This week we’re really focusing on putting the family room back together and every step feels monumental. The space, which is above our garage and just up the back staircase from the kitchen, and at the end of the hall from the girls’ bedrooms, has become the central location for our family to be together and watch TV and hang out.
So over the last few months since we’ve been renovating, it’s been a challenge to not have a place to hang and relax, but also exciting that we’re doing this now so we can enjoy the space forever! We shared the hidden door Chris made yesterday (with a peek at the blue paint job–Farrow and Ball Stiffkey Blue), and I have been loading in furnishings while Chris hung the TV and even went the extra mile and set up the VR. The first time we’ve enjoyed the bonus room in months! When I was sharing live about setting the space up, I got so many questions about the art we used on our Frame TV, and I figured it’s about time we do a tutorial here on the blog!
Art is the best part of the Frame TV!–You can choose what art is displayed on it, and change the tone and lighting to make it look really real. The Frame has some built-in art options, but you can actually upload any digital art, with the correct resolution, to your TV which opens up a lot of options.
Sharing a few of my current favorites below!
We have shared this a few times on Instagram, so if you are more of a visual learner, definitely reference this reel we made for a quick rundown, and checkout this story highlight for something more in depth. The steps below will walk you through the process step by step!

Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
