When we first moved in to our house (back in 2007) the one thing I knew, as far as paint colors, was that I wanted to paint the living room red. We had white furniture (that sounds really funny now) and a big living room, so my heart was set on red. So I painted it red. I never loved how the color turned out, and after trading our white furniture for a brown sectional, I convinced E that we needed a new color. I was able to find a shade just a couple lighter than the tan we used in our dining room so the two rooms would flow together well. I love how it has brightened up the room!
On to the tour. Coming in through our front door you are in our living room, with our dining room through the arch. Just inside the front door there's a small closet to the left where we keep our coats and shoes. As you walk strait in there's a stool and an armoire that holds our TV.
As you'll notice throughout this room, and really our whole house, I love photos of our family, and they are featured throughout our house. I especially love the big photo of the four of us from fall 2012.
