This Is How You Make a 270-Square-Foot Family Room Look Spacious

Is there anything that Emily Henderson can't do? We're pretty sure the answer to that is no, even though it was a rhetorical question. She continues to blow us away with her aspirational yet approachable style and her latest room reveal from the Portland Project proves she hasn't lost her touch—you have to see the stunning master bedroom and pewter green kitchen.

But this family room didn't come without its challenges. At just 270 square feet Henderson had to figure out how she could create a cozy space you could relax in while dinner is getting ready but still have it feel spacious and open. "As a designer, my main goal was to effortlessly connect the dining room and kitchen aesthetically," she tells me. We think she nailed it.

Ahead, Henderson takes us through the design process of this neutral, cozy, and layered family room.
