Today is everyone's favourite topic, House Tours! I love poking around other's houses to see their decorating styles. I wouldn't say I have a style, rather we are looking for simplicity and comfort. Someday when we don't have to pay for daycare and when I'm not working full time, maybe I will actually hire an interior designer or try replicating what I like in the magazines, but for now, this is our humble home.
A quick note about these photos. My house was not photo ready so I considered just using last year's post, but we have had a few changes since then, so I tidied up, snapped some photos with my iPhone, and used a few photos from last year where nothing has changed in that space. I also considered taking photos of the house without tidying but I couldn't bring myself to do it. #smokeandmirrors
To begin we got a new front door and windows, an upgrade from the 1928 originals but keeping the same style. Insulated glass, what a treat! :)
New windows in the front room. Bad lighting, but you get the idea.
The blue chair is up in Q's room now
New fireplace on the right. Baby toys and high chair are also new additions.
New TV on the wall
E's room. We took his old dresser for Q and bought him a new taller one. His stuffy collection is growing, partially my fault, but grandparents take note, we don't need any more stuffies!)
Q's room. These were taken before he arrived, nothing much has changed here except for the new window, there are more toys, and the crib has been lowered.
Our Rome painting found a new home upstairs
New stairs leading down to the basement
Our guest room
Playroom/Dave's office. The drawers are filled with toys, art supplies, board games, and puzzles.
Dave's desk that moves up and down so he can stand or sit.
