Rainbow House

A lot has happened since I last posted...and it's all happening so fast! Jared and I are now in the process of purchasing this home! WOO HOOOOOO! It's a charming little 2 bedroom one bath home with an unfinished basement that was built in 1944! But don't let the white fool you...Jocelyn and Lizzie call this their rainbow house, and for good reason!

Here is the living room! It's a good size with a gas fireplace, bay window and arched entry way...still wondering why it's called the rainbow house?
TA DUMMMMMM! Here is the obscenely pink bathroom accented with blue stripes in the tile all over a bed of red carpet. The interesting thing about this bathroom is that it is divided into a toilet room and a shower room by a sliding pocket door. There are actually two doors from the hallway that go into each room! FUNNY!!!
Next is the kitchen/dining room combo! I for one LOVE it like crazy!!! We're not changing the colors at all! Notice the retro light fixture! It's a round flourescent fixture! We will add a dishwasher eventually and maybe some more cabinets on the wall that's not pictured.
There is tile around the entire room as well as a funky green carpet. We too will change out the carpet but like I said we're leaving the tile and green paint...there's also a bay window here. So that's the big news in our family! Not much else though! Let me know what you think!

As long as it doesn't smell like green beans then you are set.

CONGRATS! I agree. The kitchen is great. The pink bathroom though... I love the house. I'm really happy for you. Owning a home is SO much better than renting. If you do make changes, you should take pictures and post them. :)

Not that I am an expert because I don't own my home...or have a mortgage...but I talk to people all day that do....let me knew if you questions that in my limited abilty maybe could answer!!!

Congratulations! How exciting...a real home. I'm thinking it'll be a good 10 years before I have one of those...hehe. Until then...I'll enjoy the apartment living :). What a fun kitchen! I love it!!!

Matt and Jess said...

Yeah, a house for you guys! That's so fun, and I love the kitchen! That bathroom is so funny, we had one like that when my parents were renting here in Utah. Carpet around the toilet is NOT cool.

Amy said...

Congratulations! That's so awesome you guys are getting a house. Those colors are pretty crazy though! Who knew you could have pink tile in your bathroom?! ;)

Congratulations!! We live in an old house right now, built in the 30's. It's great, until I go into a more modern house, and I miss all the fun fixtures. Good luck in the process!

Jen said...

Holy Moly! I love it. How fun. I love the retro and I love older homes. MY dad was born in 1944 :)
glad you found me. :)

Thanks for the tour! I stopped at Jimi's house and Alyssa and I tried to guess which one was yours, I don't remember this one (after all, we were looking for a "rainbow" house, LOL). What's with pink bathrooms anyway? That's how our was. You may not care for pink, but I'm sure your girl LOVE it! :D (Missed you today. Hope all else is well.)

Looks like a great house with lots of character, how exciting! It's the best when you have a place of your very own, especially with kids. Where is the house at? Good luck with moving in!
