family-1Today I thought we’d stick to the main area of the house where I’ll show you around the family room. I have an open floor plan which is great for entertaining. It’s a large open area so there’s plenty of room for folks to gather.

family room 3I tried to create a couple of comfy sitting areas where people could step away from the main space to relax or have a private conversation. As you can see my style has a relaxed feel throughout. I like to incorporate rustic elements with contemporary pieces. I guess it’s my version of rustic chic.


While an open concept is wonderful, it is a very large area. That made it difficult when it came to finding appropriate sized furniture. I had to fill the room with rugs and fabric to help with sound issues. To ensure that the space feels welcoming to guests, I incorporate a variety of Glade® scents and products throughout the space. So while the Glade® PlugIns® by the door greets my guest and freshens the whole space, I get the added boost of an additional warmer behind the bench on the other side of the room. Because the warmers have a dial, I can set the fragrance level as needed. I keep the one beside the door set to the maximum fragrance output while the once behind the bench is at the lowest value.


I have been known to do complementary fragrances but right now I am using the Glade® Blooming Peony & Cherry™ in all my rooms. I think the flow through the house spreads such an uplifting and rejuvenating feeling throughout my home. The weather outside is warming up, the grass is green and many of my flowers are starting to bloom, including my beautiful peony right outside my front door! The new Blooming Peony & Cherry™ brings that same feeling of spring into my home…it just makes me feel happy!
