An In Progress Home Tour: The Front Sitting Room

Today I am continuing with my "In Progress" home tour! This time I am sharing our front sitting room. It's the room that looks pretty, but isn't very useful. There is a really nice sleeper sofa, but we haven't used it all that much.  We will need to paint the room (the color is not super flattering in person), add some side tables and better lighting. I also may want to add a family photo to the empty frame in the corner :) The animal head is there for now, but will be switched out with a more substantial piece of artwork when we stumble upon something we like.  These were the best photos I could take as the lighting is a bit tricky in this room!

An In Progress Home Tour: The Great Room

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I am back today with a tour of our Great Room. We spend lots of time in here and it is open to our kitchen and dining area. It gets tons of natural light and it is in a 2 story space with windows along one entire wall.
 As you can see from the first photo, our rug is WAY too small in the large space. I love the rug and when we moved in we just wanted to use what we had and find things we love to fill the space along the way. I am one who has a very hard time picking rugs and I certainly do not want to chose one just to make due. So, in the mean time, this Pottery Barn Kids rug will have to make do! We also will eventually need a new sofa, as this one is too deep for the space. But, it is the best couch and we have two young kids. So, a new sofa will not be for a few years :)

An In Progress House Tour: Back Patio








Happy Friday everyone! Here's another peek at our home, this time the back patio! I still need to find a bunch of outdoor pillows to add some color and pattern and some more flowers too. I love our new outdoor set (we still need to add two more chairs) from Target from the Threshold collection.  It's been very popular so your only real chance of locating it may be in your local store.
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week with more of our home!
