The living room ceiling is painted and I’ve begun painting the walls. Maybe I’m halfway finished.
I started thinking about how I’m going to set up the furniture now that there’s no front door to consider.
I can put furniture anywhere I want. We used to have two matching loveseats in the living room but they’re destined to stay in the new conservatory so I’ll need a new sofa of some kind.
I don’t want to spend too much money on one at this time so I’m considering the Ektorp by Ikea.
Maybe I should use a traditional size sofa and put it facing the fireplace.
Or maybe I should get a sectional corner unit and let it both face the fireplace and the large seascape I added here.
I am keeping the blue chairs
and the Pottery Barn glass coffee table. And the rug seen above and below.
I have started a living room Pinterest board so I can look at the things I already have along with the inspiration of other ideas.
In addition to various side tables, lamps and a secretary which may or may not stay in the space, I also have pastel portraits of my son and me when we were the same age.
Would love you to weigh in on the sofa size/shape. And the color: light or dark?
Have you rearranged your furniture recently? Is it a regular habit?
