Our home - the main floor

I have been meaning to take more recent photos of our home for ages now. I've only managed to photograph the bedrooms lately since I've recently redecorated them and now I thought it was time to take photos of the main floor. I am constantly moving furniture, adding new pieces and repainting and I find it so hard to keep up with photographing our home because it usually isn't clean or tidied up enough for picture taking. During Simon's nap today (Isabella was over at my parents' place), I made time and here are the resulting photographs:

I found a floor plan online (not shown on the floor plan is our finished basement which is the kids' play area/family room):


our front door and my fav Hunter boots


view looking into the house from just inside the front door. I love our hardwood floors but they need constant cleaning.
front hall table area
view to the back of the house

the dining room (the builder intended this to be the living room)


the teak buffet used to be my grandmother's. it's huge and one of my favourite pieces.


the only downfall of swapping the living room and dining room is that there is no fixture in the ceiling here for a chandelier...it's over in our living room...
first two photos on the left are of Isabella and the other two are of Simon. On top of the buffet is my sister's west german pottery collection that she 'lent' me.

i love antlers
peek into the living room
we bought the rocker and round side table for Simon's room but until his crib is retired, they've made their home in this corner. we need a coffee table BAD and a carpet that isn't so damn bright. I love this carpet though because it's so soft and shaggy.
a look from the living room couch into the adjacent kitchen and eating area
our kitchen - small but functional
the crazy small piece of wall that has way too many light switches, the doorbell thingy and the thermostat. i tried to make it even more busy by adding three framed postcards.

  9. you guys are so sweet! and can I just say that the green on the walls is alot more subtle than how it turned out in these photos. it is SO hard to photograph properly.

    and thank you Sarah! I'm honoured!

  10. That green is wonderful. And I think my favorite is the view to the back of the house--you get a little piece of everything.

    And I've gotta say, girl, you don't know from small kitchens! I'd send you pictures of that but we know how long it'd take! I did finally take pictures of Gabe's room now I have to upload them! Baby steps!!!
