The living room ceiling is painted and I’ve begun painting the walls. Maybe I’m halfway finished.
Edgecomb Gray on the ceiling, Revere Pewter on the walls.
I started thinking about how I’m going to set up the furniture now that there’s no front door to consider.
The living room used to have 2 loveseats and 2 upholstered chairs set up so the front door which opened into the room on the right would not be blocked.
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.
The front door has been moved to the center of the wall near the fireplace and the loveseats are in the conservatory.
I don’t want to spend too much money on one at this time so I’m considering the Ektorp by Ikea.
Ikea’s Ektorp in either grey or beige would work in the living room.
Maybe I should use a traditional size sofa and put it facing the fireplace.
I’m not sure I like the blue chairs with their backs to the front door and the kitchen.
Or maybe I should get a sectional corner unit and let it both face the fireplace and the large seascape I added here.
The seascape is on the wall behind the blue chairs.
I am keeping the blue chairs
Blue living room chairs of which there are two.
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.
I’d like to hang both portraits on one wall looking at each other.
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?
