our house

Welcome to our new house! Come on in.

First we have the entryway. Notice the abundance of flowery wallpaper, floor to ceiling.

(The black blob on the stairs is what is left of my Martha Stewart inspired Halloween mice decorations.)

Go through the french doors and to the left is our family room.

To the right is the kitchen.

Pass through the kitchen to the dining room and living room.

Again, more floor to ceiling wallpaper and lovely pink carpet! The fort made from moving boxes is an architectural highlight.

Here are the patio and backyard, and view of the house from the back. We have lots of trees that needed to be trimmed, and now we have lots of branches lying around that need to be disposed of.

The bedrooms aren't really exciting enough to post pictures, although the master bedroom also has pink carpet.
We love having space. The deep storage closets are perfect for hiding in and playing if you are a three-year-old.

The house is about the same age as the house I grew up in, so some of the original fixtures are familiar to me. That linoleum in the closet and these doorknobs, for example.

We are trying to decide what our first project will be. Replace windows? Remove wallpaper? Paint over wallpaper? Flooring? There are so many options. We are open to any decorating suggestions so if you have any ideas please send them our way. Also, come visit! We finally have somewhere for you to sleep other than on the couch!

So happy for you!! Looks like lots of fun headed your way. If I were you, I would do flooring last, that way you can be as careless as you want as you relpace wall paint, etc...We'll miss you guys:) --Beth Larsen
