Here are some pictures of the townhouse

As promised here is some pictures of our new home. I was able to take a picture of the Dining Room yet or any of the bedrooms upstairs, but this is what is completely done for now. Atleast it will give you an idea of where I'm living now. Hope you enjoy the stroll through our new home!

This is the entryway. I'm actually standing in the entryway facing the front door.

This is the staircase side of the entryway. This little piece has followed us from NJ. I bought it at a craft show many years ago.

This is the coat closet side of the entryway. We bought the console table, the 2 stick lamps and the beautiful painting from Haverty's. Megan helped me put the group together.

Here's a glance from the entryway through the eating/kitchen area through to the Living Room.

I think this is one of my favorite walls in the house. I love the fireplace! It's a gas fireplace, all I have to do is flick a switch on the wall-it's great! I still have an ironwork piece to put behind the bird of paradise plant on the right side, but other than that I think that side of the room is done.

This is the wall across from the fireplace. I was able to break up my long wall unit from the other house. I used 4 of the 5 pieces here. I'm glad this wall can accomodate my huge twig wreath that I had over the fireplace in the old house.

This is my reading corner when I'm not sitting in the one and 1/2 chair on the other side of the room. It is great I can sit in this chair and look out into the courtyard and watch all the little birds coming to the 2 feeders, birdbaths and fountain! It's great!

Here is my lovely kitchen. The kitchen looks right into the eating area and there is also a half wall into the living room. Very nice for entertaining.

This is the eating area across from the kitchen.

Closeup of the eating area.

Remember the little iron bird bath/feeder I bought a few months back and painted? Well here it is in it's new home on my kitchen table. I found this runner with 4 matching placemats when I was packing. I had forgot about this set and I love it. Just perfect for summer!

To wrap up my tour I'm including a picture of my beautiful daylily that is blooming in the courtyard.

That's the end of the tour for now. I'll have more in a few days. Last night I made up the guest rooms, I just have to hang pictures in there. I also have to get the Dining Room just right before I show you that. Hope you enjoyed the tour so far! Have a great day!

It's beautiful Sherri and I'm sure it feels more like home now that you've added your own touches!

Lynne said...

It looks beautiful, Sherri. I love the way you could separate the wall unit. Is the big piece next to the fireplace the center piece of the wall unit?

Can't wait to see more pictures.

Sherri said...

Lynne-the center of the wall unit is the one to the left of the fireplace. We have our TV in that section on the top and the stereo on the bottom. It works out great!

Thanks for the nice comments Cathie and Lynne!

Everything looks wonderful, Sherri! You have a beautiful home and I'm sure you're enjoying it. I especially like the fireplace and your reading corner. How nice!

I like the change in your blog!


Kay said...

Honestly, Sherri! You've blown me away! I LOVED LOVED seeing your photos. You have done so much in such a short time. Wow! I'm embarrassed to show my rooms after seeing yours. Wow! You should be an interior decorator. Wait a minute...are you an interior decorator? You must be.

I just love it, Sherri! It is beautiful, and so finished! I have never lived in a finished house in my adult life. :<) I should show you some of my ongoing projects. (By the way, I left some notes on other posts today)

Hi Sherri! You did such a great job on your home. I love the way everything looks - so warm, cozy and inviting. You really get things accomplished!! Sounds like you're having fun with your family! You will need a vacation from the vacation!!

Gingabelle said...

Sherri, your home is so beautiful. I love the foyer and the white woodwork with the wood floors. You've done a great job.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
