do you know where i haven't taken you in a while?
why haven't i shown any pictures of the front room in so long? well...we haven't done much in there. but -- unless you keep up with me on instagram -- it probably looks a lot different than you're expecting.
this is how the room was staged on our house tour:
the first thing we did upon moving in was let in the light:
please excuse the mess -- that was less than a month after we moved in.
then, i painted the room one shade lighter, just for fun:
next, i hung some spirographs:
we got new windows...
i repainted the trim too, in case you were wondering...
the front room sat empty.
the last time we spoke, it looked like this:
it remained a large, empty room for a few months ((much to K's delight!))...until we bought a new sofa for the sunroom. instead of getting rid of the old leather couch and loveseat that were originally in the sunroom, we moved them to the front room...along with a couple of other things:
p.s. i dusted my spirographs and now they're all slightly crooked -- argh!
this works...for now.
my favorite items in the room are these pheasant tail feathers and a vintage wooden test tube rack i bought (separately) on etsy:
the etsy seller specifically stated no birds were harmed when collecting the feathers.
later down the road, i think i want to arrange a chaise and two armchairs in here, as so:
you can check out the sources of my inspiration pieces on this pinboard!
i'm not quite positive of the layout yet...and looking at this set-up kinda makes me want to paint the spirograph frames gold...hmmm...
