a little house tour

ACHOOOO!

excuse me! I’m allergic to dust and man oh my is this website dusty!!!

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I left you with an “EXTERIOR PHOTOS ONLY” cliff-hanger! My apologies friends! As you can imagine Jason and I have been pretty busy over here (in Jackson now) getting settled into the new house. I actually wrote the majority of this follow-up post the same day I wrote the last post and it was scheduled for the very next day… then I just procrastinated 6 weeks on adding the actual pictures. whoops.

that being said, here’s the post:

I’m hoping to find the time to pop back over here as frequently as I used to now that things are settling down. It’s been a pretty busy summer full of work, travel, a tiny (but fortunately very short lived) employment search, and of course the new house + move. It’s made me so sad to have been neglecting some of my sweet clients but now I’m finding myself taking some deep breaths and enjoying that glorious light that I can see peeking out at the end of the tunnel. I can’t wait to get back to a serene and luxurious master bedroom project and a chic glam dining room makeover all from my very own drafting table in my very own house!

Anyway, enough ramble, how about some interior photos, yeah?!…

(all of these photos were taken BEFORE we moved in)

 From the front door you walk into this lovely entryway. All the woodwork is absolutely stunning but we’re going to need to finish some of the baseboards and the staircase, all of which are a little beaten up. I’d love to see a banded jute or sisal runner on those stairs! Not exactly sure how I feel about that tile… but it’s fine for now.

Here’s our living room. It’s massive at about 25′ x 15′! It’ll take a whole lot of furniture to finish this room, and like most rooms in our house it will stay empty for a while. For now, I’ll just keep dreaming of some mirrored comfy sofas in front of that fireplace and perhaps a baby grand piano in the corner? Just past the living room is the foyer (pictured above) and past the foyer is the dining room.

Directly behind the living room is the den (or library) it’s still a bit of a schizophrenic room as we’re never sure what to call it. This will be the first room we’ll furnish – with just about every piece of furniture that we own from our previous tiny apartment.

We have a pretty large kitchen behind the formal dining room. It’s pretty dated so I think we’ll be doing an inexpensive cosmetic overhaul in here first. Oh and that grout… it’s supposed to be light gray. gross.

We also have a lovely 1970’s trash compactor available if anyone’s interested… 🙂

our upstairs hall is one of my favorite places in the house. it’s so light and open!

i can’t get enough of the view from that window.

upstairs, the east side of the house (pictured above) holds 3 bedrooms. that’s the master on the right and there are 2 more bedrooms through that mini hallway there on the left… one of which would be perfect for a nursery 🙂

 on the west side of the second floor there’s a 4th bedroom, and 2nd bathroom and a laundry room. I must have forgotten to get “before we move  in” photos of those 2 rooms.

This is the master… those 4 windows let in lots of gorgeous light!

you walk though a small dressing room/closet off the master bedroom to enter the *peach* master bathroom

man that’s peach.

I’ve got plans for this master bathroom though (plans that involved making the peach my friend for about 10-15 years until we can actually afford to gut the pink tiles and start over)… we’ll see if I can get Jason to play along.

on the other side of the pink bathroom is the green (guest) bathroom. This bathroom doesn’t offend me as much. The 2 upstairs bathrooms are mirror images of each other at exactly the same size but because the doors are in different places, this bathroom just seems so much bigger to me.

That’s all for now, but as you can see, we have our hands full with this place and we have A LOT of projects in the works! Projects that somehow put me into a spin of 6 week silence… the good news is, there’s a ton of great blog material happening behind the scenes here so stay tuned!

In the meantime, any advice for us new homeowners? Do you have an ever-growing, never-ending list of projects? – we’d love to know how you prioritize and handle it!
