House Pics

Finally! We're settled into our new house and life is gaining a little normalcy. We're having so much fun! Shopping for furniture, figuring out paint colors. 
Who knew how great a date night at Home Depot could be. 

Now remember we are just starting to decorate the house and make it the way we want it. Someday these will be the "before pics". But it gives you an idea. Love any advice you have. I'm not a designer by any stretch.

Main Floor. 

Shane is planning on adding a lot of trim to this space and we will be painting soon. We are also shopping for living room furniture but haven't found just what we want. 
It's a little bare right now as you can see. That huge built in mirror is a little intense. Looking at mantel decor ideas.

The kitchen looks into the living room though a pass though. Gives it a nice open feel.

And it really is this clean ALL the time.

Or at least until 7:30AM.

I really like the kitchen, though it needs to be updated with granite. We bought a new stainless steel fridge and eventually will match the rest of the appliances. 

A couple yellow pops. 

I won't tell you how huge that pantry is. 
Well, okay I will.

It's gynormous. :)

I found a black hutch at a vintage furniture store that was just the right match for our tiny table. 
We've since replaced the stainless hardware on the hutch with black.

Off of the living room is the study. Lydia calls it the library. 

It's my favorite room in the house. 

We always knew we wanted a study with a masculine, dark wood look. I wanted a place to showcase my Pendleton blankets, and I thought they looked kind of cool on the bookcases. 

Now what color should the walls be?

The other side of the study. Love this little desk. Just bought it last week. Merry Christmas to me!

So there's the main floor. I'll post photos of the upstairs when we finish unpacking. 
So sometime in the Spring. :)

I really love this house.

Looks very lovely. It's always fun moving into a new spot and making it "your own."

It's gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you all do to it. So far I love your choices in furniture and decor (then again, you always have great taste).

Congrats on a great house!
