I decided to participate in Show Us Your Life Friday over at Kelly's Korner. Todays' topic is Show Us Where You Live, specifically, Living Rooms. I thought this sounded like a ton of fun! I love looking at other people's homes. It's a great way to get a peek into their life, as well as get a little inspiration of your own. I figured I couldn't look at everyone else's without sharing my own.
This is our house. It's over 100 years old. It's actually a house that my parents own and rent to college students each year. My sister, brother and I all lived here when we were in college (not at the same time, unfortunately). When Paul and I moved back to Colorado a year ago, we knew we wanted to rent this house from my parents. It's such a cute little house and it's in a GREAT location! We are walking distance from work, bars, restuarants, shops, and some of the best hiking trails in Boulder.
This is the view of our Living Room/Family Room (and Oscar haha) from the front door. The couch is one I've had since college. The coffee table was a house-warming present from our parents when Paul and I bought our first home (in Auburn). The futon is a hand-me-down from my sister. We've always got friends and family coming to stay with us on the weekends, especially during football season, so the futon gets a ton of use!
This is the view from the other side of the room. The bar at the end of the room is another hand-me-down from my sister and I love it! The brown chair is Paul's favorite thing. We bought it a couple of years ago. One thing you should know about me is I hate recliner chairs. I just don't think they look nice. Paul wanted one so bad. He spent six months trying to convince me that he really needed one. I finally compromised and said that we could get one, but only if it was leather (none of those microfiber varieties with the built-in cup holders). I must say, the chair has grown on me. But I can't wait until we move into a house that's big enough for Paul to have a study or den and I can stick the chair in there haha!
Well, that's our Living Room. I hope you all enjoyed it!
And on another note, the Buffs play Hawaii tomorrow so wish us lots of luck!
Have a great weekend :)
