My Favorite Room: Stacy of Red Door Home

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


 I am enjoying this series and am grateful to have so many talented blogging friends who are willing to share their favorite rooms with us.  From the comments, it sounds like you all are enjoying this series too.  I hope you like the range in styles too because no two are the same.  Thanks for reading!

Today we have Stacy from Red Door Home here to share her family room.  Welcome Stacy!

When Rene asked me to guest post about my favorite space I was beyond thrilled!  I have been a Cottage and Vine follower for quite some time and I am truly honored to be included with so many fabulous bloggers Rene has featured on this series.



I am Stacy from Red Door Home – a stay at home mom who loves budget decorating, refurbishing vintage and thrift store finds, sewing, and DIY projects.  When I first started thinking about my favorite space in my home I immediately choose the family room.




First and most importantly, it is the space where my family spends most of our together time.  We all lead such busy lives it is nice to know there is a place we can all be together.



The family room also exemplifies my decorating style perfectly.  I love spaces which incorporate a mix of various price points, old and new furnishings, found and created objects, and vintage and modern fabrics.


Lastly, I love this space because it is finally finished!  We have lived in our house for almost 10 years and just last month had the built-in cabinets next to the fireplace installed.








They complete the vision my husband and I had for this space when the house was built and they hold some of my favorite treasures.





I hope you enjoyed the tour of my family room. Thank you Rene for having me!

  1. Rene, Stacy's family room is BEAUTIFUL I love the two chairs she has near her fireplace and all the vintage pieces she incorporated into the room. Especially that wooden wagon near the windows. Thanks for sharing, Martina

  11. What a lovely room! So put together and finished looking but not complicated. I'm not any kind of professional, but I think I could actually pull off something like this in my own home... like the layout and accessories and stuff. I love seeing rooms that are actually doable!
