Life with kids! Sofa/Credenza update

Well, I've discovered that this is NOT easy to do.  In fact, I had to do a shopping trip to add items to my room.  Originally, I photographed certain rooms in my house, but when I watched the sofa/credenza video, I realized that a different room would be quicker to accomplish. 

Love to hear feedback on these.  I think I have the 8 elements, but the feel seems more formal and less eclectic than many of the other posts.

I think this room will evolve over time.  Now, photos of the next room in progress!  Would love suggestions!

MY ORIGINAL POST:

Life with kids keeps my house from being what I want it to be.  So, I want to work on almost every room, but I picked the ones that will have the most impact.  Here they are!  Can you tell that I took the pictures before I watched the first video?  I guess things will get better as I go along!

A photo that I've loved forever!  It has the 8 Principles.  

Needs:

lots of seating and conversation 

Placement:

the sofas and chair are placed to faciliate conversation

Pattern:

the pattern in the wallpaper (or paint) and on the floor is simple, but dramatic

Shape:

very linear balanced by objects in the cases and the oval frames in the mirror's reflection

Texture:

softness in the sofa and fringe on the pillows balance the hard lines of the rest of the room

Color:

a range of neutrals with one bright red and one small bright blue accent

Botanicals:

right in the middle to soften up the look

Bling:

mirror frame, coffee table and the chair provide great balance and pop to the neutrals

Now, onto my reality.......

The family room - we are here all the time!  Its our tv space and play area.

The living room - soon it will not be a place where we store hockey equipment!

Or the rest of our junk!

The bathroom needs help too!

So does the bedroom.

The foyer - not much space to make an impact!

So, I have a week off of work and I am ready to begin my projects!
