new living room

Welcome to our new living room! This is what you see if you enter from the front of the house.

living room from the front doorThis is probably as good a time as any to show you the unusual front-entry setup, since that would make a boring post by itself. This is a shared foyer–I guess that’s what you’d call it–that you enter from the front step. (The blue door seen here; it’s only blue on the outside. Other fun fact: it only has a knob on the outside, thanks to Those-Who-Lived-Here-Before.) This shot is taken from our open living room door across the foyer to our neighbor’s door. You can see her mail slot and her letter on the floor. We have a slot on our side too.

Lovey's desk areaOn the wall that hides the stairs, we have a small shelf, toys, and a box of stuff that needs a home. I’ll make this look better soon! The door on the left here could be closed to hide the stairs, but for now we’re leaving it open all the time. That may change this winter when we need to keep warm air upstairs.
