It has been one crazy busy week & it has flown by way too quickly! I’m so happy that I had taken the week off work … we managed to get a lot done even with me taking breaks to just hang by the pool ( it was hard not to, the weather was perfect!) and we even had friends over & grilled out a couple times, so I guess that’s pretty good considering it’s only been 10 days since closing.
I thought I’d post a few pics of the living room. I took these pics on move in day so this is exactly how we found it. The living room is the first room you see when you come in the front door. This house has a lot of steps, you walk into a foyer but then go up a few steps into the living room & then step up again into the dining room & rest of the first floor. There are also a lot of wood railings which I will be changing to iron, and I will have the risers painted white to break up all the wood. The French doors lead to the office

The two windows on either side of the fireplace overlook the pool. I obviously need to get a mantel for the fireplace, not to mention remove those globes & curtains. This room has 12′ ceilings & really tall windows so it will be beautiful with curtains hung very high. I have a huge antique French mirror that will fit perfectly over the mantle

This is the type of mantel I want in limestone

If anyone knows of a great source I’d love to know!

This window overlooks the front yard & pond. I love how this house is elevated, almost every window has a pretty view.

Here is the room with some of my furniture placed in it. Can’t wait to repaint, this is definitely not my color scheme. I’m thinking a pale chalky gray for the walls

A view of the steps up to the rest of the house
I have already met with an electrician ( to wire for sconces in the dining room & hang chandeliers & ceiling fans), a painter & a stair guy (to replace the railings)

This is the style I chose. I wanted to keep it simple & classic. The finish I picked is oil rubbed bronze, which will also go on all of the door hardware.
My cushions came in today for the pool furniture but it was raining so we will put them out tomorrow. I will try to post a quick pic if I get a chance! Ok…off to bed..work in the morning :(
