Kellys Korner

Well I decided to participate in the Tour of Homes again at Kellys Korner Blog. Since I don't really sleep much I am enjoying looking at other living rooms tonight and decided to post some pictures I took of our living areas. I love to look at other peoples houses and even go to open houses for fun or decorating ideas if I get a chance. Anyway this tour is fun because you can look in your pajamas in the middle of the night when you don't sleep-ha! If you like to look at other houses too, go take a look at her blog!

Here are some pictures BEFORE I took the time to actually pick up the toys that usually cover this area. This living area has actually become another toy area where Ella can watch a movie while she and Sophie play and we are near them in the Kitchen.

Here is an AFTER clean-up view from the stairs to our bonus room.

Here is a shot of the TV/toy cabinet. I had a hard time deciding how to fill up the space above it from the vaulted ceiling. I eventually took 2 large canvases and covered them with left over fabric from the curtains in this room and the Breakfast area.

Here is a darker shot of this room from the Kitchen.

Here is a picture of our other living room. We mostly watch TV or play the Wii in this room. This room was supposed to have a vaulted ceiling too but we changed the plans to a double tray ceiling and took out the fireplace because we only wanted to have one.

Here is another view where you can see the passthrough to the Kitchen and part of the Dining room in the back ground.

Here is a shot with the foyer in the background.

Here is a view from the Dining Room.

This is a picture of my favorite addition to this room. The new pictures of our girls we had made when Sophie turned 1. We just framed them and hung them up last week. We used Heather Owens Photography in Little Rock, AR. She did great and the best part is they were very affordable!

Thanks for looking around!

You have a beautiful home! Maybe you could hang the canvas above the t.v. and then put black and white photos of your family on it. I think floating frames would look great..

Love the windows, the archways and openness of it all!! I like homes that looked "lived in," all the toys just prove you are blessed with the greatest gifts...children!!
