House Tour: The Front Rooms

March 10, 2014

Hello, friends! We’ve had quite an exciting weekend, moving into our new house. I know some of you saw my updates on Instagram! (Thank you for all your sweet comments!) Oh, moving. My goodness, I forgot how many boxes there were. It felt so good to see all of our stuff again though. (When we moved out of our house, we put everything in Pods while we lived with Allen’s parents and house hunted.) It was a great weekend, as far as moving goes. We had lots of family here to help and a few friends stop by to say hi. I’m so excited to show you all the house, so I thought I’d break it up into 5 posts for this week. First up, the first two rooms when you walk in the front door.

The house was built in 1905 and the long entry hall that the house is built around is quite a sight. When you first walk in the door, there are two rooms to the right and left. One will be the family room and one will be the formal dining room. I’m super excited about having a formal dining room, since the dining room in our first house was a small, open area between kitchen and family room.

The floors are just to die for. Old and creaky and warped and fabulous. Can you imagine how many people have walked on these floors? It gives me chills just thinking about it.

This will be the family room. There are two windows, a great fireplace and a little closet.

The baseboards and mouldings are so chunky and fabulous.

Fireplace details. I do love a painted brick fireplace.

This view is from the corner of the family room looking into the hall and formal dining room.

In the dining room, there’s another great fireplace with a custom mantle. These two rooms are mirror images of each other, minus the closet. Dinner parties, here we come!

I can’t wait to live in these rooms and make them our own. They already feel cozy and homey. I think that’s a good sign. Tomorrow we’ll tour the rest of the hall and the bedrooms. Yay!
