The Heart of our Home

   I'm very excited to be doing my first post and I took a lot of pictures to show all of you. This is our family room where we spend most of our time. When we bought our house it was 2 years old that was 8 years ago! How time flies! We made a lot of changes along the way,one of the big changes in this room was taking up the carpeting and adding hard wood floors. The color is Brazilian Koa by Bellawood Flooring.






 Still looking for the right piece of art work to hang over the chair
           This was a pine cabinet that I painted red and then distressed
                                                                  
                     



Now on to the kitchen. Some of the changes in here was adding the tile backsplash and granite counters. We also changed out all the white appliances to stainless steel.
                                                     
                                      Looking in from the breakfast area


                              We also changed out all the knobs to these brushed nickel pulls which I love      
       The island will be going through some changes in the near future

                                                  




I hope you enjoyed the tour and would love to here your comments!
I'm linking to Debbiedoos Newbie Linkie Party

So many pretty things to see. Your kitchen is wonderful. I know it must be a pleasure for your family.

TV cabinets and all the connections and stuff that goes with it is a problem for most of us. You have solved it at your house. It all looks so neat and isn't the center of attention in your family room.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

I thought it would be fun to look at various bloggers' first posts. Love that tin holding your wooden spoons. I pinned it!

I just found your blog...so I started from the beginning. Can't get over how similar our kitchens are. I have the same type of shelves on the ends of our cabinets...always changing things out on them! And our granite countertops are almost identical. Your home is lovely!
