We’ve been painting a ton since we moved in but the time has come to start organizing and setting up things. I’m ready for it to feel more like home. It will be exciting to share pictures along the way with you all. I want the house to feel as settled as I can before the baby comes. The apartment we lived in before was around 1300sqft, our new house is around 2200sqft. Needless to say there are some empty rooms we need to fill. I am trying to make sure each room has a specific function and will be used by all of us. I did not want to buy a house where we would end up with rooms that weren’t lived in.
Our kitchen has what we are going to call a family room attached to it. We decided we didn’t want the tv to go in there because we wanted it to be a place to play, relax and enjoy company when we had dinner guests over (everyone hangs out by the kitchen anyways). We have a gas stove in there that I am really looking forward to using now that it is cooler. We decided not to get a big couch but instead get 2 chair and a half chairs. We have our big brown sectional in the living room already with the tv.
As you can see in the picture above we have a sweet sunroom off to the left, the gas stove on the right and you can see the island and the pantry doors from the kitchen. It really is a great space. We painted everything white when we moved in for a fresh & bright look. Here are some pictures that are a huge source of inspiration for the room (and the entire house in general).
