When we last visited my living room in August, I’d arrived at the idea of angling the couch (loveseat I think?) in the room as well as the 5×8 rug that goes with it. I was really pleased with how it worked out; angling the couch makes it possible to see both the TV (this is important) AND out the window (also important and something I’d wanted for a long time but couldn’t figure out how to do in the room). Prior to now I just don’t think I would have had the confidence/inspiration/creativity/whatever to do this kind of arrangement.
So the other day, inspiration again hit and I did the same thing with the square dining table and its 5×8 rug on their half of the “space”. This too really worked out. I didn’t lose anything in the bargain and in fact more of the rug shows, which is nice.
Basically, I’m pretty satisfied with how I have things but there is always room for “tweaking” (I am mad for tweaking stuff). One small change I made by the couch was to swap out the baby blue lamp (it went to a better spot) for one in the red family. The only thing I still want to improve is the table between the couch and chair; it’s a makeshift one (literally I made the top and put it on a smaller table). A round end table would look better I think. Hopefully one will turn up in my “travels” eventually.
