The living room. My...this house tour is taking a while. I blame it on camera/computer/laziness issues. Here is what we started with last year:
Talk about a clean(ish) slate. When we moved in we had exactly two pieces of living room furniture...a couch and a bookshelf. Oh, and a really terrible rug. Slooowly we've saved up (and visited a LOT of yard sales and thrift stores...and Ikea) to start turning it into something we really love.
Everything in this space has meaning and some sort of story. We don't have one single expensive or out-of-the-ordinary piece, but we have a lot of comfortable things...useful things...and things that make us smile. After all, it is just stuff...why have anything too nice or irreplaceable to really use? I guess we don't love it because of the actual things, we love it because it's home.
