Due to several requests and no cable, here is my project for the night-- displaying our home on my blog. It feels more and more like home/bed bath and beyond, and less like an old moldy city home. We both love being at home.
oh, and p.s. I am not a decorator, so any hints would be helpful.
This is our lovely-very Pittsburgh, home. We live on the first floor. We have upstairs neighbors that are russian--sometimes they fight (well the wife yells at the husband) and we can almost hear EVERY word, but it's all in russian, so Sean and I make up what they are fighting about.
Standing on our front porch looking to the left. This is a typical Pittsburgh neighborhood- old, tall, brick homes packed tightly together.
Do you like Sean's pull-up bar? That was one of the first things we had to find a place for, but sadly, it was one of the last items to be hung.
Our looonnnggg bathroom.
The end of the bathroom
Our free couch, lovely quilt and soft rug (all wonderful gifts we were given), make our living room feel like home and less like an old Pittsburgh house.
One of my favorite bridal shower gifts-- F-A-M-I-L-Y from my sisters and mom, fits nicely on top of our door to the office/guest room/unorganized storage space. While Sean's dad, Bruce, and uncle, Collin, were out in Pittsburgh they helped put our place together-- it was such a help and we were happy to see them here in Pittsburgh, and sad to see them go.
The pictures on that wall are all going to be different family photos. The empty frame is supposed to have my family picture(that we took at Christmas) in it, but it hasn't arrived yet. We hope to make that wall a big collage of pictures. Looks like we will have to putty it up when we move. The burnt orange chair is also a free gift. I know the color isn't the greatest, but it is very comfortable to sit in.
I promise our bedding isn't that shiny. Sean still feels like a man when he sleeps at night.
The bed was set up against the wall with windows. We enjoyed how it made the room feel, but I couldn't blocking the windows- I love having a bright room, and it was blocking some of the light.
Yes, Sean and I like to do puzzles... that is one stuffed under our bed.
