Living it up in the front room

Living it up in the front room

Did you grow up with a “front room?” The fancy room that no one was ever allowed to enter unless they were royalty or clergy and only then if they had removed their shoes?

I think today most people prefer to actually use the spaces they have, but also, ALSO… I kinda can see the point of the “front room.” It’s right there in front! It’s the room that should set the tone for everything else, the first and sometimes only look at your home that your guests see.

So, solution time: Make it livable AND awesome. Like Colleen did here! See more on her blog Lemondrop Dreams.

    What a difference light furniture and calm gray paint can do for a room! It looks fantastic!

    I look at the first picture with the exersaucer and the second picture with the white furniture and think “idiots, no way that is staying white with kids in the house”. 🙂
