Our new house -- some pictures

Mom added the side plants. The cable cable is buried now. Bonus to having a TINY lot? The HOA mows the grass!

Walking in the front door then from the living room back into the dining room.


The guest room on the first floor.

Coming in from the garage to the kitchen.


Back porch

The play room in all it's played-in glory at the top of the steps on the second floor.

Second floor laundry.

Kids' rooms are a work in progress because (1) no pictures are up and (2) both have rocking chairs in them which will probably come out soon.

Leo's room

Olivia's room with her new bed that was mine thirty years ago.

  5. What a beautiful new home! The interior looks so luxurious. The ivory walls add up to the elegance, and your chosen sets of furniture complements the overall design of the house. I'm sure Olivia and Leo will love their new home. Thanks for sharing that! All the best! :)

  6. Congratulations on your new house! It looks awesome. Great job on the interior, which is simple yet well-designed. The plants that your mom added are really a great bonus. Anyway, Olivia’s bed looks like it’s still in great condition, considering the fact that it belonged to you 30 years ago. Thanks for giving us a little tour, Christine! All the best to you and your family!
