Home Tour: The Family Fort!

Oct 19, 2015 | Home + Studio Tours

I can’t believe I’m still doing room tours when we moved in to our new home over a year ago. I’ve learned it takes that much time to get settled!
Today I’m sharing a tour of the room we call our “Family Fort” – it’s big room on the second level of our home where we watch movies, play games, rough house, and more. Sometimes we call it the Tree Fort because the windows look out onto two huge trees. We had some help visioning and styling this room from our friends over at the Boys Fort – one of our favorite shoppes in Portland. We LOVE this room!

Take a look:

The Eames Chair is a reproduction that we had reupholstered in Pendleton fabric. LOVE! Also loving the vaulted ceilings in this room. John had a great idea to place one of our old ladders we had hanging around in our old garage above the windows. We ran with it and then he strung some lights on it, too. Love, love, love.
And our globe collection above the ladders sings.

The big yellow pouf came from Schoolhouse Electric – another fave Portland spot. True loves jumping, singing, and sliding off of it. It’s hard to see here, but to the right of the couch is a corner filled with large plants. We put a ton of plants in this room, which makes me wildly happy and goes along with our treehouse feel.

We piled the couch up with pillows as I don’t think you can ever have too many!

We’ve had this map forever and I’m so glad it finally found a good place to hang. The sconces are from Restoration Hardware.

I created some hanging terrariums with some soil, rocks, and air plants and hung them from the ladder. LOVE! And the metallic deer is from Home Goods.

The wallpaper!!!! We chose to accent the TV wall with this iconic wallpaper to keep the tree house fort feel and I’m so happy with it. The TV stand is made by a papa/son duo here in Portland. The giant stag above the TV is also from Restoration Hardware.

My dad made us this awesome light stand and presented it to us on Christmas morning. How amazing and cool is this? An heirloom….

My dad also made this storage piece. We used it as a room divider in our old house (in the basement). I love it in this space. It holds games, videos, and more.
Loving that sweet pic of John and our sweet Bella doggie.
Since these photos were taken, we changed a few things. Mainly we added a rug (Pottery Barn) and layered it with the blue-grey shag rug:
We love the layered rug look!
Thanks, friends!

    Hi – Would you be able to tell me the paint color/brand that you have in the room called Family Fort? Like the value of that gray.

    Is it Revere Pewter?
