Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all the words of encouragement thru the week everyone!! It was a really hard week but its the LAST DAY!! and our art show opening is tonight!! and I am done school today!!! YEAH!!! My house looks like a tornado went thru it though… hehe.
Anyways, for the around the house today I actually want to share some around the house photos of our place. We had to take some home photos for something last week and I just wanted to share with all of you. We live in a 100 year old house with lots of old charm but that has been updated where it needs to be. I love all the old hardwood floors and the wide baseboards and molding around the windows.
Our kitchen is lime green with hints of orange and black. We wanted something really bright and refreshing to walk down to in the morning. Something that makes you ready for the day. Don’t you love the bobble head owl in the corner of the counter? haha I love it- Kev hates it! The 4 plates on the wall I made for our kitchen when we moved in last year. I will be making some more soon and adding them into my etsy store.
One of the things we loved so much about the house when we bought it was the really open floor plan. Each room just flows into the next. We love it! The dining room we painted a nice dark charcoal and brought in some of the green and orange from the kitchen. Kev totally picked out our big square dining room table and he is so proud of that! Most of the art around our house is something that I made from years past. The living room we just painted a light gray (same color as our bedroom actually). The painting above our TV I made especially for that spot though. I wanted something not to distracting because it was above the TV.
Kev’s office is off of the living room but connects also by a little up and over stairway into the kitchen. It is painted the same gray as in the dining room. The sunporch is off the office as well. We have a little couch in there because I usually sit on my laptop on that couch when he is doing work just so I can be near him. The art on the walls are actually t-shirts that kev has designed and have had printed for various things. Some we printed our selves on our screen printing press and some that were professionally printed. Then the other pictures are of my office (hehe well art room) I love bright colors so I love the purple. I also love the odd egg shaped window in that room. Its one of the bedrooms that we just made into my studio space. We have 3 bedrooms upstairs total.
and that’s our house!
