Catching Up- Living Room Photos!

Well, the self-imposed deadline I wrote about last time totally worked. By the time we had our housewarming party, the kitchen and dining room were painted, the curtains in every room but the dining room were hung, and everything was tidy!

Of course, I took photos to document it. A few things have changed since then, but I’m working on detailing that in other posts!

I always seem to have about five posts “pre-written” in my brain, but getting them down into the computer? Finding the time is difficult.

Forget what it looked like when we moved in at the end of April? Click Here. Has it been almost three months already?

The week of the housewarming we pulled the trigger on the amazing credenza you see above from our favorite vintage shop, Vestige!

To those of you who follow my blog & were able to come to the housewarming, I had such a fabulous time! To my family members who joined us the following morning for Father’s Day brunch, same to you! I felt so happy to host two back to back gatherings in our new home!

  1. Hi, Guys! Your place looks great!! I need to do so much decorating to our new place….just a matter of making the time.

    1. Thank you! The gold frame with prints is a trick I’ve used several times– ever since I bought the empty frame in fact! It’s too pretty not to use!

    1. Thank you, Emily! I have so many exciting and creative ideas in my head but am so glad to have it attractive and livable already.

  2. These photos are gorgeous. I love the way everything has turned out. I can’t wait to make many more wonderful memories with you and Doug at your new place!

  3. So… I tried to comment once already so if this shows up twice and I look dumb just look away.

    The credenza goes so well with your coffee table. And they both look so good with that perfect rug!! Also I love the plant on your balcony.

    1. I didn’t see another comment–the Internet must have been hungry. Thank you Libby! I am in love with our new credenza. I just sit staring at it. The plant on my balcony has gone bananas even in the past month– I love it! We’ve had to relocate it because it started getting too close to the chair! Plant claustrophobia…

  4. Very nice! A beautiful update of a vintage condo!

    I’d like to suggest something you may want to consider in the future, after you’ve experienced this setting for a while. I had a similar difficult arrangement — an orphan wall separated from the rest of the room by a high-traffic area with a door to one side and an open walkway to the other. I tried the arrangement you have, but I found I disliked my guests having to speak up while sitting 5+ feet away and having the natural light always reflecting off of the TV. I ended up making the orphan wall the media wall, containing my TV & stereo. I put the main couch in the usual TV viewing position (against the wall directly across from the TV), but moved the 2nd couch to the wall facing the glass door (where the TV was). This did several things: the seating arrangement was much more intimate and conducive to group conversation, the flow in/out of the glass door was easier, more natural light in the room (nice in the winter!), the main couch was still the main TV viewing site, and the light from the glass door no longer reflected off of the TV back into our eyes. It took quite a while for me to discover this configuration, and all of the small positives seem add up to more than the sum of their parts.

    Your update is wonderful; this comment is just meant to be something for you to file in your bag of tricks if you ever need it…

    Can’t wait to see your next update!
