SO for the most part I like the look of most of my home. (ill only show the main rooms) This is what it looks like 95% of the time minus the easter decor and the “greenhouse” growing on my table. Thankfully my husband and I have about the same taste we like classic neutrals with just pops of color. He likes to lean more toward rich reds browns oranges greens so thats pretty much what he designed the house around when he built this place ( i decided to sell and move here) . Which i like but I love teals yellows yellows crisp white and black I also adore animal print!.(he did let us go wild in our daughters room though (hot pink black purple and zebra)
I Just Need a little help with some areas of our home I dont have a clue what to do about! I need budget friendly ideas because the outside projects we be doing & planning have been sucking the money right out of us!
This is our front door and entry way .. I Loath all the pics I see which entry console table or shelves all decorated seaonally or Cubbied Shelves with hooks and with boot trays and benches.. all Functional .. But this is such a small space ? I am uncertain what to do !
I have only 47 inches from open door to the next door frame
And 35 inches from Door to edge of carpet
..NOT ENOUGH SEATING!
When they designed this place they didnt think of where to put a table… I love the big kitchen but … our table is up against the window with one side completely unusuable….
We would love to have dinner parties but … While we have alot of room we have no where to seat people. We have this bar area but its unusable as seating… bc the countertop is flush it doesnt stick out and the other side is cabinets and the kitchen Island is the same way
(this bar area usually acts as my space to seaonally decorate because I dont know what else to do with it because you can see whatever you put there on both sides.
Looking into the kitchen this is just off form the front door.
Anyone Have Seating Solutions?
MESSY FRIDGE used and “organization” this seems to be the catch all in our house… art work… appointment reminders.. school stuff we use daily like spelling words weekly flyers math facts etc… If we dont see it in this house WE DONT REMEMBER IT!
I would like to find a pretty alternative to make my fridge less chaotic but still keep everything I need in one place and in sight. (it doenst necessrily have to be on the fridge either)
Living Room Arrangement…. This all it ever looks like. .. there is only 2 useable walls … the 3rd wall has the 2 long windows.. ( would love to be able to put that Antique table(shown in 1st pic group against a wall)
Other side of the living Room
OUR BEDROOM (you might have read my other post about “frank” the hideous falling apart 30 + year old chair used as a computer chair in our bedroom that husband was attached to and refused to part with then finally said if he has to go he wants a loveseat in there!) HE IS GONE! BUT…… he got replaced with a loveseat (which was in great shape for only $20 but is huge and doesnt match anything) BUT In my mind still a MAJOR inprovement
THIS IS MY LEAST FAVORITE ROOM IN THE HOUSE IT DOESNT FEEL WARM AND COZY TO ME IT JUST FEEL BLAH! SO BUDGET FRIENDLY IDEAS PLEASE! That will work with what we have orr.. change but go with the wall colors.
We have a huge bedroom but we also have a huge bed and lots of different pieces of furniture which pretty much limits us with the setup we have now as far as bed placement. None of the furniture matches but We dont have money for new furniture Or a headboard right now. The Computer has to stay bc of only place in house with reliable connection ( hubby wont downsize to a computer chair .. bc of comfort) An hubby says TV Is a must!
Vaccum is not usually in there sorry…. and gonan do away with the shelf of open junk to the right there
