Guest Blogger: Blueprint Bliss

Hi- it's Brooke from Blueprint Bliss. I was so excited when Jennifer asked me to be a guest blogger while she was away. She asked if we could show you a bit of our homes... where our inspiration is put to work.

If you've looked around my blog before- you've seen my kitchen and most recently my master bedroom redo. So today I thought I would share another part of my house with you. My entry/ living/ dining is all one big room and literally half of my house!

Our floor plan is kind of funky (1950's rancher)... but maybe these photos can help you figure it out. And I'm on the same page as Paula (from her guest post Monday)- my house is always a work in progress!
Here is what you see when you enter the front door:

And here is the view looking back at the front door from the living room:

Then you enter into the living room:

And from the living room you connect to the dining area:

I thought I would share this part of my house with you because it's where we spend most of our time when we are home. My favorite 'thing' in these rooms would probably be the piece of furniture that is to the right of my sofa (you can see it best in the first photo). My grandmother called me one day soon after I graduated from college and said that she had a dry sink that she no longer wanted. I didn't know what a dry sink was- but I was happy to add any piece of furniture to my non-existent collection. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. And love the fact that it was refinished by my grandfather!
.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Jennifer- thanks again for inviting me over to be a guest blogger while you are away.

I love your house, it is so peaceful. It looks great! I never knew that about the piece beside your sofa, I have always liked it but now I like it even more!
