I know many of you requested I do a home tour so I thought I would start room by room and share a little peak into our home sweet home. I am sure many of you feel the same way but most rooms in my house are a work in progress and never feel totally finished to me. Our den though is pretty close to being finished since I had the recess lighting installed and my wing back chairs recovered. We live in a small old ranch brick house and while I frequently yearn for more space I also truly love this little house we live in. It was our first home we bought together and where we brought both children home from the hospital. It holds so many special memories. We also love our neighborhood and neighbors so we may end up doing an addition here instead of moving who knows what the future holds for us.
I present our den aka family room. This is our main room we spend time in. It is long and narrow which makes it awkward for furniture arrangement. The only two things left I really want to do are buy a flat screen TV to mount on the wall (ours is an older version that can not be hung) and get some custom curtains made. This is where I can't make a decision- I welcome any input on fabric for the curtains. I also would love something new above the couch but Matt loves that darn mirror and I am having a hard time getting him to part with it.
I have always loved this corner in our entryway but hate the cords from the lights any tricks for that?
and yes I realize my top book is upside down, the kids ruined the top but I still love the book so just flipped it over. The joy of kids nothing is safe in your house:)
and my new favorite part of the room our wing back chairs!! This is what they looked like before.
I am so pleased with the results. I worked with GDC Home and was so pleased with the results. I have to say they have such an impressive fabric selection and everyone there was a huge help. If you need fabric it is wonderful because you can take as many samples as you want and even check the whole bolt of fabric out which is what I did. I had originally thought I wanted a pattern and checking out the bolts helped me to realize in the end I wanted a neutral. I tire of things quickly and with a neutral I can easily switch out the pillows. I decided to jazz up the neutral with brass nailheads for a polished look.
The fabric I choose for the chairs is called Maisey Sea Glass and if one GDC location doesn't have what you are looking for they will call the other or order it for you, simple as that!
This month they are running their Tableware sale and the have some gorgeous pieces. A great time to buy entertaining pieces for the holidays.
The fabric is textured up close which I love. I worked with Quality Upholstery and they did an excellent job for a great price if you need Upholstery work done here.
Lets end with my little foo dogs, I love these guys. They were one of the first things I ever won from entering a blog contest!
