Photo & Challenge Prompt: Day 10

Today’s challenge is:

Your favorite room in your house

This photo isn’t the best, but it’s the only one I already have online! I guess it’s a realistic representation of the fact that our house is almost always messy, though. :) My favorite room is….

Our living room! It’s not a huge room but it’s perfectly sized for us. The majority of it is used as our living space, with our TV, couch, coffee table, and yes – Lego table. Behind the couch is our “office” which consists of a big desk Brian constructed out of a door.

We spend almost all of our time in this space. The boys and Brian love playing at the Lego table, and the sectional (our Christmas gift to each other) is perfect for us to all pile up on to watch a movie. There’s a bookcase off to the left that you can’t see – it’s filled with books, Lego creations, Brian’s collection of antique cameras, other various knick knacks, and toys. Not the most “designed” bookcase you’ve ever seen, but it’s reflective of our life and interests.

Our desk is a hub for a lot of activity. We work on freelance jobs, balance our checkbook, and I work on my blog in this space. It’s almost always a cluttered surface unless we have company coming, although I’ve been working on figuring out an organizational system because clutter drives me nuts! Over to the right of the desk is a big armoire filled with our board game collection; in college Brian and I would often buy a board game instead of going to see a movie, and we’ve amassed quite a collection over the years. We love playing games, so I don’t know how much longer the armoire will hold everything!

That’s a brief overview of our living room, my favorite room – what space do you love most in your house?

    I love all the rooms in my home, but my most favorite is probably our bedroom.

      That’s great! We haven’t done much with our bedroom but I would love to make it into a cozy retreat of a space.

    what a huge sectional! oh I love it!!

    We spend almost all our time in the living room/kitchen area too (it is all open here) what a fun place to be with your family and it looks like a very cozy spot too!

    Your setup reminds me very much of my last house where I had my desk/office set up behind the couch like that too. What a wonderful space you have there. :)

    Comfy! My favorite room is actually my daughter’s bedroom.

    • Christi March 16, 2011 at 2:37 pm

      I bet it’s adorable! I do always think kids’ rooms tend to be the cutest ones in the house. How did you decorate your daughter’s room?

      • Katie March 17, 2011 at 9:24 pm

        It’s light yellow and light green, yellow on the bottom, green on the top and there are thin stripes alternating in the middle.

        • Christi March 17, 2011 at 9:29 pm

          Nice! I’ve always wanted to paint stripes on walls but have never been brave enough to try it.
