Theme Thursday: Rooms

Joining Cari for Some photo fun.
It's been a year since we've move in to this house and I still don't have much decor going on. How long can one use the phrase "We just moved in so..."? I think the first 5 years. Your thoughts?
One day last April (2012), Robert came home to our then, cozy, two bedroom, one bath, old as all get out - still has a coal stack in the cement-block,. damp basement, and said the dreaded "That's it! We're moving. And before the baby comes". Whom we were expecting mid August.
With that, the search was on. We found this house and moved in two weeks before the birth of our son. Goodbye house that made my husband and baby girl sick All. The. Time. Hello, new, beautiful house. So warm and inviting. With room to grow and you don't make anyone sick.
Thanks for a new lease on life. 
Have any decorating ideas. Shoot them my way. 
 Family room into the kitchen. Before Robert's destruction during dinner. That's when the kitchen reminds me of a scene out of the Sixth Sense, where all the cabinet doors are open in a blink of an eye.
Kitchen into the family room. During nap time when the living quarters are still intact... until post nap.
A serene and tranquil space waiting to be occupied by proper entertaining furnishings.

Anne said the house is very warm and maybe some cool tones will help with that. I would like to paint the walls grey, eventually. I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of money when the walls were freshly painted before we moved in. Any ideas are more than welcome in the decor arena.

  1. Well, I can't help you with the decor, but I do like how big and open your new house looks! So inviting! Glad the new place doesn't make anyone sick, either. That's a huge score!

  2. How your paint has stayed fresh after 2 months is a mystery to me. I'm constantly on the lookout for a paint color called "grubby"- it would hide everything beautifully.

  3. I also love how open your floor plan is. And watch the end of summer sales for good furniture for your serene entertainment space! It's like they just give it away sometimes.

  4. Ideas? Your house is gorgeous, leave it until you can't stand it anymore!
