Come On In--Our Living Room!

Happy Tuesday!

I am starting a new series today and my hope is to share a room of our house over the next several weeks.  I love getting ideas from other posts just like this!

 I don't have any set schedule so if you'd like to see something, let me know!

We have lived in our house for about a year and a half and previously lived in a finished apartment inside of Gavin's shop for 5 years.  It was fully finished and furnished so we certainly weren't "roughing it" but his office was right outside our living room door and his employees showed up at 7am.  Our kitchen was also a show room on the main level, detached from the rest of our living space.  To say that we were excited for our house to be completed is an understatement.

Come on in...to our living room!

We designed our entire house around this one area and love how it all turned out.  I'm not sure we have anything that we would change at this point.  Our floor plan is very open so 99% of our time is spent in this room and the kitchen.

I also took pictures as my kids were playing... so you can play a little I Spy. :-)
Santa brought the plastic playhouse and kitchen for our kids this Christmas and I had full intentions of it moving quickly to the basement.  But....they seriously play in it every single day, all day long so it is just staying put until summer.  I am shocked at how entertained it keeps all three of them.  Our house is very "lived in" so there are toys that line our walls and bookshelves that no longer hold books or decor, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  
On each side of our fireplace, we have built in shelves.  Every thing on each side is just a hodge podge of things I have collected for several years.  I get almost all of my floral arrangements and greenery from a local boutique.  The baskets on the bottom of each side though are full of diggers and farm equipment.  

I tried to get a picture looking out from our kitchen into the living room but with all of the dang snow out there this was about as light as I could get it.  There is one more window up top that I apparently cut out.
This picture is standing up by the fire place.  The kitchen is to the left and windows on the right.
Our dining room table.  :-)  A friend of a friend found the shutters for me and my grandpa painted them.  He also spray painted the Gather sign that I found on Etsy.
And standing back by the dining room table looking into the kitchen!

There you have it! :-)

If you have any questions on where something is from, let me know and I will do my best to find a link or let you know who made it.

I'll be back next week to share another room!
