Family Room Design Ideas : The OC Ranch Reno

I am so excited to be getting to the point in the OC Ranch Reno process to be planning the furniture and decor design plan! This house will be used as more of a vacation home, so the design plan is going to lean more toward a beachy/CA col vibe. I am such a visual person that I have a hard time doing anything without creating a design board. Whether for my own home or client’s homes. It is so helpful to put together a board of the basics so that you can get the overall feel of a space before you spend the money to put it together. These family room design ideas are no exception! Here is the design board for this fun family room:

Despite its numerous strengths, fiberglass siding from Apex, a product we had recommended and installed, was discontinued in the spring of 2015. There are two other products AMEK Exteriors continues to rank as in the top tier of long-lasting siding with superior appearance. Depending on your requirements and your budget, either choice will be a solid exterior siding decision. Here are some considerations for fiber cement vs. engineered wood.

Fiber cement siding which is created from a wood pulp and Portland cement combination is known for its resistance to rot, pest damage from termites and woodpeckers,and fire plus its longevity.

Paint lasts much longer – 15 years vs. 5 years – which give homeowners the choice to change the color of

Decorating 101 – Interior Design Basics

If you weren’t born with the ability to imagine a room complete with furniture placement, wall hangings, and rug and accent choices, it is something you can develop and hone over time. Learn the basics of home decorating, including design principles, decorating styles, and answers to decorating challenges. 

Interior Design Compared With Interior Decorating

Interior design and interior decorating are often mistaken for the same thing, but the terms are not completely interchangeable. Interior design is a profession that requires specific schooling and formal training, including space planning, furniture design, and architecture. An interior decorator does not have that formal training and focuses on the aesthetics and the surface appearance of a space. Who you would hire depends on whether you have any structural work or space planning to be done or you need someone to plan the decor only.

Balance is another principle—distributing the visual weight

Siding color? Brown. Trim? Brown. Gutters? Brown!

“Just paint it all brown!” – The previous owners, probably.

Seriously though, this is our first home and we couldn’t be more excited! The home needs a lot of work on the exterior, but we feel like we got a fair deal on it and have the budget to fix it up.

The good and the bad news is that most of the exterior features will need replaced within the next few years. The deck and deck railing are due to be replaced now. The siding is mostly in good condition, but needs some panels replaced and painted. The gutters have seen better days. The roof is 25 years old. Basically, we have the opportunity to make the exterior exactly how we want it without

Design – Wikipedia

Drafting of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or of a system; process of creation; act of creativity and innovation

A design is a plan or specification for the construction of an object or system or for the implementation of an activity or process, or the result of that plan or specification in the form of a prototype, product or process. The verb to design expresses the process of developing a design. In some cases, the direct construction of an object without an explicit prior plan (such as in craftwork, some engineering, coding, and graphic design) may also be considered to be a design activity. The design usually has to satisfy certain goals and constraints, may take into account aesthetic, functional, economic, or socio-political considerations, and is expected to interact with a certain environment. Major examples of designs include architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit
