Home Tour Part I: Living Room

I'm back online again! It took a while, but BOY OH BOY we have been super busy.

This home tour will take a couple weeks, if not longer. The truth is, the only room that is (semi) complete as of today is the living room.


The living room is directly off the entry way when you enter the house. Everything in the room is brand new (to us anyway), since we've never had a living room before. Since Jake was the most excited about this space, he adopted it as his own, and all design decisions were his. Actually, I got to pick the paint color, cause I've always wanted a light blue living space.

Jake chose an updated mid-century theme, complete with authentic vintage coffee table and record console (both purchased at an estate sale). I really love the room so far - isn't he doing a great job?

He hopes to trade out the wooden chair for two matching chairs and a glass-top side table in the near future, and maybe reconfigure the room. He also plans to hang the flower art above the record console, add a wall-suspended bookshelf, and paint some of the current accessories white (magazine rack, floor lamp, etc.)

I have so been craving a little mid century entry table like the stereo console you guys got. Craigslist's got nothing! It is looking so great!

Jake is doing a wonderful job! Way to go...and with great taste. Your home is lovely with the soft mood setting paint! :)

Thank You for your help! I did a post about Niki's son last night and if there is anything you or your many Arizona friends can do to help or befriend this family, I would so appreciate it! The missionaries gave her son a blessing last night. I don't know if this happened because of you or others that have been contacted. I am just grateful!

Wish you could be at the wedding this weekend! We miss seeing you.
