Come on in!
After the jump you can see pictures of all of the rooms in our house except for the two bedrooms. There are some projects in process. I will also include paint colors, where we got furniture and accessories from as well as other useful information.
We live on the far north side of Chicago on the third floor of a six flat building built in 1908. Man, do I love our place.
|To your left, our living room.|
|To your right, the long hallway.|
Here is the view from the couch. My dad built a window seat in the bay window (with our help). It is by far my favorite upgrade we have made so far.
The table is from my childhood home. I love it so much. Chauncy really loves to find a sunny spot in the living room and lounge all day.
This is what you see if you are sitting at the table. The big mirror is from Ikea, the couch from some "value" furniture place. I can't say that I love it, but it works for now. I'm not ready to own a classy, expensive couch quite yet.
here. I got almost all of the accessories and containers from the Kane County Flea Market from my favorite stand, "The Pyrex Lady". We are BFF's. Probably because I am her best customer.
World Market. They were our first big purchase for our place and we got everything for over 50% off! The bar is from CB2 as a wedding present from Mike's parents.
This space here and the big deck we will get to in a moment helped sell me on the house. I love this built in hutch. Behind the wall in the dining room is also exposed brick! On our list of projects to do is tearing down the plaster wall in the dining room to get some exposed brick happening soon.
Last, but not least, here is our deck. Arguably my favorite part of our place. It needs some love, but it's so fantastic to have a big outdoor space. You don't usually find decks this big in a six-flat in the city.
So, that's our crib. The only things you haven't see are the laundry room, our bedroom, the second bedroom/office area, and the three closets. All in good time, my friend.
I will work on adding the list of paint colors for your reference.
