Rearranging Furniture

I am so delighted with the way my living room turned out. I really just moved some furniture around to help "balance out" the "wall that goes on forever" and removed some end tables. I find that I go through seasons in my life wherein I want to purge and simplify. I used to collect cobalt blue glass. I was so easy to buy for come birthday time but now my taste has changed and my style is sooooo very different... Here is the before picture
And now the after picture. By moving my curio cabinet next to the couch on the left, it gives the wall some balance and height. The curio mimics the window on the right. I never understand why builders only put one window on a wall that clearly calls for two. We have the same dilemna in our master bedroom.

My glass end tables used to set here with an oversized chair. I like this vignette much better. It is more shabby chic and certainly more inviting.

Here is where I moved the overstuffed chair. I think it fits here much nicer.

The fireplace is going to look awesome when I get my new (old) mantle. My birthday is next Sunday and I hope to use the money I get from my mom & dad to pick it up. That will add such a richness and finality to the room.Thank you to all my blog friends and visitors who lovingly gave their input and advice about what to do with that wall. Rosemary, you were definitely the motivating force behind the arrangement. Thank you.

My next post will include a makeover on some rather dark frames that I have given new life to.

Love & blessings,

Debbie Kay
