A Christmas View
We chose to put the tree up in our family room. I absolutely love the big bay windows. This room came with individual window screen blinds. You can catch a glimpse of them at the top of the windows. We will be taking them completely out soon. I can't stand them. The house was always shown with the blinds down and I think it made the room look dark and smaller. I purchased these au natural taupe cafe type curtains. They are not too sheer and let in just the right amount of light for me. The room looks soooo much better now. At first, I didn't care for this room. The previous owners had a lot of furniture in it and it felt so claustrophobic to me. The walls are a chocolate brown with off white molding and baseboards. The ceiling is a lighter brown. We have about half as much furniture in this room than there was and I love this room now.
Behind the tree, you can see my tea cart. On the wall is my huge clock that I had from the NC house. I can see what time it is even without my glasses on! At the right side of the photograph is the huge television, speaker, and television cabinet that we actually purchased from the owners. I'm not keen on the wood design but my husband had his heart set on the set of speakers, television, and the works. He is very sweet about letting me decorate as I see fit and I could not say no to him.
Sadly, all my Christmas decor is put away. I've a few winter touches out and hope to set out Valentine's Day soon.
