Welcome to my home! I hope you will enjoy taking a peek at the madness. It is a work in progress for sure. If you have any fabulous, functional, frugal suggestions, please comment. We love to hear from our readers!
|Front door in the 2 story foyer|
|Server from the last house dwarfed by beautiful lamps with a mirror that was too small--what was I thinking?|
It did fill up the space a little better. We also added 3 pictures to fill the back wall. Jacki painted the pics based on the image below and I framed them.
|Sorry, it's a bad pic with the nasty glare but you get the idea.|
I would love to add some curtains but haven't gotten there yet. Hey- I warned you it's a work in progress!
Moving on across the foyer.... is the formal living room. Really? Really? What am I doing? Entertaining callers in the parlor? Pull--eeze!
So, yea... we are not using it as a formal living room. I wanted to actually be able to USE the room. So, it's an office.
|This was our first furniture arrangement.|
I moved the furniture around a little and added a rug for texture. The rug is sisal and from Ballard Designs (google for coupons-always!). You would not want to cozy up on this rug but this is not a room where we spend a ton of time on the floor. Well, I don't. But, I do have kids that spend some time in the floor in other parts of the house--in the office, not so much.
It was a real trick to coordinate these three spaces (foyer, formal LR & dining) since it is an open floor plan. But, I think it works, don't you?
