Hello friends! Welcome to my new house. I gave you a sneak peek yesterday and hinted that there may be more to come. I took a few shots around the house yesterday and have felt motivated by some of you kind friends and family who have commented on the digs. Thanks for the encouragement. Like I said yesterday, I LOVE it around here. With yet ANOTHER trip to Home Goods today, there are additional pictures to add. This weekend will be a big push toward getting the tv mounted on the living room wall and other odds and ends that seem to nag but not be on the top of the list for necessary living.
So come on in and have a look around.
As you enter the living room/ entry way (that was pictured yesterday with the marble fireplace and two chairs on either side of it) you look to the left and notice an amazing wood spiral staircase. This is most definitely the focal point of the downstairs. It is lovely. It also makes the space a touch *confusing*. For me anyhow. The downstairs doesn't flow like a normal living space. Normal is over-rated though, right?!
(Ironically, I just mentioned all of the natural light and then I have included the darkest photo I could get of the entire house. Honestly, I'm just too lazy to re-take a better picture. Nice.)
Sadly, that gorgeous chandelier is not currently working. The previous owners said that it never worked for them in 8 years. One of the second tier priorities is to get an electrician out here to fix it. It's just too pretty to have it in non-working condition. I am looking forward to some day getting things on the walls, a rug, the tv off of the beautiful marble fireplace etc. It is a beautiful bedroom and I feel like a queen laying my head down each night.
Later this weekend, I look forward to taking you upstairs. I hope you will come back!
