Giveaway Winner and not so great Pictures...

IMAG0058
Hi everyone! I MISS you all so much, but I also enjoy seeing the number of boxes left to unpack dwindle… First thing’s first, it’s way past time to announce the winner for the giveaway. Thank you to everyone who participated! Drum roll please,  the Winner is Ren –Lady of the Arts! Congrats Ren!
OK,  the not great picture above is a peek into the sunroom (which is fast becoming my favourite spot to just chill) I cannot locate the charger for my camera or that of the hubby’s, so I have to resort to taking pictures with my phone. We recently had custom blinds installed (what an expense that is, especially with those big arch windows!). However, they are a necessity and I love how simple they are.

This is really the formal dining room which is adjoining the kitchen. As you can see, I think Baby Z looks better in the space than some fancy dining furniture. This works perfectly for me as I can see him and vice versa since he’s right off the kitchen. I will eventually dedicate the space to formal dining but for now, this suits us best. The rooms are obviously not decorated yet, but I wanted to share a peek with you anyway. The pendant light is the Le Klint from DWR. There will be more to share of course once I get rid of my boxes and things are more presentable.

  1. Looking amazing so far ~ can't wait to see more and I, for one, don't care if they are grainy pictures!

    Love the mouldings you have gone with ~ and rather taken with that shade of grey on the walls.

  2. I think your pictures are great. I am really loving the sun room, I've always wanted one. Baby Z's room is darling, he must love it. Best of luck with the remainder of your unpacking, Stacey!

  12. Your sun room looks so welcoming. Wish I could visit and have a cup of tea in front of those windows (I would obviously wash up on my own).

    Thanks for visiting twice during my unexpected bloggy break. I've moved to www.seekingsynergy.wordpress.com. and would love you to have you drop by.

  21. Congratulations on your move!! At my house in Sweden I left the living room empty to work as a play room as I figured out how I wanted it. Of course it's Luke and his friends favorite space as they can run and have a big empty space to play. Can't wait to see you house!! Looks great so far!

    You guys can eat on the dining room floor; tatami style(Japanese style)

  24. I think the formal dining is a perfect play spot. When my kids were young I used ours for a play area (I didn't do formal gatherings too often if any and the space was just going to waste.)

    Can't wait to see the place all unpacked and ready to be revealed.

  25. Thanks for the share Stacey, and great idea to use it as a play area, also, you made me smile with that charger comment, I had the same issue when we moved...
    take care, Maureen x
