Our House...in the Middle of the Street

And it actually kind of is in the middle of our street...what a coincidence that a great song by Madness would foretell my future??
Anyway, so we finally have some pictures to show. We haven't hung anything on the walls yet, and one room is still full of boxes of books that need to be put away (Mark!), but hopefully this will give you an idea of the place, if you're interested! We still have a few things we want to add, but I think there will always be a list of things we want to add, change etc.

Please enjoy!

The front of the house (obviously). Mark is taking great pride in his lawn and all of the maintenance that comes with it. He is adapting to life as an 80 year old man very well.




The "dining room" - it and the kitchen are joined, so I don't know if it is an official dining room, but it is where we eat. I am happy to say no meals have been eaten on the couch since we moved in! The kitchen over on this side... that would be were we cook.
More kitchen.
The living room. The wall behind the TV has a nice lovely square cut out of it - we are
trying to decide what to put there that won't be too heavy and crash down in the closet below! I'll post an updated picture of this room in November when the real curtains arrive - these are just place holders!
And this is the foyer. We bought this bench because I love it, but it might be a little too big for the space, so we may end up moving it elsewhere.
I didn't put up the bathrooms and bedrooms, because some of them are rather blah and boring, and others we just couldn't get a decent picture because of doorway angles and such, but who wants to look at bathrooms? Believe me, ours are nothing to brag about, no jetted tub, or italian marble going on. As for the bedroom, well it still looks like someone going to college lives in it because we don't have "grown up" bedroom furniture. That's next years purchase!!
Hope you enjoyed a little peek into our home.

Love your house and love your choice of furnishings. All very "grown up" compared to our Target furniture. Congratulations!

What a beautiful home! Maybe we'll have to try to come and see it in person sometime. Sometime in the far future when money grows on trees. :)

Mel, I love, love love everything about your house! It is so nice! And I am totally digging your furniture! You have such great taste! I need to come and see it in real life! And I must say, the very first thing I though when I saw the first picture, even before I read any of your blog was how nice the lawn looked. Maybe your hubby can give my hubby some lessons.

Love the dining room table. Love the bench (I don't think it's too big for the space, but as a NYer, my only requirement in order to consider something not "too big for the space" is whether it will physically fit there; aesthetics don't necessarily concern me). Love everything else. What a cute place!

Looks great, and it does make me a little jealous to still be an apartment dweller...sigh! :)

Wow.. that's just a dream to me.. a house?! Actually, I'm perfectly content in our one bedroom apartment, with our baby in the crib next to us in our bed, packed to the gills- with piles of stuff all over because there is no place to put it... hmmm. But at least I don't have to mow a lawn in the summer or shovel a walk in the winter! Enjoy your multi-level house! It looks great!

Your house. In the almost middle of the street. Is awesome. It looks like such a treat. (are you singing it?)
I love love your kitchen. Isn't it awesome not to eat on your couch anymore? I still feel fancy eating at our table.
It looks lovely and you guys (you) did an awesome job with the decor. Sweeeet!
