Welcome to our new home! Would you like to take a look around? These are photos I took before we owned the house (it was actually during the inspection, hence the ladders and such) so this is a good chance to see it before we make any changes.
Cue Downton Abbey theme song. Missing a giant golden labrador... just pretend. ;-)
|This is the street view-- the building on the left is the detached garage. I love the Austin stone and brick, and we hope to put some rocking chairs on the porch.|
|This is the study, where we'll be spending a LOT of time. The floor looks like wood, but it's actually ceramic tile!|
|Downstairs bathroom. Yes, that's animal print. Eventually we'll paint. :-)|
|This is the utility/mud room. That shower is for Zach when he comes home from soccer I guess!|
|Master closet--it has a vanity!|
|Master bathroom. Eventually I'll get rid of the wallpaper and brass, but it's ok for now. Can't wait to use the tub!|
|Master bedroom--that door straight ahead goes to the back patio. Door on the right goes to the living room.|
|Living room. I'm so excited we have a fireplace! Not sure what we'll do with that hole in the wall--TVs aren't that shape anymore...|
|Kitchen. It's the only room in the house not neutral colors. But somehow it works. I love the slate colored tile throughout the house--it matches our table!|
|Upstairs living area|
|Upstairs bathroom. Again with wallpaper and brass... at least it's consistent!|
|Backyard patio - we're going to do something cool here eventually! They left the patio furniture and it's nice!|
|Backyard view of the detached garage.|
|Breezeway between garage and utility room. I think it would be nice to just sit out here!|
So there's our house! We're planning to move in next week. Even though the house is ready to go, we've got a list of things we want to do to it. I supposed that's a lifetime-long task, but we're really excited. I've been looking at furniture and decor, but I think we're just going to move in with what we have and a few pieces we got great deals on. I DO plan to get some fall decor because I don't want to wait a whole year for pumpkins! And I want to plant a few fall trees/plants.
What do y'all think? Do you have any suggestions for decor/style/gardening?
