Lake House Basement Family Room
Popping in with a little lake house basement family room update today! If you’ve been following along for a while, you know we have new furniture upstairs. So, everything upstairs came downstairs in a little round of musical chairs.
Just like musical chairs, there were a few that didn’t make the cut. Specifically, the beloved white armchairs from my mom that I have had several hundred requests for the source (she had them made years ago at a local shop so sorry I can’t help you out.) They just weren’t working out in this space. They were way too formal, and not practical for my kids to use every day.
I moved one into our master bedroom, and the other went to my brother’s house for his daughter’s room. So, they are getting yet another new lease on life.
The hunt began for something to replace the chairs! I was looking for a less formal, comfy oversized chair that would be great for movie nights or curling up with a good book.
Sixpenny Home asked to partner with me to share their furniture. I was so excited because the Neva chair was exactly what I had been looking for.
Oversized. Super comfy. And slipcovered in case we have any mishaps. Although the fabric I chose is dry clean recommended, it’s nice to know that’s an option for any major stains.
This chair is available in a ton of fabric options, but I wanted a little darker tone to camouflage dirt. I went with the Lightweight Linen option in the color Ink Cap. I love the casual vibe of the linen, and the color is a nice contrast to the new carpet.
It’so comfy my kids are trying to convince me we need to buy the matching couch! If I have to break up one more fight over who’s turn it is to sit in the chair, I might just do that! ;)
Whoever does finally claim the coveted throne as their own will have to share with Charlie. He has officially claimed it as his designated napping spot, but he will begrudgingly share…provided you rub his tummy.
You can check out all the great furniture at Sixpenny here. They have a lot of beautiful options to choose from. The ordering process was simple, delivery was fast, and the white glove service was an added bonus.
Things are still a work in progress down here. I still need some side tables, a lamp, and a few more accessories before I complete the space. I’m also thinking of going with a coffee table rather than an ottoman. I thought an ottoman would be practical for the kids. However they keep spilling snacks on it all the time, so I’m thinking a hard surface coffee table may be the way to go. I love how cozy it is down here with the new chair, and it’s been a great rainy day hangout space for our family!

Love, love, love this room! Would you have the make and color of the inset carpet? It looks like the perfect light neutral. Thanks so much!
Hi Laurie, I cannot find the paperwork for this carpet anywhere, so sorry!
Where can I get a cute pooch like that?
Love the look – very unpretentious and comfortable
Haha thanks :)
What brand paint is your color Agreeable gray in your fanmily room?
Are you able to share where this rug is from?
Yes it’s from Wayfair here’s the link https://rstyle.me/n/dk5ed2b6kv7
Would you mind sharing this room wall and trim color? I just found your blog and I love it!
The walls are Agreeable Gray and the trim is extra white by sherwin williams – thanks!
Love your style! Could you please share the rug source? Thanks!
Yes here is link to the rug https://rstyle.me/n/dk5ed2b6kv7 thanks!
Love the area rug! Can you share the source?
Yes here is the link thanks https://rstyle.me/n/dk5ed2b6kv7
Beautiful ..if there is room…I sure would be good for my own chair like that..?
It’s so comfy!
I’d like to curl up in that chair!! Looks very comfy. Question – does your area rug “walk”, being on top of the jute carpet like it is?
It doesn’t move around too much because of the furniture holding it down.
Love, love, love that chair!!!! It all looks so inviting!!
Loving this chair. It seems to be blue, but the sample on the web site looks more gray. Which is it? You did a great job.
It’s definitely a blueish gray more on the gray side though. You can order fabric samples to get a better feel!
Looks amazing! Do you mind sharing where your pillows are from?
I will be sharing soon but mostly Target and HomeGoods
I love this chair !!! I will definitely be purchasing a six penny chair !! Did you go with the down or poly fill ?? Btw, love your style?
I believe this is the down – thanks!
Before I saw the picture of your daughter reading in the chair – I told myself that is exactly where I would land each time – dog and all!! Great job – looks amazing!
Yes such a cozy spot for a book on a rainy day!
Simply beautiful as always. Would you be able to share your wall paint color? Also do you have a resource for me the larger cream rug? We are on the hunt for something similar for our MI lake house as well. Much appreciated!
The rug is actually carpet that has been inset into our wood floors and the wall color is agreeable gray – thanks!
Love the new chair ! And the color you’ve brought it down there !
Yes I have to agree with kids the Ottomans become just a hard to clean table.
So I have one question …. with the fabulous lower level /basement, Where do you keep all of your cleaning supplies like your vacuum cleaner mops etc. I don’t see any ‘rough’ storage places in your house . It seems as every square inch is beautiful ! I need to know your secret .
Hey Debbie we actually have a large cabinet in our laundry room where I keep cleaning supplies as well as a closet in my daughters bathroom where I keep supplies too! Thanks!
Love the basement and the chair is puuuurfect! Did u go with down or poly fill??
That chair is so fun! I love the colors that are developing down there – you have such a gift for design. I switched to a glass coffee table after one too many beverage dribbles but have you seen the clear acrylic tables? I don’t know how easily they scratch but they sure are cute. Thanks for the basement update, Kelly, and enjoy your summer.
Oh yes those are so fun!
Can I ask where your rug is from? Love the color combo.
Yes it’s from Wayfair here is the link https://rstyle.me/n/dk5ed2b6kv7
What is the name of the basement rug on Wayfair? Please. I just love it!
Nothing I love better in a home than a beautiful room that is a loved space to be in. The chair is definitely a winner!
Yes we use this a ton so I really wanted it to be cozy down here!
