So I mentioned before my husband was working on something and boy what a difference it has made......truly has brought some much needed character to our home.
First I'll start by telling you we finally got some new couches in our living room and I LOVE them!!! I have had my eye on this set FOREVER and finally we got it!! The couches are much bigger than our last set so I had to do some rearranging to make it all fit. I still need to get some new end tables to match, maybe a large tree to fill the back corner, and a coffee table or new ottoman as well but one thing at a time I guess......so here are our new couches:
Speaking of couches, I also got some pillows to add to our "little living room" couch....I think it ties in the accent colors a bit more and makes it look a little more inviting:
oh yah...so back to my husband's latest project.....as usual he did a fantastic job on this one!! It really looks so nice and brings a lot of character to our plain jane home. When planning this project we went back and forth between a couple different styles but I'm pretty pleased that we decided to just keep it simple......in addition I literally agonized over colors for months (I know its just paint :-)) but I'm so glad we ended up going with the color we did as its such a soothing, warm, compliment to the colors we already have and will have in our home......so are you ready?
Our new entry!!
So in addition to the entry, my husband also painted the mud room.
Still feels like we have so much more to do before the entry is fully completed....we were hoping to paint our entry doors black, I need to put some black and white matted and framed pictures along the long wall in the entry, next to the entry door I'm considering either a wall mounted coat hook like this one from Pottery Barn:
or some pictures I already have currently above the couch in our "little living room" that look like this:
So I know in past posts I mentioned I had some entry way ideas. In the Ravenna model there is no closet near the front entry so no place for coats when guests visit. However, the door to our basement is in our entry and most of our guests assume it is a closet......soooooo this is what I have done:
So sorry this was such a long post but there has just been so much going on that I've been pretty excited to share......we'll try to keep the projects coming (still have some in the pipeline for this summer), but let me know what you think........
