Kelly has started another session of "Show Us Your Life" and this week she is focusing on living rooms.
My living room is still in a semi state of disarray, but it is getting much better. I guess that is good seeing as we have been in the house for a little over one month now.
Here is a picture of the living room that we were sent along with the MLS listing. It is a big open room with tall ceilings that leads directly into the kitchen. I love that because when (or if, at this point) we have company I will be able to be part of the action, even if I'm in the kitchen.
Here is the living room from the front door with our furniture. As you can see, there are no window treatments. These windows are floor to ceiling (almost 9 feet tall) and I think that the transoms add so much. I haven't figured out a way to add window treatments to them without covering them up. Please let me know if you have any suggestions :)
We are also having problems deciding what to do about lamps. We have floated the furniture to the middle of the room but there are not any outlets on the floor. We have talked about hiring an electrician to come in and install lamps, but that hasn't been a priority just yet. I would say that at some point we will do that. Drew also thinks we need a new (bigger) tv but I think he's crazy! HAHA!
And lastly, here's the living room from the side. Sorry about the laundry basket in the floor but that is definitely real life for us :) Anyway, we bought a new rug to go along with the new couches and tables that we bought. I am please with it! You can also see that the computer desk is in the corner. The living room is huge and the desk is pretty small so I think that it looks ok in that corner.
