We're strong believer that family-friendly homes can be the most fun because they bring in practicality, functionality and a whole lot of playful elements and colors. This Craftsman home, designed by Kati Curtis with photographs by Scott Francis - does just that and then some — but with a dash of totally enviable elegance. Take a look!

As they say, there’s no second chance to make a first impression, and a foyer sets the tone for a home. It’s the space where you get to welcome guests and create the entire house’s design story.
Use a vibrant throw to add a pop of color to a space or use a fur blanket to add texture and warmth to your rooms. And for a bit of inspiration, see how some of our favorite designers use stylish throws to complete these homey, welcoming spaces.
“I have never really thought about this consciously before, but I always do a velvet sofa. I have one in my current home, gravitated towards velvet sofas in my past apartments, and used them in a lot of our projects without thinking about it. Velvets are soft, comfortable, durable, and stand the test of time. Velvets also can work for all sofa styles and can swing both traditional and modern.” —Kati Curtis, founder and principal at Kati Curtis Design
