My Two Favorite Spaces
|As I mentioned a few days ago, the beautiful Ilva has made a request to see pictures of our kitchens. I am only too happy to oblige as I heart my lil kitchen to bits. :D|
This is my kitchen's west wall looking out to our backyard. When we first moved in, I hired my friend, Beth, to paint a few rooms in my house - and the kitchen and dining area were the first two she hit. I wanted a Tuscan feeling - mainly the look of plaster chipping off a brick wall with the brick peeking through. I also wanted lots of curly whimsical vines and grapes. She gave it all to me and I was very pleased with the results. =) Below are just some different views:
The east wall - the fridge is now barely noticeable as the front and sides are pretty much covered up by pictures of my nieces and nephews!
This angle just shows that my kitchen opens up into my living room.
And this picture is my living room looking into the dining area - which seems to be the only picture I took of the dining area. If you look on top of the bookshelf you'll see a picture of Chloe when she was a puppy - she use to literally fall asleep in her water bowl. hee!
Below are pictures of my office - my 2nd most favorite place in my house =)
The office has a nautical theme and Beth painted the walls to look like wood planks. Yes, you don't see much blue wood around, but I saw a picture of a room with blue wood walls so I hadda have it. :D This is my desk, btw. If you look closely at my monitor, you will see a picture on my desktop of a breathtaking view of an italian hillside. This picture was taken by Ilva many months ago (back when this picture of my office was taken) and I fell in love with it so much that I made it into my wallpaper so I could look at it alla time.
This is Hubbs' tiny lil desk, with my old Gateway PC - that he uses to play online poker and read up on where the good fishin' is happenin'. hee!
So there you have it.. the 2 spaces where I spend all my time. Now it's your turn! Show us yours! :D
Whoops! I forgot to include the e-mail address - so please send your permalink to Ilva so she can add it to the round up! =)
