Jacki Roig



By Meg Escott

When I’m thinking about laundry room design I use the same type of thinking as I do for kitchen design.  Like the kitchen, the laundry is a highly functioning space (I guess that’s why it’s often called a utility room in England).  Of course we want it to look good (even beautiful) but if you can’t do the activities that make up ‘doing the laundry’ smoothly and easily, the room will be a misery (a futility room – that’s what my brother in law used to call it as a toddler!).


Seeing as the laundry is also a space that exists to get a job done it surprises me that laundry room design doesn’t receive more attention.  There’s so much written about how kitchens function, the kitchen triangle and all that.  Mmm – the laundry triangle.  I’ll have to come back to that one

Design Plan: Our New Family Room

Jacki Roig

Excuse the brevity of this post but I really want to share the design plan for our new family room because it features The Everygirl’s furniture collection with Interior Define and those pieces are currently 15% off – ending today!

Here it is! The design plan for our new family room. We’re going to live right by family and friends and this room opens up to the kitchen. It will be where we spend the most time and entertain, so the goal is to maximize seating and coziness for frequent hangouts.

I’d really love a full corner sectional as opposed to a chaise sectional simply to have more seating, but we’re not sure yet if it will fit so we are waiting to get in and measure. But I plan on doing a sectional version of the Caitlin sofa in Oatmeal Heathered Weave fabric which actually looks a bit lighter

A lot of people use the terms ‘family room’ and ‘living room’ interchangeably. Although similar in context, the two have served different functions historically. A living room is more like a formal space for your guests in contrast to a family room which is a rather informal, relaxed area where people spend time with their families, watch TV or play games. Depending on specific preferences, it may or may not include child-friendly furniture and/or a workstation.

Scandinavian-Style Living Room Design Inspiration

Jacki Roig

At the first sign of cooler weather, our homes enter their own form of hibernation. Out comes the chunky knit throw and the candles. We surround ourselves with more lighting and greenery to make up for the dwindling daylight hours and barren trees outside our window. We also, naturally, retreat to one of the coziest places in the home: the living room.

When looking for pointers on how to cozy up a space, look no further than Scandinavia⁠—the area of the globe comprised of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The tenants of Scandinavian design are largely intuitive. Scandinavians create bright, airy spaces to counteract the long, dark days of winter. All-white everything is common, but their palette also includes tan, gray, and black (Occasionally, you’ll see pops of blue, pink, or green in the form of accents).
