When we hear "family friendly", visions of rooms filled with foam floor mats, piles of plastic toys, and inexpensive furniture may come to mind. At some point in the past few decades, and with the sprawl of suburban homes boasting "bonus" rooms and basements, a line was drawn between what was considered "family friendly" and which rooms or styles were off-limits. Now, with many people opting for smaller homes in urban areas, most rooms have to pull double-duty, being both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
This home of textile designer Caitlin Wilson is the perfect blend of pretty and practical. Unique, high-style pieces are scattered throughout the house, but clutter is kept to a minimum- which also makes cleaning up easier. Even the designated "play area" is simply styled and cohesive, instead of being a black eye in the otherwise carefully curated space. By paying close attention to the details in each room, the overall look is cohesive and comfortable. Whether you have little humans or a small zoo of four-legged critters, like us, this house is a super inspiring example of what a "family" home could be.
