge, and let me know in the comments which of the rooms in our house you’d like to see rounded up next. If you missed the first post in this series (my mid-century-inspired home office!) click back here for that.

Weekend Inspiration: No.83

As you might be able to tell from the photos in today’s post, I’ve got a brand new DGD Pottery shop collection to share! But before I get to all that, I just wanted to ask…How’s 2020 going for you so far? Are you getting a lot done, or have you found it difficult to muster motivation this first month of the new year?

I’m somewhere in the middle, but am excited to ramp things up as the weeks go by. I’ve got a lot of projects I’m anxious to tackle, so I think maybe this weekend I’ll start by making a list for myself. I tend to keep myself on track better when I have a tangible list of goals to look through and cross off, so that’s my next plan of action.

In the meantime, keep scrolling to find out what else has been on my mind this past week, including a few cool projects, healthy habits, and new discoveries that have made 2020 feel extra fresh and new.

Weekend Inspiration: No.83

1. Hop over to the DGD Pottery Etsy shop this morning to see the new collection that just dropped. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever released before…More details this way!

2. Have you guys seen the HGTV show “Fixer to Fabulous”? John and I just started watching it on Hulu, and love it. The designs aren’t always my particular décor style, but I still come away from each episode with fun new ideas.

3. I’m still going strong with “no spend” January and my #30DayThriftedFashion challenge. That said, I’m pining hard for these sustainably made flats from Everlane. Treat yourselves to a pair so I can live vicariously through you!

4. Our local stores have already started putting out spring décor and clothing—have yours? While I still feel like it’s way too soon, it’s also making me really excited for the next season to come. Here’s a roundup of spring-like desktop backgrounds that you can use to perk up your computer while we wait for spring to officially arrive. I’m using “LEEMO 1” on my computer now!

5. In case you missed Cassie’s fireplace makeover, do yourself a favor and check out her highlight reel on Instagram right this minute. The before/after is insanely good.

6. John and I just started doing Pure Barre on demand this month, and are thinking about turning part of our unfinished basement into an at-home workout zone. Would you like to see the transformation, or would you prefer I keep content here on the blog to more “pretty” décor updates? I’m totally open to your thoughts, so leave them in the comments below!
