Eva Amurri Martino of blog Happily Eva After's colorful and pattern-filled Family Room in her new connecticut home

Welcome to our new Connecticut home! I’m so excited to share the first of my Room Reveals with you on the blog today.  Our Family Room is one of my favorites in the entire house.  I just love how it turned out– if rooms could be Spirit Animals, this would be mine! Haha. Patterns and pops of color really energize me and make me feel so at home.  I also love it because it reminds me so much of our California home.  If you ever checked out my Home Tour from our last house, you’ll notice that most of the decor and furniture from our old Master Bedroom ended up in our new Family Room.  This space has been really restorative and cozy for our growing family, and I can’t wait to hang out in here together for years to come! These images are meant to be scrolled through, so enjoy– credits and a “Shop The Look” feature can be found at the end of the post!

    Would love to hear about the wall with your TV – TV walls are hard to do and looking at yours, I’m wondering if I should get rid of the console below my TV and just have it be a wall with only the TV (and get rid of other art around it)

    • Hi!
      So we didn’t want the kids to be able to touch/mess with the TV and decided to do our entire home wireless and mount it on the wall. It’s been amazing so far!

  5. This is so you! I must ask about the toy storage situation. I had noticed it on snapchat and have been so curious about it. Will there be a post on what you did with those bins? Are they built ins, custom units, something you dreamed up yourself? I am so curious. Looking forward to more reveals, especially the kitchen and bedrooms. xx

    09.26.16 Reply
    • Hi! Yes, they are custom. If you look in the design credits below you can see the Land Of Nod bins they are inspired by!

    Gorgeous! Love how open and airy it is – and the built in storage for toys is genius!

    Ooooooh! I’m so in love with the island(?) with the toy bins on the side. That is such a brilliant idea. I bet Marlowe loves having her stuff accessible, but it’s still easy to put it away. How did you get your TV on the wall with no wires at all? It looks great. Nice work!

    09.26.16 Reply
    • Thanks, yes she loves it!
      We actually had a company come and make everything wireless for us which has been a game changer!

    How do you keep all the light furniture clean with a toddler? I am loving all the colors in this room.

    09.26.16 Reply
    • Hi Stephanie! haha yes I know the light furniture is pretty brave.
      My decorating mantra is always that kids must exist within our own aesthetic and not the other way around– If the couch gets a few stains or bumps and bruises I’m cool with it! It is what it is.

      We’ll see how long it takes to get destroyed haha

    Such a smart idea to have the toys and storage right where they are. Our kids have a huge play room but they want to play close to mom, in the kitchen. I’ve given up and have bought some antique boxes to hide them in.

    09.26.16 Reply
    • Same thing happened to us in our last home– amazing play room that was never ever used because it was away from where we actually spent time!

    I have so been looking forward to this post! I LOVED how you styled your home in Los Angeles and your new home is just as stunning! I truly can’t wait to see more room reveals especially Marlowe’s and Baby Boy Martino’s room! Congratulations on your new home it truly is just as lovely as can be.

    What is with all of the paintings of naked people!?!?!?!?

    09.26.16 Reply
    • Hi Emily,
      We have a few nudes in our home (one painting and two photographs). We collect black and white photography and a couple are nudes. We find them to be really beautiful

  19. I LOVE this. This would probably be my spirit animal too. I’ve never been this brave to mix so many colors and patterns, but this turned out beautifully its great inspiration.

  21. Your home is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! I just have to know how do you have SO MUCH white with a toddler?? I am SO drawn to the white, airy look and I worry when I have kids I will have to sacrifice that!!! But you seem to do just fine with it!! 🙂 Your home and family is gorgeous!

    I love the look of the room with all the splashes of color. Beautiful. I have loved the idea of a white room, but one question… Is it just because it’s a picture or does all the woodwork and everything else white just blend in with the walls? I’m wondering if it’s too white. Ideas for my next DIY…

    Ohhhhhhhh I think this might be my fav of all your rooms. I had a sectional very similar to that one before a (forced ?) downsize. So comfy & inviting! And, I love grey! It’s a super great neutral. Also, in love with your upholstered ottoman/coffee table. Such a warm, friendly space!

    Fantastic job on the renovation. Absolutely love the floors, is it white oak? Would love to do this in my place, do you know the stain color? Any help would be most appreciated, again great job.
