We’ve been in our new house since August 3rd, and although it is still a work in progress, we have gotten allot done!
I love having a two story foyer! I never have until now!
The space is so light & airy!
From the front door, you can look right through the house to the woods out back through the morning room windows!
We looked for homes with no formal separate living room or dining room…but to no avail.
We rarely used our living room or dining room in our previous homes, so we decided to use the room designated as the living room in this house as the home office-
and the dining room as my library!!
I do love to read and have accumulated tons of books over the years!!
The library has all of the cottage decor stuff I kept from my previous home. You can go from the foyer through the office and library into the kitchen.
Or, you can walk straight down the foyer hall and get to the kitchen, family room and the morning room that way!
Everyone loves this part of our home.
This is the HEART of our new home- the rooms we live in!!
The kitchen is big and light and fantastic!!
This is my first house with gas cooking and I love it!! I love the big island and the big picture window over the sink which looks out onto the back yard, firepit and woods.
The model of this house used the living room and dining rooms as they were supposed to be and the morning room was decorated like a den with couches.
But our morning room is our dining room. We love the big bright windows and the view of the new patio, back yard and woods beyond!!
I love the one painted accent wall! I think the Granny Smith Apple green we painted it is just perfect!!
We are building a stone patio out back and just now can finally use the back door from the morning room as the stairs down to the patio were just finished!
The patio is almost done and the furniture for it will be delivered next week. I’ll post more pictures of it then!
The family room furniture is new and all are recliner seats from Lazyboy! The family all love this!!
The red wall gives the room such a cozy feeling!
We are looking for some more cool clocks to add to the red wall on both sides of the big black one!
Upstairs, the master bedroom is behind double doors on the left!
We ditched our old cheap bedroom furniture-
and bought a big beautiful new set!
I wasn’t sure I’d like my Caribbean blue quilt and shams on it, but I do!!
And the big airy bathroom is so sparkling white!!
I bought a dark shelf unit and bright towels to give it a burst of color!!
We have a terrific closet here, too.
We bought and assembled the closet furniture from Ikea!!
My DIL’s both want to live in our closet!! LOL!
Across the landing from the master bedroom is a big linen closet holding allot of my quilts, then the laundry room!!
Not too much to look at, it is so convenient upstairs! It has a sink and cabinets, too!!
Next is the guest bathroom- we call it Yogi’s room!! I love it! See? I really am trying to get to know orange!! LOL!!
Next to it, is the guest room!!
Al says it’s too girly, but I think it’s quaint!
It has a great view of the back woods!
We have an extra room upstairs that is pretty much empty at this point! And then comes my sewing room! I’ve still got a few more things to get done in my sewing room before I do the reveal! And then the basement downstairs also has a bit more tweaking!! So that’s it for now!!
Yogi is doing really well here! He seems to have settled right in and feels quite at home!!
