Home Keeping: New Living Room Arrangement
We haven't painted the master bedroom yet, but this weekend I decided to try a new furniture layout. This was a great opportunity also to vacuum under furniture, since it was all moving around, and mop the wood floors. I used Murphy's Oil Soap and added some Orange essential oils. It smelled wonderful!
I went for a bit of diagonal placement of furniture. Sometimes it is just what's needed to create enough room to move around the space well. Also I like to create cozy, conversational spaces. That was more important to me than whether every seat can see the television. Know what? They can't, but this chair and the loveseat move easily and we've already done that to watch a movie.
Last evening we gathered here with friends and laughed and laughed. Oh, my goodness. There IS good medicine in laughter!
I've been moving books around too. Some have moved to a bookcase in my room and some I moved downstairs to those bookcases.
I also changed out my tea cups.
Aren't they pretty? Old Country Roses variations. We used to have a Royal Doulton outlet near us and I could get these sets for half price of the outlet price at the right time of the year!
Sarah made this arrangement the other day. Pear blossoms and Dandelions. She has a heart for beauty and I love the way she brings it into our home.
So there you have it. The latest re-arrangement in my living room. I'm liking it very much, and it reminds me that I want to look for a rug for this space. Everything is looking very brown, furniture wise. I guess I'll just have to make sure that colorful personalities fill this room!
