Above is a shot of the two-story entryway from the top of the stairs. The photographs (all landscapes) are ones I took on our trips to Banff, Alberta (our honeymoon), and two separate trips to Hawai'i (to The Big Island and Kauai, respectively). I'm not really a photographer, but I enjoy it and I like having personal art around the house that isn't just pictures of Dave and I (which can start to feel a bit egomanical). In July Dave and I are going to London and then up to Scotland and I'm hoping to get some great shots of the City as well as the Highlands to go up here later this year to help fill out this massive wall. We'll also be repainting the entire floor (sans the bedrooms) later this spring in a slightly deeper beige. You can't tell from these pictures, but the contractor's paint is starting to look really beat up.
The kitchen looks out over the living room, which is mammoth in size but does sport some nice architectural detailing with the sloped ceiling and woodwork. I particularly love the french doors (which open out on to teenie tiny balconies, but no matter):
