Our family room comes right off our kitchen. They're definitely the two rooms that will always remain the heart of the home (and truly what sold us on the home in the first place). We have a few more things we still need to do in here, but since we did buy new furniture, I thought I'd show you the current set up.
These are the comfy oversized chairs with matching ottoman. The are in the bay window that overlooks the deck and the back yard.
This is one of the two walls that goes into the kitchen. The map is a nautical chart of Little Traverse Bay that we had framed (one of our favorite pieces). Once puddin arrives, the pack and play will more than likely end up in that corner. You can also see the pocket doors that divide the kitchen from the family room.
Our couch (with the prime spot being taken up by Junie!) and a bit of the fireplace wall. The mantle is not finished yet, so no good pictures to show. We have a coffee table that I cut off, but it sits nicely in the area in front of the couch.
Things we have yet to do in here: varnish the armoire that goes on the other wall that attaches the kitchen to the family room, paint the fireplace screen from the current gold to black, figure out what we are going to do on the top of the mantle besides the few silver candlesticks that are already there, hang the oar (from the rowing club at Yale- B's Grandfather's) on the soffett above the bay window (where the red chairs are), and decide which artwork to hang behind the couch. Most of that is just easy cosmetics, so we're sure it can be completed before the beginning of March (our deadline on our spreadsheet).
