Our first home

Ladies, I have been talking about giving you a tour of our home for months now and I am finally ready!
I set it up so that it the pictures would progress as if you were actually going on a tour of our home. The pictures were taken at night and on my iPhone so they aren't amazing but they will do.

The view of our kitchen when you come in our front door.
living room to the right of our door
another view
my typical view when I am blogging

view from the hallway
another kitchen view from the hallway
our 2nd bathroom just down the hall
another view
Hall view from our bedroom door complete with wedding photos
(open door is 2nd bath).
I purchased these frames from TJ Max, they will one day hold kids portraits.
I may even have each child's name or monogram written on the coordinating mat.
Our laundry room
(located across from the above photo)
I LOVE baskets.
Our bedroom
We will someday get the photo mat monogrammed and add our wedding date.
Another view of our room
(our doggies bed is in the corner)
Linen closet aka my bonus closet! More baskets!
My side of our closet, hubby has the same thing on the other side. I love having my shirts organized by sleeve length and then color. It really is easy to keep that way and cuts down on how long it takes to get dressed.
Our bathroom, those hooks are the key to getting your husbands to hang up their towels.
There is a double sink in there.

Hubby freaked out when I brought home leopard print towels when we were first married.
I think he knows better now though.
I love those Stephanie Johnson travel bags! Pricey but amazing. I have had mine for almost 5 years now and I would buy them all over again if I had to. My favorite one is the Tribeca, I take it on every trip I go on.

We also have a huge guest room that I didn't take photos of because it isn't quite yet perfect. There are some photos in previous posts though.

You have the cleanest house I have ever seen!

I pay someone to clean, and our apartment still doesn't look that good!

We also use a hook in the bathroom for Mr. Newlywed. He is a towel on the floor kind of guy...

Can I move in, please! I love it. Thanks for sharing!! The house is beyond adorable... and I'm very jealous of how clean it is ;-)

NINA said...

BEAUTIFUL!!! Your home reminds me a lot of my own. Everything has it's own place and you decorate with simple clean lines like I do. I've been in our house too long to do a house tour but when I start to redecorate that's when the camera comes out. :)

Your house is really pretty! We are saving for our first house, and we're planning on buying this summer. You pictures make me that much more excited!

I really love that Audrey photo in your bathroom! Also, I think we have the same shower curtain that you have in your bathroom. I love the white...it looks so bright and clean!

So pretty! Oh my gosh, so clean and bright. I love it.

I keep wanting to post pictures of my place since we finally bought our own home, but, it's still a work in progress 11 months later. Yikes! You've motivated me!

The Browns said...

What a pretty house! I totally have that same duvet cover & I LOVE it. I could kick myself for not getting the shams though. I found some Euro shams from www.thecompanystore.com that I put with it. I love it b/c I can bleach it.
