The Living Room

Spread the love

…Also known by some as the family room.

Wikipedia’s Definition

A family room is an informal, all-purpose room in a house similar to a living room. The family room is designed to be a place where family and guests gather for group recreation like talking, reading, watching TV, and other family activities.[1][2] Often, the family room is located adjacent to the kitchen, and at times, flows into it with no visual breaks[3]. A family room often has doors leading to the back yard and specific outdoor living areas such as a deck, garden, or terrace.
The distinction between a family room, a living room, and a recreation room may be fluid. In homes with more than one, the living room is usually the more formal room, often reserved for guests, special occasions, and the display of items such as antiques or artwork. The recreation room is typically in the basement and used for games and playtime. In homes with only one, the terms are generally synonymous. It is not uncommon for someone who grew up calling such a room by only one term to have no idea of the distinction between the two.[citation needed] In floorplans, a “great room” is where the living room and family room are combined into one high-ceilinged room adjacent to the kitchen.[4]

So anyway now that you got your lesson today, someday when someone asks, you’ll be very informed 🙂 So who’s ready for some pictures after that ;).
Before Shots: (this is all the previous owners things)
So here are some progress photos:
Just put my Painted Pony collection up.
The fridge is in the living room because we were laying tile floor in the kitchen 🙂 It’s back where it belongs now 🙂
And Now for some Final photos (as for now anyway):

Eventually hopefully we’ll lose the futon and lose the feel of college student living but until then, hey it matches and it’s super comfy. Plus if we have extra company, they can sleep on it. My roll top desk was originally going to go in the MIL room but I thought it looked better in the living room. So again we’re still on the quest for something for that one wall in the MIL room.

On a side note: Tara over at That’s Why Her Hair is So Big… did a post on The 30 Day Shred Jillian Michaels. For $9 I thought I’d try it too (I tried P90X, didn’t have that much time to give up in a day, some days 1 hr, others 1 hr 15 minutes and one day 1 hr 30 minutes). For 20 a minutes a day I thought yeah I can give up that much time. Holy cow, My calves are killing me today. Yesterday was my first time. I might die but hey hopefully I can get my skinny on by my wedding… yeah probably won’t happen but a girl can dream right?

Peace, Love, & Family Living rooms 🙂

  1. Living room looks great.

    I got P90X. Didn't last very long either. I just bought 90 Days Shred a couple weeks ago. My thighs KILLED me after the first day! Good luck!

  2. A) LEYOVEEE your little “ranch” style home. Is that what you'd call it? So cute!

    B) I love Tara! She's adorable!

    C) I puked my first day of the 30 day shred! BUT it gets better! Make sure you take your time on each level! It'll be worth it! Jillian is a devil and an angel all in one hot package 😉 GOOD LUCK!

  3. P90X is a workout system that is based on “muscle Confusion”. You give it 90 days and it's supposed to change your body. My fiance did it with me for a while and he said a lot of the workouts are based off the Military. It will kick your butt. One night you work muscles, the next is cardio, the next is stretching and it changes up every night. You give up anywhere from 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours a night. It's Hard. I hated it because I never saw a change after 30 days and I gave up.

  4. Love the light furniture…it makes the room look so much larger!

    I thought about P90X, but was just not willing to spend the $. I hadn't thought about the 30 day shred…let me know how it goes!
