A Very, Very, Very Fine House

My mother is nagging me to post pictures of the new house, so here goes:

This is the master bedroom. It's much larger than it appears in the picture. To the left is a huge window that looks onto the back porch and yard. To the right is the entrance into the...

...master bathroom. To the left of the mirror is a walk-in closet. Going around the room from the mirror to the right are a whirlpool tub, shower, toilet, linen closet, another sink and another walk-in closet. The other sink is directly opposite this one. This wallpaper makes me want to vomit. It will have to go soon.

Here's the kitchen. Everything stays but the refrigerator. That's fine with us.

And this is the eat-in area. The door you see to the right used to be the entry onto the back porch, but the previous owners glassed in the porch area and made it an office. There is an ongoing debate about what will happen to this area. (The porch, not the eat-in area). The pheasant wallpaper border makes me want to vomit.


Here's the dining room, taken from the living. Can you guess what this wallpaper makes me want to do? Nothing a little steamer can't take care of, though.

I hope my mother is happy.

You're all welcome to visit anytime.

Your friends will appreciate me "nagging." I am always happy when it comes to the choices you have made. Love you bunches!

We have some other suggestions if the steamer doesn't work...
But yes, the wallpaper does leave something to be desired. but all this wanting to vomit. Makes me think of something I've recently been through...

MomLove you, too!

I keep coming back and expecting the wallpaper to be changed but alas it hasn't. It makes my head spin. Though the space of this place is to die for. It looks like a huge place, especially compared to your one bedroom place in Chicago. I have no hints whatsover on the wallpaper other then CHANGE IT!. But it seems that is already your plan so you don't need that advice. Is Joshua's room going to be john deere green?

Wow! That's a great house! I think I recognize that line of wallpaper too, it's called Floral Barf, right? Seriously, the house is so great that the wallpaper hardly subtracts!
