House Tour Continued: The Living Room

I have finally gotten around to taking more pictures of the house! Again, these are semi-befores, as I have put things away and somewhat decorated, but we have not done any remodeling or painting yet.  We can start in the living room. 

Here is the view from the steps that lead upstairs (where we toured before)…

Yes, the room is peach.  No, it is NOT staying this way.  Also, if I may vent, I hate the couch situation.  That is the old floral couch from my “green lounge room” in the old house.  We covered it with a slipcover (horrible idea!) and the ottoman is the red one one from the office covered in a sheet.  This was our way of making a temporary L shaped couch.  Yeah, I hope it doesn’t last long!

Also, I love the curatins, but I think they are getting traded with another room, more on that later!  And sorry to those of you who do not like animals in decor, but this room has a lot of it.  Fiance and I like it 🙂

The walls will soon be a grey.  Also, the empty wall above the teal table has some art…just not hung yet!

Don’t mind the shelf that is in the process of being moved in the last photo! Next is a shot of the entertainment center.  The last owners built this awesome rustic thing and left it.  We had debated doing away with it, as it is very big, but it has grown on us! I think it may pop in a neat way once the walls are painted, so we will keep her for a while!

A shot of some antique keys hanging inside the entertainment center…

The makers of this cabinet hung a spoon handle on the outside as a coat hook. Such a cute idea!

There used to be a stove where the stone wall is.

Here is the view out our red front door…

fSo, what do you think?  Its getting there.  I can’t wait to paint! Stay tuned for the tour of the rest of the downstairs! 🙂
