We are happy to welcome Sylvie Liv to the blog today to share bits of her lovely home with us!
"I share my home with my dear husband and our bunch of munchkins. When we bought our home five years ago, our family was smaller. We were looking for a home that had room for our family to grow… We found what we wanted and much more here in this cozy house in the Michigan countryside."
"Our home is cozy. I love having a fireplace in our living space. There is something so comfy about sitting around the fire in the winter with a cup of spice tea in my hands and my littles all piled around me. Last winter my husband and I built a fort in front of the fireplace and camped in it overnight. It was the perfect cozy, fun, and free date!"
"One of my favorite pieces is my vintage Metro Detroit map in my dining room. My Mom found it for me! I also love my vintage doily hanging in my living room. I found my big vintage doily in my Grandmother’s craft room stash! I suppose the most unusual decoration in my home is the round pulley wheels on my dining room shelves. They are off of the back of an old washing machine. I found them in my Father in Law’s barn. It is so fun to dig in his barn to find old forgotten treasures! Many people who visit us comment about my use of the buck mount in my living room décor. I like it there, and that is what’s important!"
"When we first moved into our home, we had a mix of all different things that people had given to us. I have slowly worked to swap those things with things that I love. Now our space makes me so happy. I spend my entire days here with my little ones and my work, so it is important to me that it is inspiring, practical, and comfortable! In our home… we eat (constantly!), we sleep (not enough), we work (mostly Dad and Mum), we play (and make messes), we sing (our poor neighbors!), we hug (and smear noses on Mum), we cry (everyday), we laugh (til we cry), and we have company over (a lot)."
