Creating a Mood in Your Den or Family Room

June 21, 2017


The design and function of the den, or family room, has come a long way since the days of the iconic 1970’s television show the Brady Bunch, where a few chairs and coffee table made up the entire design of the room. Today’s dens and family room are multipurpose and lush with design features that can showcase a homeowners personality and hobbies. Families use dens for movie nights, entertaining, sleepovers, an area to do homework and a cozy gathering place for loved ones. With all these functions it is no wonder homeowners are seeking out help with choosing the right color palette to be all those things rolled into one.

Things to consider when making this decision:


  • What mood do you want to set in the den or family room?
  • What is the main function of the room?
  • Are you looking for something electric or more cohesive?
  • Do you want to portray a theme like the beach, mountains, travel, or possibly a nature theme?
  • Are you looking for something sophisticated and elegant or something more comfortable and laid back?
