A lot of people have been asking for pictures of the house. I'm going to be honest with you: I'm not even close to being ready to show you my house. Although it's no longer a disaster it's now been down graded to a category three major mess. That being said I decided I could still show you some of my favorite things about the house. Here we go.
We have radiators everywhere. They rule
This room is connected to our garage. It's totally creepy right now and not just because I took a picture of it at night time. We are calling this the champagne room and you had better just wait because we are dreaming it into a screen porch with twinkly lights and plants and dinner parties.
Here's a good corner that I put together. We painted our living room turquoise. It totally compliments the danish modern.
These alters are amazing. They were originally meant to be a place to put your telephone but I like to think they're alters. Anyways I'll get something good in these in the future. In the meantime also check out the yellow we chose to paint the dining room in. Oh yeah.
This is my doorbell. It's adorable. It doesn't work. I'm not going to let that stop me, though. If anybody knows an electrician let me know because I'm looking to get this fixed on the asap.
Built ins. I was dead set on having built-ins in my future home. Although they're not as striking as a built in buffet I am totally in love with the ones I have. You can't tell from the photo but I have two of these in the corners of my dining room. And again, check out that paint color.
We have a giant deck off the kitchen. It's not in great shape and we're planning to have it replaced in the next couple of years but for now it totally does the trick. We also have a giant silver maple that provides shade for the whole back yard. The tree needs to be trimmed back, which is another huge job, but when I'm able to stop thinking about what needs to happen and I instead focus on what's already happening I can't imagine a place better than sitting under my tree on my deck in my back yard.
I love being in the kitchen and whipping up tasty snacks and cocktails. This kitchen is no exception. At first glance you may only notice a stove or a refrigerator but look closer and you will see that there are cut outs especially for these appliances. Also see that little broom closet next to the stove? Classic!
One last thing, for now, that I wanted to share is my bathroom. The only real exciting part of the bathroom (beside the obvious) is that I painted it green and the tiles are original to the house from 1926.
I promise to keep sharing our home updates as they happen.
