The Glow of the Afternoon Sun.

My home is really a sea of beige so I do everything I can to help change that and brighten things up.  The livingroom area is on the west side of the house and gets a lot of sun.  I had been working in the garage and was so dirty that I went straight to the shower, when I got out and came into the kitchen, this is what I saw through the door opening to the LR/DR.  I love the look the sun gives these rooms on this side of the house.


This room looks so inviting with the bright yellow tones and the glow of the afternoon sun.








See how bright the sun is.  Love it.  I even have the blinds at a slight angle so the sun won't shine on all the furniture and fade it.





This is standing in front of the leather chair in the front window and you can see how bright and glorious the sun is in the kitchen and familyroom area too. 

As you can see, I've changed to header to use a couple of these pics. 

Just a Blessing from the Lord, adding a little sunshine to my life.  Love it.

I hope your weekend is full of Sunshine and Blessings too.

  9. Your home looks so warm and inviting. I love how bright it is. Our former house was like that, but the one we live in now is so dark. Sometimes, I just have to get outside and in the light! I would love to come visit you and be enveloped in all that sunshine.

  10. Nothing better than natural sunlight to brighten up a space. Too bad we live in Seattle. Sun is very scarse here.

  16. It's always amazing how different our rooms will look at different times of the day. I guess that's why it's so important to think about using the right paint color in each room. I agree. Sunny days are best!

  27. Marty,
    Reminds me of a song learned in the days of my youth @ Sunday School.
    "Sunlight, sunlight in my soul today! Sunlight, sunlight all along the way. Since the Savior found me, took away my sin. I have had the Sunlight of His love within!"
    Beautiful amber glow into your gorgeous home. I noticed the change in your header before reading the reason for it's change. Lovely!
    Fondly,
    Pat
