Changes in the Family Room

We are in the process of updating our little house. My husband lets me do the decor, since he does not really care that much except he won’t let me do anything too “crazy.” I had a plan in Olioboard about how I wanted it to be but my taste changed. Since we moved into our house we have been changing, and that is because we were really young and really did not know what we liked. Now we (or better said, I) know. My style is definitely “french coastal cottage,” but I also like some modern touches here and there. I do not like everything white and I like neutral colors, inspired by the beach that I so love! First it looked like this:

And now it is more like this:

This defines my style even more. I already have all the pieces of furniture, I have to repaint some of them and get some of the accents (Goodwill, here I come!) The walls will be one of my absolutely favorite: Benjamin Moore Silver Satin

Silver Satin / BM OC-26
I am thinking on doing an accent wall where the T.V is going to be, some sort of board and batten treatment. I still do not know if I want it all the way to the ceiling or not..we’ll see. I still have a lot of leftover MDF and wood from previous projects I could use them in here. For now, I am thinking something like this:
Our family room is nicely sized and it also has another wall where the piano goes and there is a bookcase there. For now it will stay like that. We already updated our floor. If you want to see the before ugliness to the after you can see it HERE.
