Welcome to the main floor! PChad & I are still disagreeing on what we call this space. He calls it the front room. I tend to describe it by what's in there (or what will be in there). So, I call it the fireplace room, or the piano room (despite there not being a piano at this point)*
This is the front entrance! This house strangely has no hall closets, so we installed a shelf with hooks behind the door. A nice find on kijiji (Canadian CraigsList) which matched the decor perfectly.
As you walk in, just to your right is a nice fireplace & sitting area...
and a wall waiting for a piano!
*if you, or someone you know in the area is looking to get rid of a piano for cheap, or even free, we are in the market for one!
