The Family Room
This room is fairly simply with a boring name.
Our dream here is to create a space which is focused around the new fireplace. Right when you walk into the home, you will turn to your right and see this room. With a couple cozy couches, a coffee table, and some hot cider, we hope to make this spot basically a Christmas Card dream come true.
So here are the changes:
- Knock down the walls between the fireplace
- Vault the ceiling
- Expose the fireplace
- Replace carpet with hardwood floors
And here are some design thoughts:
- White walls (Marshmallow by Sherwin-Williams)
- Cement hearth
- Chimney of fireplace will have paneling from dining room (trust us on this one)
- Large artwork above the fireplace mantel
- Barkus sleeping by the front window
As far as updates go, we spent the end of last week really discussing the pros and cons of Quarry. Honestly, the budget from the contractors came back a little differently than was originally stated and it forced us to reconsider renovating this home.
After some great talks with family and a trusted friend, we've decided to move forward and are doing so with a little extra excitement to get this thing done. It is so nice to know this is the place we will be calling home for the next stage of our lives.
So here we go folks. Demolition starts today.
