I don’t have a clue why I haven’t posted pictures of our house yet- I’ve had every opportunity to do so! Last week I was talking to Jacqueline on the phone and she reminded me that she had been waiting to see pictures on the blog and that I needed to hop to it! She was waiting- patiently, I’m sure:)
I’ve posted this picture of the front of the house before, but, it is a perfect starting place- don’t you think?
The Entry/Formal Dining Room
You can sort of tell from this picture that we have the scraped wood flooring in the entry, love it. I adore our front door- the designed glass. (I took these pictures in the early afternoon- so plenty of light liked to mess up some of these photos)
The other half of the entryway. Totally in love with our new furniture piece- a crazy steal of a deal from the Dallas World Trade Center. The benefits of having a interior designer for a mother in law. We plan to put another piece on the wall in front of the dining table and a large painting (visible when you walk in), but all in good time- budgeting it out:)
The Guest Bath
I would show the guest room in addition to this guest bath photo, but couldn’t get a good angle.. and it isn’t ‘finished’ yet. So you can imagine:)
The Main Living
Looking in from the main hallway
Now looking in from the kitchen/dinette. You can see some of the entry, and the walk-in to the left of the clock on the wall is the garage entry/ mud-room. Jordan has plans for a good looking built-in to go there.. think hooks and a bench for backpacks, coats, and baby girl shoes:)
My absolute favorite part of the entire house! Again- with the weird lighting.
Double oven, walk-in pantry, and decent sized utility room (big enough to put another fridge in there for drinks and such.)
Love my gas cook top. Cooking over a gas flame is incredible. My cooking temperature is so much more controlled and the food comes out cooked perfectly.
Looking over the bar and into the main living.
Imagine a bar-height, round, four-seater table here..
..and three 30-inch bar stools to wrap the rather long bar we have. All a work in progress.
The Master Bedroom
I love our room- could hang out in here all day!
The woman that sold the house to us left that large mirror for our keeping. I plan to go over the frame with a darker stain for a little more bronze and less gold. But for now, it works. I love to have the large mirror in our room! Gotta check myself, you know;)
From the hall, looking in.
The Master Bath
Not super huge, but perfect for Jordan and me. Walk in shower, double sinks, and a jetted garden tub.
The closet is really large, and fits all of my clothes as well as all of Jordan’s clothes (before I had my clothes divided into a couple closets throughout the house.)
So there you have it. A work in progress. You didn’t see the office (mainly because it is pretty empty, and has become a catch all for random paintings and decor we haven’t quite found a place for yet.)
You also didn’t see the guest room (already explained myself for this one..) And the nursery (because I want to share that when I’m all done with it!) For the most part, you saw everything-and I will continue to post pictures as we complete rooms, add to, and make cuter.
I love/adore/swoon over our new home. After the first night Jordan’s mom asked if it felt weird to be in the new house- and honestly my answer was ‘no’. It feels like a home- even if at the time there were boxes everywhere and nothing hung on the walls. It just feels right:)
So happy to have this place we call home.
