Family Room Plans

Hi friends,

It's been another busy day here at Casa Marshall. And you know what that means. A short post!

Today, I am sharing one of the options I am considering for our new family room.

This is what it looks like with the previous owner's furniture:



And here is an idea board based on our existing furniture:.

Decor ideas: Family Room


I need to use our navy sofa from the basement in this room for the time being so I am looking to find stylish, inexpensive, family friendly options to go with it. Any suggestions?

I'll share some more options over the coming days as I am not totally sold on this one. The rug is the hardest part. Finding one in my price range that fits with the navy sofa is the challenge.

I leave you today with this inspirational thought:

Spring Decorating Do's and Don'ts

Hi friends,

Yes - it is still very cold outside and we are probably getting another ice age. But I need to start thinking happy sunny thoughts so today's post is all about Spring decorating. To not take ourselves too seriously, and have a little fun along the way, I've done the post using do's and don'ts. Of course, these are only according to me. Feel free to let me know how it really is :)

First up, when it comes to freshening up for Spring don't go overboard with the bunny decor like this:
Okay this is kinda cute but still - one or two bunnies max please!

DO decorate with spring flowers and whimsical items

DON"T keep your Christmas mantel decorations all year round (seriously people!)

DO brighten your mantel with a few spring items




DON"T keep your walls bare or covered in old, dark artwork like this (Scary!)

DO add fresh spring art to your walls


DON"T paint rooms dark wintry colors like this:

DO update your paint colors with lively spring hues

Or try the chic new mauve and lilac paint colors that are popping up everywhere:

Dream Coastal Retreat

Hi friends,

Hope you all had an amazing weekend. We visited with friends, did more packing and binge watched the rest of House of Cards. A pretty great weekend if you ask me.

Today, I am sharing an idea board for my dream coastal retreat. If there is any decorating theme I love, it's coastal. The colors, the relaxing vibe, I just love this style.

Backyard here i come

Hi friends,

It's raining and lightning outside as I write this and I just hope we don't have another quick freeze again. I am so done with winter! In thinking warm thoughts, I am sharing pics of our new backyard deck. I can't wait till we move in and the weather gets nice. Our current house has almost no backyard so it will be a nice treat. Fingers crossed that pretty spring flowers pop up at the new place. I hope the people buying our place enjoy the daffodils and tulips I've planted over the years.

As I've said about the other pics, these were taken with a very wide angle lens so the yard isn't as big as it appears. Wish it was though ;)



Too bad this table doesn't come with the place. Maybe they'll forget to move it?


And what's that peeking through the fence?

A pool! It's a dream come true for this former life guard. I've never had one before so I hope it doesn't come with too many hassles. Keep the dream alive! Who wants to come over for a pool party?
