Some things fell into place this week that helped me put the final touches on the living room. And now I’m ready to share!
This living room has a lot that is different from our last one. New couch, new rug, smaller space and different coffee table. This room was the hardest to put together. There was no clear way to set it up. The obvious space for the living room had a sliding door on one wall and doors and closet along another wall. We knew we needed to block off the area using the couch as a divider…but it took some finagling to get it to all work.
And I think it does!!
The most recent addition was the two stools. I ordered them from ikea and they arrived on Monday. The stools can be used as seating or as tables…and I think we needed that versatility. Our last coffee table was too big for the space and the boys couldn’t help themselves but leap from the couch to the coffee table to the chair, since everything was so close together. I was worried something would break, so I decided I just needed to rearrange things. We still have that table, but it’s no longer an inviting place to jump.
It’s small, but I really like it. I think the yellow rug really makes this room fun. The photos on the wall are from a few photo shoots we had done with Tabitha Sherrell…and since I just received a CD of our most recent shoot (from July!)… I have plans on getting some more recent photos up! But…so far so good! :)
