The living room is my favorite room in the house right now. It’s filled with so many of our collectibles and so many memories.
For the first year and a half in this house, the living room was empty!
This is how the living room looked for a year and a half
Another "before" shot
But ever since December, we’ve finally saved up to buy enough furniture to be able to spend some time here. Love, love, love!
aaand after! We're still missing a ceiling fan in place of the bare bulb.
Gotta love my 7-year-old upright fan, with a bag hanging over it to keep it from vibrating too much. I tie up the curtains during the day because I have no curtain holders!
Our beloved entertainment center, and a red light cover my friend Viri brought us from Tepoztlan, Mexico
filled with all the things we love most!
Part of Jorge's Nintendo collection... Super Nintendo and Game Cube
A little blurry, but this is a candle my mom got me and some dead coral I collected in Akumal
On top of the entertainment center is a painting of Rio de Janeiro my sister Sarah did, and a wooden sailboat I bought in Belize
Also on top of the entertainment center, a cool photograph/drawing mix and a wedding album, both created by my sister Sarah
My alebrije collection... I'll do a separate post on it in the future. It's my fave thing! Some I bought, most are gifts from my mom.
I got this "barro negro" piece in Oaxaca City, Mexico
Another piece from Oaxaca, this one made of "barro rojo"
A photo of my dad and me at my sister Noelle's wedding, with a frame my sister Sarah gave me
On the wall, a photo collage from my sister Noelle's Vegas wedding
Above the sofa, a tryptic painting by my sister Sarah (sorry for more blurriness, I wish you guys could see the beautiful colors here)
My carpenter grandfather made me this beautiful magazine holder several years ago. We don't read magazines, so we use it to store Nintendo accessories 🙂
Our coffee table, another item made by our carpenter friend Leo. We saw one at a department store, took some pictures, and had Leo make it cheaper (and bigger).
