How was your weekend? I worked for a good part of the weekend (boo), but we got away today to go to some open houses. Nothing we loved, but at least got a feel for some things that are out there.
In the last installment of the home tour, I shared our kitchen. Next up is the living room, which will round out the rooms on the second floor (besides the powder room, which I am guessing you don't mind skipping over).
This is the view to the right as you come up the stairs. Our living room is open to the dining room.
You can read the details of the wallpapered bookshelves here. I didn't really think about it when we first bought the house, but I really love having the built-ins. Accessorizing them is a constant work in progress, but it's fun.
We completely redid the fireplace when we first moved in. It was seriously awful. Looking at it now, you would never know that at one point it was covered with ugly brown tile. And the ottomans are the solsta footstools (now on sale for $14.99) from Ikea that my mother-in-law recovered for us. You can read about that transformation here.
The color of the walls is Behr Country Club. As you can see, it totally changes color depending on the light.
You can see better shots of my Cocoa & Hearts painting in this post. I also recently got these Dwell Studio pillows from Joss & Main for the couch. Riley is helping me model them . . . such a ham.
I used to have a fabric covered canvas over on the wall where the frames are now, but I was in the mood for a little something different and thought it was a good opportunity to display some art that's been sitting in the closet. And speaking of hams, look at Zoey over there on the stairs.
Most of the art came from etsy, but a couple of them came from Homegoods and a local resale shop.
Next up will be the third floor! Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!
