I have been back and forth all the time on what to call that front room that will function as a more formal (no tv) living room/hangout space with a 8 person dining table.  its sort of parlor, sort of formal dining, sort of formal living, kyle’s family always called it living room, …you get the picture!  for now, it will be the front room!  It was probably the worst room when we moved in, but it is starting to come around!  First thing we did was rip out the pink carpet.  Remember that???  I took down the mini-blinds and removed the screens from the windows and was SHOCKED at how much bigger the room looked and how much natural light came in!

Here is a before:

Here is the new sofa and chair!  I love love love the color.  It is sort of a paprika red/orange.  Not rust.  Its hard to describe.  It is more saturated than rust.  Sort of dead between orange and red.  I looove it.  The chair is big enough for me, kyle, harley and belle.  I got this from ZGallerie.  GREAT prices for the quality by the way.  The half painted wall color is “Chelsea Gray” by Benjamin Moore, and we will have the dark wood floors and black chandeliers.  I got curtains that are sort of a velvety/suede that match the wall color almost exactly and have a sheer stripe between them.

Notice the huge pile of construction materials in the background and the missing molding above the door frame.  Fun times are ahead!
