Our Home, A Tour: The Front Room

 This room is one of my favorites in the house, it doesn't store toys (with the exception of a few blocks) and is usually picked up: 
The Front Room

This room could also be called the Den but we felt that was a little stuffy for us, so we took to calling it the "front room" because it's a room in the front of the house and the first room you see when you come in the front door. :) (So creative are we...)

Here's what this room looked like soon after we moved into the house: 


After we purchased our new couch, we moved the old love seat into the Front Room - it was a welcome piece of furniture for a mostly bare room and gave the room some purpose. (If you remember the large couch was in horrible shape, but we'll refresh your memory on that front when we tour the Living Room.)
  I also added some family pictures above the couch, you can read about that here if you'd like. 

Currently:  
 With the addition of Michael (thus new pictures for the gallery wall), my new sewing desk and a fun, thrifted side table, the room has come along nicely!

Other than bringing in some more furniture and putting some pictures on the walls - we haven't worked hard at this room at all. The wall color has fit us well and there hasn't been a need for change. :)

I will miss this room, it's where I enjoy my morning coffee and quiet time and where I have spent many relaxing hours sewing. It's a bright and cheerful room - and as Brad has pointed out - it's the first room that the HVAC heats and cools, making it very comfortable. Haha :) 

Next up: Living Room!
