Home tour (caution, photo heavy!)

Okay, as Marcia asked to see my home, here's a quick home tour. I took the pix right after I had finished my weekly cleaning, so this is just the best it can look, it's usually much messier!

Here's the view you have when you enter our property. We are very lucky to have a big garden around our home.

Here's the door. I love the roses, especially the white ones that smell soooooo good.
When you enter the house, there's some sort of "roundabout" in the middle from where you can go to the different rooms. There are 5 rooms in the original part of the house (on the right on the picture above): our bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, another spare room/future kids' room/today's dungeon (it's so messy I couldn't bare to take pix of it! LOL) and the office. Then the living room is in the former garage (on the extreme left on the pic above) that we remodeled about 2 years ago. Okay, let's get in!
Here's the entry way, with the "roundabout" in front and the bathroom's door.
The first room on the right when you enter the house is the office. Here's an overall view

DBF's desk, on the left when you enter the office.
The office's storage, on the right of the room. There's also our indoor bike (which is more often used as a very expensive coat hanger) and our cat's boxes on the floor. Having this cat is like having a toddler, he leaves toys all over the place... ;)

My desk, in front of the door

Then there's our bedroom, on the left of the "roundabout".

Here's DBF's closet

And here's mine. Yes, my boyfriend has more clothes than me.
In front of the entrance is our tiny, very narrow bathroom. At least it's easier to clean up! It's so tiny we don't even have a bathtub, only a shower. That might be a problem when we have babies, but we'll figure it out then!

Here's an opposite view of the bathroom. It's one of the only room that doesn't have much built in storage, but it's enough for our needs. Once again, this might change when we have babies.
On the right, in the back of the house when you enter, is the kitchen. It's bright yellow and I love how cheerful this look in the morning. If I'm not awake by the time I get in, I am after that! LOL
This is the cooking/fridge/freezer area. I have a very limited working space so everything is hang up, it frees more surface.

The table and the sink, with our dishwasher. The cat's litter is also in there, because we rarely eat in the kitchen. We move it when we eat there. It's not a perfect spot for it, but it's the "least bad" place for us!

The kitchen's HUGE storage space... love it!

Last but not least, the living room. We have to go down a couple steps from the kitchen to get there.

This is the first part of the room when we get down from the kitchen.

Our "big books" and comics bookcase (the paperback/pocket books are in the office)
The entertainement area. Almost all the storage there is empty. Ain't it fabulous, especially for a packrat like me?
Well, this is it, I hope you enjoyed the visit! Let me know what you think!!

I love your home. I wish mine was as uncluttered. It looks like you have great shelves and organization systems. :)

Aww, your house is cute! It looks like you've got some great storage - something my house is definitely lacking. Thanks for the tour!

I love your home! My favourite is the view of the front door - so welcoming - I'd love to come home every day :)

And you've done a great job in keeping it uncluttered!

You have a lovely and well organized home!
Thanks for sharing :-)

I love your home. So uncluttered and spacious. I love that you get a lot of natural light in. I find that this makes a huge difference to my state of mind.
My favourite part of your house is your bright yellow sunlit kitchen.
