Thanks For All The Advice



You guys are always so good with advice and suggestions.   I think you are all right that I am more bored than anything, but I did make one tiny change for now.   I did move furniture all over, however there really aren't too many possibilities for arrangements.  I think the next change will be to make some white drapes for next spring and summer.  For now just moving a couple of chairs did make a change in the feel and appearance.

This is how the room looked before.


And the dining area before.


Several suggested that I remove the small end table and move the white chair to the corner.  Done, and I really think it looks good. 


The white chair brings some light to that end of the room, and I also added the throw to the leather chair to lighten it up a bit.


Putting the darker, smaller chair next to the sofa opens this end up a little bit more also.  Removing a couple of dining chairs is a great option, I just don't have anywhere to put them.  Maybe when I can remove a few things from other rooms I can find a place.

The most advice I got was to get out of the house and go have lunch with the girls.  We are going to do just that tomorrow.  One of our blogger friends is in town from Wisconsin and several of us are going to meet up for lunch and a little shopping and lots of talking and laughing.  I can't wait.  I will definitely take my camera and lots of pics to share.

Thanks for the kind words and suggestions about the room.  I really appreciate all the input.

  8. Marty, I have a brown couch and love seat with warm brown coffee and end tables...so, I know what you mean about it can be a bit dark. Your changes gives me some ideas for my own living room on how to bring some light colors in. Enjoy watching all of your change outs you do. Your rooms turned out great can't wait to see what you do next.

  12. You did a beautiful job, Marty! I know how you feel, getting bored with the way things look but being challenged in how to rearrange. I have too many windows so it is always difficult to move furniture, so it's always quite the same. Your living room looks pretty though, you did a nice job!

    XO,

  14. Isn't is amazing how a simple change can open up a space? Exchanging the place of the chairs did give your dining area more breathing room. Looks great!

  18. Changes look great and lunch out with the girls is just what the doctor ordered. My only suggestion is maybe move the throw to the other arm of the dark leather chair...I think it will help carry the light color from the sofa over to the white chair better...kind of spreading the light colors throughout. Anyway, just a suggestion. Enjoy your lunch tomorrow.
