A Place to Gather, a Place to Play, a Place to Grow.....
The Living Room
The Living Room features a beautiful picture window that faces the street and currently has two custom made Levelor Blinds and soft white lace curtains. (Both will stay with the house).
Above the window is a ledge of "bragging shelves", this is where we kept our family photos and the like... you might keep family photos, or plants or trophies... or pictures of your trophy-wife. Whatever you put up there, it'll look cute.
Under the window features an addition we made in 2008, the very hub of entertaining: The Window Seats. BUT -hold on, they are also two GIANT boxes with lovely lids that can house your DVD collection, mountains of toys or whatevers your fancy. They are currently covered by a foam pad with black and white twall fabric which can stay if you like. (there is also several yards of that same fabric inside the window seat which I will leave behind).
The corner nearest the door features a BILLY Ikea book shelf purchased in 2011 that will stay with the home. That's a funky wee corner, and after years of pushing around furniture, we found that a book case rounded out the room nicely and makes great use of the space. IKEA still makes these book shelves and you can purchase doors for it if you like, the link for that is HERE.
The room also features recessed (sp?) lighting that is on two different dimmers.
This is a wonderful room, and the way we configured it, we have held several large parties with enough seating for everyone. Our son likes to use the bench seat to the most to battle out his superhero's and his Little People. He's spent hundreds of hours facing the window playing and playing.......if I close my eyes I can still see him standing there now. (but clearly, we'll be taking him with us when we move. :)
The bench seating and hutch were custom built for me by a wonderful client who is a cabinet maker. We get TONS of compliments on them by just about everyone who comes to our home - because they are really well done and very welcoming.
The walls are painted in Divine Paint - GRAIN. The trim is Divine - ICING. The house/living room is currently wired for FIOS/Frontier/Verizon internet and cable TV.
