Continuing on with the house tour.
For those of you just joining J and A & Company; we recently bought a home.
We just completed nine long years of traveling the world like gypsies while my husband went to medical school, did residency and fellowship.
We have finally settled down, and I am sharing our dream come true.
Settling down, near family, in a beautiful neighborhood with amazing neighbors;truly is a dream come true.
Our beautiful new home is the icing on the cake.
I am sharing our house in great detail because I love seeing more than just one picture of each room in someone’s home. I love when people share more about their home, and I can actually picture it in my head. This is where we draw inspiration, and get to really know how home’s function.
…so I am doing just that. I hope you enjoy seeing more too.
Today,I am sharing the office that is right off of the entry way as you walk in.
This space is so nice for Jonathan to have.
I have so many ideas for this room, but that will come later.
This is what the space looked like when we bought it:
Here it is now:
This room has glass doors that open up to the office from the living space. It is such a beautiful touch.
One of the selling features of this home for me was all the custom molding.
I love that this room has the beautiful molding around the room, and also on the ceiling.
We bought these chairs and table from the previous owner, and I just knew they belonged here in the office.
She had them in her living space(this is the previous living room with her chairs:
I also can’t wait to get Jonathan a real desk.
A doctor deserves a big, sturdy, fill up this room desk.
These things will come with time.
The big mirror was already here in the room, but I plan to do something like this with this wall:
…and of course his beautiful new guitar looks great in this space.
I also made sure to hang his picture of his 13 pound bass in here.
A few of the details:

Just off of the office is what I call Command Central. I lead the troops from this area.
This is where all the organization happens.
This is what it looked like when we bought the home:
and here it is now:
This was listed as a Butler’s pantry as it connects the office (which could be a dining room instead) to the kitchen.
This is a great place to store my china, table clothes, and placemats. Which is exactly what a butler’s pantry is for.
However, I have found that this is a great place to keep all our pens, papers, and my calendar as well.
This is where the mail goes, the school notes, and all the little papers I need to run our life.
We also keep the backpacks here.(3 kids were at school when I took this picture; so we are missing backpacks)
As you can see it really is command central; every home should have a space like this. It helps this mommy so much.

I hope you enjoyed this portion of the tour.
