Well, I keep shopping my home to put together vignettes for my family room. This is an area of decorating that I struggle. I can do major makeovers of furniture, walls or arranging furniture but I have a very hard time arranging accessories to complete a vignette. So I scour all of your blogs to get inspiration and then try to replicate using what I have.
The top of our entertainment armoire is a hard area because we have two story walls. Eventually I want to purchase a large old world round clock to hang on the wall above this armoire to give it the height it is missing. But, doing the best I can, I put this together using what I have. You will notice a wildlife theme as Mr. Creative is a big hunter and fisherman. As a family, we love nature. I try to make the wildlife work around the room.

Over to the right of the armoire, I have placed one of the old chairs that I STILL have to reupholster (I am in process on the matching chair). I tried to put together a corner that works with those treasured fish of Mr. Creative! The table was $15 on Craigslist that I painted and glazed. There is also a lamp that I transformed from silver to bronze. I will do a post on the lamp and table later! I added a ginger jar, some books and a thrift store $1 bowl that I painted, too!
Here you can see more of the area together. You can see the open spot to the left of the armoire that is awaiting that reupholstered chair!!
I know this look isn't for everyone, but I try to incorporate "the men" of the family into my design. Being the only female in a male world, I am also trying not to lose me!! Anyway, this is a racoon hide that my father in law gave me, a very large deer shed antler that our dog found in the woods on our property and a very old walnut bowl that belonged to my parents. I just filled it with some pine cones.
This is our computer armoire. I'm not thrilled with the accessories here but I am about out of options when shopping the house. I may have to purchase a few things!!
The back wall is wallpaper that I hung under the loft to give it a little shine and dimension.
The doors on the computer cabinet are RARELY ever closed!! This is the chair we use for the computer. I hung our family portrait here. I had it on the wall next to the TV armoire but it just looked lonely! I really like it here as you see it as soon as you come in the family room from the foyer.
Another area that I'm not thrilled about is the top of my dresser that I use as a sofa table. I need different accessories as these just aren't cutting it!

Last but not least is the fireplace wall that I have showed you previously. This is reality blogging so the mess on the hearth is the norm. We use this wood burning stove to heat our house so there is always wood droppings everywhere!!
