Our home: Part I (Main Level)

Hard to believe we've lived in our new house for over a month already. It's high time I took some pictures and shared them with you guys, agree?

I must admit that the reason why it took me this long to share was because I wanted our home to be nicely decorated before the big reveal. But let’s be frank, if I wait until all the rooms look picture perfect, it will be another 5 years before I write this post.

The thing about homes – all the furniture pieces and the way they are decorated – is that they evolve over time, and 5 years down the road, I will be excited to look back at this post and see how far we have traveled.

I am also going to make an effort in blogging more about our home in the future. Our purchases, big or small. Our DIY triumphs and failures. There are a few things that we have done already (such as replacing the hideous light fixture in the breakfast area (wildly successful) or hanging lanterns in Anna’s room (an absolute letdown) or the fact that our garage now looks like a Black & Decker showroom that I didn’t think were significant to write about. But now, I think posts on those projects would have served as a nice reminder of the moments in our life, which is essentially what this blog is all about.

So prepare yourself for more stories on how we are turning this house into a home.

Anyway, without any further ado, I give you our home:

So as you can see, lots of work to be done. The biggie and the most important - paint! The entire house right now is covered in baby yellow and we are less than thrilled.

Next post will include a picture of the exterior.
