I know I posted this picture of our family room in my other post, but I want to include all house pictures in these posts too, so sorry if you've already seen it! So anyways, this is our family room, excuse Hansel photobombing. I think the only thing missing in this picture (because I took it a few weeks ago) are a few knicknacks on the end table. To the left is the staircase, and behind me when I took this picture is the kitchen and breakfast nook, which is my next picture.
Hansel again with the photobomb. We just love how open our first floor is, it's the main reason we loved this house the minute we saw it! Obviously through the door in the middle is the laundry, and you can access the garage from the laundry room. The door to the left leads out to our covered deck, behind me is obviously the family room, and to my right is the front hallway, powder room, staircase, living room, etc. The right side of the kitchen leads into the dining room, which is also accessible from the front hallway (which is where I took the next picture from).
So this is our dining room. We don't have a real dining room table right now, and we probably won't for awhile because we probably won't use that room a lot for a few years, so a dining room table is low on the budget totem pole. Don't you just love that hutch though? When we lived in our apartment, the woman who owned it had it, and it was painted red, and we bought it off her and painted it a much better color, obviously. I also love that little table to the left, it's so cute!
Excuse this picture quality, it's awful I know. This is the living room/office. I first took this picture standing in the doorway, but the light coming in from the windows made it impossible. So then I tried to take the picture from the corner, but then you could see me in the mirror out in the hall and that was a no-no. So I am sitting on the couch with my arm shakily sticking out trying to take this pic, which is why my lovely shoulder is in the bottom left corner, sorry 'bout that! Anyways, I just love this room. It is so bright and cheery and I would love to one day be able to work from home in here! Out the doorway to the left is the powder room, then into the family room, kitchen, stairs... To the right is the front door and the dining room.
I just have to say, I love our backyard. It's another main reason we loved this house. It is completely private, with trees on the sides so you can't see any neighbors, and it's nice that no one is behind us. The ceiling fan on the deck comes in very handy on really warm days, and the fire pit for chilly nights.
And that's that! This post took me wayyyyy longer than I thought it would. See you Wednesday for Part 2, which will be the basement and the second floor!
