Back to reality

We've had a very productive holiday season, worked on a lot of projects, and now we're enjoying this scene on our last night before regular work weeks resume (BOO):

It is divine.  I've got some great posts coming this week, including the final dressing room pictures (it's almost done!) and a new room Shaun decided to tackle even though he told me I'M not allowed to start any new projects.  What the heck?  Here is a teaser I found on my camera after he got started while I was at work:

Oh yeah, it's a doozie.  Hope everyone's New Years festivities were as memorable as this wallpaper was!

That picture is so relaxing and makes me want to snuggle up by the fire. I am returning to work tomorrow as well and this break has not been long enough.

Can't wait to see the next project!

I am in denial that I have to go back to work tomorrow. Yuck.

Can't wait to see your dressing room and the mystery project!

Love how cozy your room looks.

I'm at work ... it was quite a shock gettin gup at 6:15AM again after being off for two weeks. Oh well ... got to do something to pay for all the projects I have planned.

That's your living room? Wow! It's so cozy. I love your white fireplace and bookshelves. I'd be afraid to choose such rich colors, but it looks great in your home! (Maybe I'll paint our fireplace...)

LOVE the fireplace!! We haven't even attempted to use our yet, but this makes me want to!!! We don't have a damper...so that might make it difficult to use.

i'm jealous of the fireplace - it's been too long since i've lived in a house with a working fireplace.

i started removing some wallpaper this weekend too... for about 5 mins and then i gave up. hope you were more productive :-)

Amanda said...

1. BOO to having a day job.
2. Removing wallpaper sucks.
3. Is that a gas log or a real wood burning roaring fire?

Amanda said...

Oh, and lovely photo :-)

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

Amanda, that is a duraflame log with WOOD on top. We don't have a gas insert, we like old-fashioned crackling of sawed up pallets and old trim pieces. ha

I can't wait to see your transformations!!
Your decor is stunning!

(PS Your fiance has great teeth!!!)

Amanda said...

Your room is beeeeautiful! It looks so cozy with the fire. And I'm totally jealous of your built-ins.

P.S. Work sucks.
