Here's our home a couple weeks ago, when the flowers were in bloom (they're mostly pink now). It's so lovely to drive onto our cul de sac and see it right in the middle! It's my happy place.
Once you walk into the front door, there's an office to the left. Right now, the bookshelves are completely overwhelmed, but we're on the lookout for some new shelves to go in the sitting room. I do like the way this room has come together: academic but not stuffy.
Our sitting room! AKA yoga studio 1. The windows let in a ton of light, and I'm digging the warm grey on the walls. This room will one day have furniture in it, but it's really low on the priority list right now.
Right next to sitting room is the dining room, aka yoga studio 2. We'll get a table and chair one day, along with a buffet to go under JP's 'Ecstasy,' but, again, no rush on this space. I'm kind of looking forward to it being a tummy time area for the churro!
These windows look into the backyard; more pictures on that next week after JP and I get our hands in it this weekend.
From the dining room, this is the view: kitchen straight ahead, family room to the left, and staircase to the right.
The family room is our homey space, with the big ol' couch and the teeny ol' coffee table (it's just a substitute until we find our forever table). Mia loves sleeping in the sunlight that comes in; it's the cutest thing.
The view of the family room from the breakfast nook; how do you like our owl perched on top of the built-ins? Again, the bookshelves are color-coordinated and packed to the gills. We're very literate.
Our wonderful laundry room, with lots of storage and a cute little bird sign from Grandma in North Carolina! Very practical and I totally don't mind being in here a lot throughout the week.
Upstairs is our bedroom, which is the most awesome oasis. It's awful to get out of this bed in the morning. We're going for a clean, minimal look in here, to keep our minds calm.
The master bathroom is another relaxing space. It actually gets tons of light, but this photo totally doesn't do it justice.
I could write odes to my closet. That's right, this is all mine! (JP's is to the right of his dresser in the photo of the master bedroom.)
It should be noted that I can't fit into about 1/3 of this stuff at 24 weeks. Pregnancy is kind of rough on a wardrobe.
Our guest room is pretty simple: bed, dresser, nightstand in shades of beige and brown. It needs some color, but is definitely open for business (wink, wink).
I'll post more photos as the house comes together more. Seriously, you're going to love the nursery when it's done. Here's a little peek of what's going on in there so far...
