House Tour – Come On In!

Shouldn’t every house tour begin at the front door? My granddaughters, Miss M and Miss K say, “Hey!  So glad you’re here!  Come on in!”.     I really like and enjoy the spaciousness of this foyer.   The chest is a perfect spot for creating seasonal vignettes.     I like that I have […]

House Tour – The Living Room

Our living room is located to the right of the foyer as you enter the front door.  It isn’t an overly large room – roughly 12′ x 14′. I used a pair of bookcases to create a focal point on the first wall that you see. Love the sunlight streaming in and the shadows that […]

House Tour – The Office

Our office is located on the main floor of the house and gets quite a bit of use. It isn’t a very big room – roughly 12′ x 12′.  The file cabinet and a couple of chairs sit directly across from the front of the desk.  I still want to make a couple of pillows […]

Remodeled Beach Condo Tour – Part II
