The Work in Progress

Okay, so this living room will not officially be completed until…I don't know when it will be officially completed. I need to make the curtains, recover the rocking chair, make a window seat pad, and other assorted things, but out of courtesy to my entire family I will not start that process until much later. The past month has been hard on all of us in a this-house-looks-like-a-tornado-touched-down-here sort of way.

But I didn't want to wait until I don't know when  to post some photos. The truth is that though it isn't finished yet, I love this room. I love the color, I love the furniture placement, I love it. The house is finally starting to feel like ours.

These photos are not the best quality, but they will give you an idea.

Here's the room taken from the stairs (by the way, the ceiling is totally fixed and is the same color as the walls):

Here's another one of the bookshelves which still need a bit of rearranging and book placing:


And that's about all I can show you for now. The other side of the room still has boxes and scattered books. The view to the dining room…is just downright scary.

We're in the process of talking about color for the dining room right now. I'm leaning toward a warm yellow.
