i cleaned up the dining room today so to celebrate here are a few more unedited pictures of the interior...
view of the formal dining room from the kitchen:
the dining room is round. i'm not sold on keeping this rug in here especially because i think it would be too small once a table is in the room. if anyone would like to donate a round table and chairs to the white family i'll be your best friend forever:
a peak of the kitchen from the dining room:
the staircase is across from the dining room. real life = dirty clothes on the stairs and vacuum cleaner at the ready all the time:
entry. i had to stand outside to get enough light behind the camera in order to get this shot. the house is dark and difficult to photograph because the ceilings are so tall thus the canned lighting is too high to truly illuminate the rooms:
oh hello lamp cord, bare bulb and empty wall (it's a work in progress). that little window with the wrought iron is part of our wine room, which is waaaaay too dark to photograph. but i'll try someday. because i love you:
here is our huge iron door and my homemade "no solicitors" sign. we had three people a day knocking, welcoming us to the neighborhood, then trying to sell us stuff. annoying:
in the hallway, a place to keep all our files:
the guest bathroom:
i set out a few candles and hung paintings the boys made:
the guest bedroom with pillows that will eventually go on the bed:
the room has a large, lovely window:
a view of the hall from the opposite direction. the french doors lead to jer's office with the guest bathroom and bedroom beyond:
a straight-on view of the living room (and backyard) from the hall. hard to photograph but you can see the whole back wall of the house is windows. i'm considering keeping them bare, no curtains. we'll see. off to the right you can see the eat-in area of the kitchen with chandelier:
y'all are motivating me to continue getting things put away - thank you!!
