Third Time’s a Charm… Right?

I mentioned a long time ago that we rearranged the living room… again.  Because I’m pretty sure you can’t picture my living room right off the top of your head here is a look back at the old layout and below is the new.living room 7We moved the armoire and television next to the fireplace where the love seat used to be. It’s not the ideal location for it because both the armoire and fireplace are fighting to be the focal point in the room but we have plans to fix that problem. In the bottom right corner of the picture above you can see the corner of the love seat.  This new layout creates a much more intimate sitting area and also brings the seating closer to the television for optimal viewing!

At first I was leery of having the seating so close. I had always loved the open concept of our living room.  Now, I like the new arrangement better because I feel like it doesn’t leave any piece of furniture just hanging out by itself.  The whole layout works together as a group.
living room 6Although we have lived with this furniture arrangement for six months it’s still a work in progress.  Which explains why our gallery wall is behind the armoire and why our armoire is sill on sliders for easy moving.  I can’t wait to share some of these ideas and plans with y’all in the coming weeks!

ML and I stayed way too late way too many nights figuring out where would be the best place for this little guy.  I am so happy with our decision.  I love sitting here in the afternoons, with my cup of tea or coffee, blogging away.  It’s nice being able to look outside, (listen to Buddy cry like a broken record), and work while Noah is napping.

Looking at these pictures I really need to get that painting hung above the desk.  All that negative space is bothering me but like I said we haven’t done anything for the last six months.living room 2 Not much changed in this corner… the giant screen still hides all our paint.  Isn’t it funny how no matter how hard you try everybody ends up with a corner they pile junk in?living room 4The gallery wall is still behind the armoire.  We want to move it to this wall though.living room 8Our main hold up is that we aren’t sure we like such a low bench there.  I think a taller more functional storage piece would look great there.  So until we get it all figured out there probably won’t be any more holes going into the wall.

So what about you?  Any major room changes lately?  Do you move stuff and then wait months to decide if you like it?  Which room have you rearranged the most in your house?  Let me know.  I would love to hear your answers.

    It’s looking great! I like that painting you need to hang above the desk. It goes really well in that room.
    We currently only have a sofa and two tables in our living room and they haven’t moved since we put them in there, lol. We also don’t really go in there…it needs a lot of work! We have rearranged our sunroom quite a few times; usually to accommodate a new baby item! I need to move things around in our guest room. Hopefully I can get to that sooner than later.
    Good luck finishing things up in your living room!
