By Sally Flynn of St. Charles

This is our new house we purchased in our price range. It needs a lot of updating but we are happy to say it is ours.

It would be awesome if we could get some expert help. As new homeowners, we will not have enough money to do this on our own.

Design by Steinhafels

Budget: $6,000

This family room is a blank slate. It has a dated sofa and blank white walls, yet there's plenty of space for endless designs!

Suggestions:

• This room would warm up with a nice taupe/gray wall color.

• Add wall art to create interest and bring personality to the space.

• A family room needs conversational seating. This should be a room for gathering and entertaining. Use comfortable yet stylish furniture to create a room that everyone wants to enjoy.
