Just to the left of the front door is our den and craft studio. To the right are some bedrooms and straight ahead is the great room.
We had three different couches in our last home, and luckily one of them was just perfect for this room. This leather sectional was in the basement of our old house, and is great to seat lots of people when watching movies.
The great room opens up to the kitchen and dinning room, with the master bedroom just beyond that.
Before we moved I would stay up at night trying to picture our furniture in this house, and figure out what would go in each room. We have been really happy with how our things have transitioned. Some of it could have been a disaster. Our gray couches would never have worked in this room for us.
The walls are a sage green, and have been burdensome to me since we first walked through the house. I like green, just more along the lines of kelly or grass, and not on my walls.
The builder did some fabulous wood work. From the wood door, to the beams, ceiling, and trim work there is a lot of wood. In our last house I always fretted over the wood floor matching the cabinets, etc. Now I've realized wood just goes with wood. It really works on it's own.
I love the paneled ceiling and would put it in another house in a heartbeat, but I would paint it white. While I might get Mike to paint the walls white for me, we will not be painting the ceiling. This house was built with a definite aesthetic and I don't want to try to paint over that. I think it's better to enjoy what it is.
So what do you think? Wanna come over for movie and pizza Friday night?
