The new Pate House room by room: Living Room

Up next in our new house tour, our Living Room! One of the things we loved about this house was it had a fireplace, which most in this neighborhood do not, and it was open to the dining room & kitchen.

The view from the dining room table...

From the tv corner (that's our master bedroom straight across)...

From the front door (you can see down the hallway and into Griffins room)...

From our bedroom door...

So it has vaulted ceilings, which makes it feel very big. We decided to paint it a bright green, just to be different and break up all the brown (from the carpet and couch). We have the softest carpet known to man, and I love it. Ha. Mr.Pate bought the couch without me even seeing it, and I love it so much. It's so comfy and soft. Good taste babe :-)

One thing that I was worried about with our move was losing the playroom we had. I just didn't know where we were gonna put all the toys! But we have arrange several of them on these shelves in the living room, and then the rest in Griffins room. It has worked awesome and Griffins been able to grab whatever he needed and just play while we sit comfortably. Win-Win!

We also have created a little area by the front door for bags etc and extra seating. Worked out perfectly.

We have a bookshelf by the fireplace for plenty of reading time. Ps. I love this shelf, and highly recommend it. We got it at Target this past year. Lots of storage and the top let's you display favorites easily.

Mr. Pate added this little seating area on the other side of the fireplace also, which I think works great. We had talked about bringing Griffins table from his room out here, but wanted it in the room for playing. This gives us the best of both worlds.

So that's our living room. We are enjoying it lots!
