Live, Work, Learn

Today's room of the day is:
The Living Room/Office

This is the space that we will be spending most of our waking hours so we wanted it to be comfortable, cute, and functional. For those that don't know I will be working from home so for me the office area was one of the most crucial of the whole apartment. 

We watch A LOT of television and we own WAY to many DVDs. Just to paint a small picture we have a DVR box from our cable company that lets us record 2 shows at once and we also have a TiVo box hooked up so we can record more....because for some reason we are insane and feel the need to be able to record 4 shows at the same time. As I'm typing this I realize we might have a problem. A TV sickness. If that such a thing? 

Anyways, moving on...Pixie sleeps under the Eiffel Tower. Or at least she does in theory. So far she isn't really liking it. That's where she slept before we moved but now she has a new bed. I'm not sure if it's the bed she doesn't like or if she just doesn't like being in the corner away from everything. I had to bribe her with a treat to take this picture. 

I love how this turned out! I've had that picture of NY on the wall forever and am so glad it's finally hanging up on a wall instead of just leaning up against one like it has been for several years. The ottomans are a great pop of color and dual purpose as a coffee table and storage.

How fun are these teacup trays we found at Ikea?!

And finally, the office area. This is still a slight work in progress as I'm slowly learning what works for me in my transition to working from home. Once Shelby starts school she will likely have some modifications as well.

That's all for now folks. The bedrooms are up next so check back the rest of the week!
