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.

BEFORE:
AFTER:


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.

Hugs!
