Tour of Homes

We're going on a tour of homes today with Kelly's Korner! I love looking at other people's houses...the decor, the paint, the furniture placement...I love it all. It's such a fun way to get ideas, so I thought we'd join in on the fun. Most of you know we're in the process of moving, so I haven't taken many recent pictures of our house because honestly, this is what you'd see:
And that's not very pretty! Ha!


But, on a good day, here's our home...

On the way to the living room you pass the half bath.  This was the last room that had wallpaper left and we didn't have the energy or motivation to try to get it down.  So we did what any I'm-over-it person would do...we slapped up some new wallpaper on the top and black bead board on the bottom!  People either love this bathroom or they hate it.  I love it, love it, love it! 


Downstairs we also have the living room,
(This is also kind of an old picture so lot has changed (like the TV is actually hanging like it's supposed to be (and the walls really aren't lime green!)).
dining room, 





Upstairs is our bedroom,

and bathroom.  Nothing fancy...just a bathroom (that, like the rest of our house, used to have a flower garden all over the walls).


D's bedroom,
(These pictures were taken before he was born.  His room has definitely filled up a little now!)

and his bathroom...
I love his bathroom.  It's so much fun! :)

We have another bedroom that apparently we've never taken pictures of.  Right now it's a guest room/play room/ holding room for boxes.  I'm not even going in there with a camera! Ha!

Have a great weekend!  We're on our way to see the GAMECOCKS play!  (Well, on TV at least! :)

**And now that I look at Kelly's post, I see that today's tour is for living rooms...oops!  :)  Sorry, you got it all.  I'll join in room by room once we move! :)

  33. Hey Shannon! I found your link on Kelly's Korner. Love your colors in your home. I found it most fun though when I was looking at some of your older blog entries that we're both from SC and we share the same name :)
    I'm Shannon Carter. I was born in Anderson but lived the last 12 years in Charleston. My husband used to work at MUSC but got a job at the Mayo Clinic so now we're in Minnesota. It's an adjustment for a southern girl!
    Love your blog and wish you good luck with your move!

  37. Love your style, colors, and decor! Our playroom was that exact color green I think! I however muted it down a bit because with how big the room was, it was a bit too much. I loved it though!
