Several of you have asked for more pictures of the house and so instead of more outside pictures, we thought we'd show some inside. Most of the decluttering was done earlier this year after we sold the house in town and moved to the apartment. When we complete a room, or at least feel that one is more or less completed, we'll take pictures and give everyone a virtual tour.
A few months back (for those that may have missed it) we gave a virtual tour of the guest bedroom, you can see that by CLICKING HERE.
And now, here are some more pictures of,
THE LIVING ROOM:
|Farm living room|
This is standing in the kitchen doorway looking into the living room. It's small but comfortable. Of course, the whole house is small but comfortable, but I digress ha. Full size couch, small stand with drawers on the end to store stuff in. The coffee table we were able to repurpose from the house in town, it fit perfectly. That long white curtain you see is the doorway to the foyer and desk area. More on that when it's ready for its closeup.
Now I'm standing in the corner foyer entry by the white curtain I just mentioned in the previous picture. This is looking back toward the kitchen (where I was standing to take the first photo, ha). You can see the loveseat that matches the larger couch. It's pretty much all the sitting furniture that we have room for but it's comfortable for us and that's all that matters.
This is what we call our "farm library" ha.
This was taken while standing by the corner where the couch and loveseat meet. The two bookcases on the left? Those are all COOKING related books. The one bookcase on the right? Those are all GARDENING/FARM books. Yep, we have a lot of books. The green stand with the lamp on it is actually a birdcage, my Mom found it at a thrift store once and I put it in storage. We don't have birds but it fit that spot perfectly so that's where it will stay. Up top, we have baskets for storage (always important in a small house) and in the corner, a small but powerful stereo for music and, since we don't have a TV at the farm, we have a satellite radio for lots of music choices and news/weather.
Now this photo was taken while standing in the corner by the three bookcases looking back toward the other corner of the living room. We have a matching end table in the corner (also re-purposed from the move). The windows are to the front porch (more on that in a bit). The yellow pillows and yellow rug under the coffee table are what we bought when the realtor had us stage our house in town. We bought with the idea that it would serve dual purpose by going to the farm afterward and adding some pops of color.
Yellow is a happy color for sure!
This is a closeup of the corner where I started the photo tour. We wanted you to see the "doors". These are the curtain doors we put up a couple of seasons ago, CLICK HERE to read about that. The one on the right goes into the master bedroom and the one on the left goes right into the kitchen. They are nice for closing off rooms for privacy, for keeping rooms hot/cold, and to just give a more cozy feeling. It's nice to close them off, and just sit on the couch and read a book. Side note, that clock is an heirloom from 2nd Man's family, and that painting was done by "Ma" who we bought the house from.
Thought this was a fun picture, the couch is on the wall of the porch and on the other side of those windows are the two rockers we sit on while on the porch. Couch on the inside, rocking chairs on the outside. It's nice because we can open the windows and hear the music while on the porch.
Thank you for visiting! As the pillow says, welcome to the farm!
Hope you enjoyed the mini-tour.
Don't forget, today is "Cyber Monday".
