I call this room the Sunny Delight. Well I didn’t until now, but it’s a good name. We just refer to it as the gray and yellow room. How exciting.

I love this room especially because of all the natural light. It has 2 windows and man, that makes all the difference. If/when kids come along I think this might be the nursery room. All the natural light makes it feel cheery.

But this is what it looked like first:

Now I have to do a disclaimer and say I didn’t take the “before” pictures. But I’m not going to point any fingers and say who did.

What?? How did this picture of my adorable husband get here?


(Another disclaimer: I’m not husband bashing, he thought that part was funny 😉

Anyways, even in the limited scope you get the idea. Don’t barf looking at the carpet. Actually if you did, it’d probably blend in.

Thankfully, here’s what it looks like now:

    I have so many favorite parts from this post. “well I didn’t until now, but it’s a good name” lol.
    and that “random” photo of Titus lol.

    and WOW this room should literally be in a Better Homes and Garden magazine. Please Please help me decorate my house someday.

    This post showed up below your basement post and I had to read it and comment all over again. I love this room. So bright and cheery like you said. I have great memories of this one since I had the privilege of staying in it. I hope to come visit again, it’s so cozy in your home.
