Our House: Living Dining Computer Room

 Our house enters into a huge room. It's beautiful, with hardwood floors and a deep turquoise paint color that extends into the kitchen. The room is challenging, however. It's too big to be just a dining room but not quite big enough to be a dining room and living room in one. I don't know if we'll keep it how it is, but this is how we've dealt with this room thus far: 

View from the kitchen. The white door on the right is the front door which exits to the driveway.

Dining area. The window to the left is a bay window. Or, as my girls refer to it: the stage.

My reading "Nook" has taken on a life of it's own. It's getting cozy, and it'll be nice to lots of seating for the kids' birthday parties! This window overlooks the street.

Ignore the messy desk, it's become a catch-all for things we don't have a spot for yet. This is straight in from the front door. The hall to the left leads to a bath and two bedrooms.

All of the artwork in this room is either created by the kids or photos of the kids. Perhaps that is why I seem to be happiest when I am relaxing in here. It's my quiet place once the kids go to bed.

Where did the other chair come from?

When Brian brought Jerry's truck back, they asked him to take that chair too. It was in their garage. I have no idea where they got it.
