The Grand Tour Part One–Downstairs

Welcome to our home! house (562x427) I have loved decorating our new house.  My Favorite room is definitely the family room.  Probably because it’s all new décor.  I did the whole thing for right around $500 bucks.  Pretty good if you ask me.  My vision was functional, rustic elegance.  Functional in that I had to have storage and space for toys and play, while still keeping the room nice and elegant. I feel like I succeeded.

LOVE!!! I especially like that dinning room rug- I don't think I had ever seen that before. I also like the photos you have in your front entry, love the boys at the beach and them all bundled on your lap. Love the statement chair and the desk corner of the family room. The lighting and appliances look so nice too!

What a BEAUTIFUL house!! You did such a great job! The day that I actually live in a house will you come decorate it for me?! Love ya!

I can't believe you live in that great, big single family house! Such an upgrade.

Great job! Love the wall decals. Fun way to change a room. Love the chair. Maybe 2 miracles will happen and both (total 3) of our chairs will stay perfect? Love all your blue bins. Great organization. Oh that gold Ryan face! I forget about that...

Love the big window doors and pretty flowers! Where did those come from? Your desk and desk chair are great. And that cute little rocker is fabulous! What color was it originally?

Your kitchen looks so big and clean! I'm w/ Lisa... new dining rug?

Can't believe you already have the beach picture framed. Fast work sister!

Can't wait to come visit!

Love the new place. You've done such a good job accessorizing too. Great desk chair. See you kept the canvas...good choice. It looks so bright and clean and fresh. I hope someday I can come visit.

5ofsauGoal-functional rustic elegance- MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Everything looks so great. I love how the trees turned out. I am glad you pushed ahead with that vision. The canvas over the desk is beautiful. I forgot you ordered the kids table, its looks good in the kitchen. I vote you go back to Pier 1 and get the blue velvet chair pad, sorry the IKEA one didn't work. The desk is probably my favorite thing in the room, probably because we "gave birth" to it. I am looking forward to house tour part 2!
