I don’t know why, but this is one of my favorite parts of the house. All the bedrooms are on one floor, and this is looking down the hallway from the master bedroom.

This hallway just screams HOME to me, and I can’t wait to unpack all of our books and stack them in the built-in shelving that lines the entire length of the house.
