Well, I gave up on getting everything in order before giving you our new home tour. May as well stick with my usual modus operandi. You know, messes included.
Left of the fireplace wall
The metal wall art pieces were collected a piece at a time as they went on sale at Hobby Lobby. I love that store. You may remember the hymn canvas was hanging beside the stairs in our last house. That doorway goes into a short hall leading to the two guest bedrooms and bath.
Opposite the fireplace wall
The window overlooks the front porch, which is still a work in progress. Revealing much of my laziness personality, several prints, mirrors, and other hang-y stuff lean against the wall, waiting to find a home. Maybe on someone else’s walls. Why are they cluttering up our living room, you ask? My thinking was that if I have to look at them every day, I may get sick enough of the clutter to actually make a decision. So far, it hasn’t worked.
Right of the fireplace wall, opposite the sofa
I’m not as happy with the dresser-turned-tv stand in this space as I was in our keeping room. It looks kind of disproportionate here. I’m thinking about moving our buffet in here instead, but that creates another dilemma for the dining room.
To the left of the tv stand is a doorway into the kitchen. To the right, you can see a little peek of the dining room.
Yep, more random stuff lying on the ottoman, waiting on a decision.
The front door is just to the left of the window you saw in the last picture.
For now, I’m liking the clean look of bare floors and bare windows. We don’t have privacy issues here, so there is no hurry to make a decision on window treatments. I flip and flop on whether to add blinds, plantation shutters, or drapes.
Oh, by the way, the paint color throughout most of the house is Valspar White Pepper 4001-1A. Monitors show colors differently, but the walls look either pale taupe or gray, depending on the light. I love this color!
Still lots to do, but we’re getting there. And yes, it feels like a mansion after living in the camper for a year. God is good.
