It occurred to me after I made my last Blog post announcing the house sale – that many of the rooms have had updates since I last wrote about them – so I am going to take this week to update all of the room descriptions, including source lists and paint colors! So get ready to see me in your “IN” box each day this week. Truth be told – I am been longing to WRITE more – and this might just be the push I needed.
Our LIVING ROOMs are the heart of our home.
I will never forget the day we first visited the house.
It was snowy and cold and the house had been empty for 3 years. But she had great bones. And I immediately could see how beautiful she was – even in her neglected state.
I rounded the corner and looked the length of the living room and saw…the mirror.
This is the BEFORE OF OUR LIVING ROOMS!
True to their name – we LIVE in our LIVING rooms!
We have removed the TV from the “Pink” Living room, so most of the lounging AND working remotely and best of all – Netflix etc. binging takes place in the front living room.
There are so many possible configurations for living room design, and when you are working with two adjoining rooms or an open floor plan – traffic patterns can present unique (and fun) challenges.
Thanks for taking a look at the Living room! Tomorrow I will share the Kitchen and Dining room!
