So Karen and I realized we’ve lived here just about five weeks. We are finally getting things sort of settled, though there’s still some wallpaper border to remove and definitely painting to be done. I took a little tour of the house, snapping shots as I went, so that we could share what the place is looking like now. Keep in mind… the dots in the office are going, as is the wallpaper border in the dining room, as is the color in the media room and the spare bedroom. We have a few more things to hang on the walls… including a tryptic we just ordered of a shot I took of Chicago that’s going to hang down in the media room. Can’t wait to get that baby. Will be cool. Obviously we haven’t hung anything up in the office or the spare bedroom either, again due to the fact that we haven’t painted anything yet.
Uh, the picture quality isn’t the best… I was doing this on the fly and not really paying attention. My honey will hate that the bed isn’t fully made in the bedroom photos and that there are blankets thrown about down in the media room as well as in the living room, but hey… this is how we live most of the time.
Our yard is fantastic. Pretty big. We like it. Our garage, which I didn’t shoot at all, is about a car and a half. Plenty of room for the car and for tools, storage, and such. I’ll shoot that next time I make some rounds. I also didn’t shoot the side yard, street side, that’s beautiful. Oh well… looks like I left a few things out. Next time…
Martin called our style bohemian. We like it. He’s right. We don’t like any particular style. We like what we like and buy what we like and somehow it all fits together.
When and as things get painted and wallpaper gets removed I will take more photos. You know, when the house is completely done. I’ll try to make those more house beautiful. For now… this is it… our place in Illinois.
