We have gone on a tour of our kitchen and pantry and now it is time to show you our living room. Our living room and kitchen are actually one open space, but they do have their own feel. We love the open concept design and wanted to have a big open space for entertaining.
Come on into our living room and we will show you around!
When you walk in our front door, you walk right into the living room and kitchen area.
When we were designing the house I told our builder Tom, from The Fox Group, that I wanted shiplap in the staircase. He loved it and went for it…and then he continued the white shiplap throughout the entire living room. Best decision ever. We LOVE it. It is amazing what a little shiplap will do to a room. All of our walls and shiplap are Bright White by Sherwin-Williams.
We have built in cabinets on the south wall with a fireplace and television. I insisted on the fireplace and Josh insisted on the television. We are loving them both, compromise is a wonderful thing:)

Here is a look from the upstairs!
I looked for a rug for this space for a LONG time. When I heard that Loloi Rugs teamed up with Magnolia Home and Joanna Gaines, I knew I had to check out their rugs. You all know I am a huge Joanna fan, who isn’t, right? I immediately fell in love with the Kivi Ivory Quarry Rug. It is SO pretty and perfect for the living room space.

On the east side of the living room, we have a wall of Pella windows and doors that open up into our outdoor covered patio. We love being able to open up all of the windows to create an indoor and outdoor entertaining space.
Here is the view from the patio. We love opening up the doors for parties, BBQ’s, or just to let the boys play outside. We love the fresh air.
This is the view from the kitchen.
I knew we had a lot of built in cabinets, but I didn’t really realize it until I had to decorate them. Luckily, I had some friends help me. One of my friends, Leslie, even painted me two beautiful paintings to help fill the space. I love them!
To decorate, we used cookbooks, cutting boards, and other random things I already had and then we went shopping at World Market to fill in the gaps.

Thanks for taking a tour of our living room. We love cozying up to the fire, watching football, and snuggling with the boys. This room really makes our house feel like a home.
