Our living room is the whole reason I wanted to buy this house in the first place. Bear with me now...can you picture that panelling painted? I could! My husband, not so much. It took some discussing before we both agreed. The room has a lot of natural lighting from the patio doors. There's no deck off the doors, but there will be this summer, hopefully!
The living room and adjoining office (which we turned into our bedroom) were added to the house a few years after it was built. Instead of building it at the same level, for some reason I don't know, it was built higher up. This adds an extra level to our house, which is fine since we're young, but I can see why the elderly couple we bought the house from couldn't do it any longer.
Next up, our bedroom!
