When we first looked at this house I loved these shelves in the living room. A lot of our books and knick knacks are still all boxed up in a warehouse in Houston. I never thought I would 'need' more books, but I am just going to have to wait and see what we find in our adventures here. This was my first pass at the staging these shelves and having at least this one thing done is helping me feel a little more settled.
The other side of the living room has our hutch that we bought in Norway. I love this piece and I like leaving it a little more uncluttered than it was in our house in Oslo.
This is one of my favorite corners of the living room, the view into our backyard is so peaceful.
This space will be even better when we get our couch delivered next week, we find a cozy rug and I get a few things hung on the walls. One step at a time though.
