Linking up with Kelly's home tour this summer sounded like a fun way to show the rest of the new house off! Today's subject is living rooms! I feel like this post is kind of lazy because I really don't want to tidy up both rooms to take pictures at the moment. I will just plan on updating later.
We have a HUGE formal living room. When my parents lived here we NEVER used this room growing up. It was so many different things, but mostly an office, and never a living room. Ha! Well, we don't sit in here all the time but it fits our big furniture just fine. I could envision building built ins with a fire place on the far blank wall. I feel like that would give it a lot of character.
This picture was taken the morning of Adley's 2nd Birthday!
Since then I have moved the love seat out of the living room and placed it in our "den" off the kitchen. Chris and I disagreed about what this space should be used for. He wanted a table here since it's in the kitchen, plus that's what my parents had here. Womp Womp. Well, originally before the original renovation, this was your basic 1970's wood panelling den and it was closed off. I wanted it to be a space where the girls could hang while I cook or I could listen to my DVR shows while I clean the kitchen or fold laundry.
So here it is...
I have plans to replace the mantle with a barnwood style mantle and get a bigger tv and hide the cords in the wall. Or should I say Chris is going to do that. The decor is what I call Americana Chic. It matches my kitchen style seen here.
