Next room on the house tour is the living room. I stayed with the same color scheme as our bedroom- soft blues, shades of brown and cream, with touches of white and gold. It's simple, cozy, and a little bit feminine (sorry Doug :) We love this house so much more than our last. It's really open and has lots of natural light. I'm in love with these gorgeous French doors. Now that we're all settled in, I'm not so frustrated that we had to move for no reason :)
One thing I'm really looking forward to is buying a house and settling down somewhere. The second that happens, we're buying a new couch. I've had my eye set on this one for a while! So while you look through these pictures, just imagine this little baby in the room instead :)

I really love how this little corner turned out. I had the hardest time finding a console table that didn't have a bottom shelf, because this was basically the only place we could put Maisy's food bowls. So I ended up getting a vanity table from Bed Bath & Beyond, and I LOVE it. Then I needed to upgrade the plastic storage container we were using for Maisy's food bin, since we didn't have closet space for it. After another long hunt, I finally found one online that fit the space perfectly. (I'm too lazy to go back and find the link...but if you're interested, let me know and I'll find it for you :)
I have big makeover plans for our table and chairs, but it's so big of a project that it just intimidates me. Hopefully I'll work up the nerve soon, because it will awesome if I ever make myself do it.
