The living room is on the ground floor of The Glade. There’s no entrance hall (which I would really love). The original floorplan is open so the living room just flows into the dining room.
The living room has a working fireplace and lots of windows and doorways. The paint color back in 2011 was a warm yellow/tan color that I still liked even after 14 years. (We painted the new kitchen something similar.)
A wall has replaced the doorway on the right of the fireplace that used to go into the kitchen.
The two photos directly above are of the living room taken from the same orientation. Everything was a little more crowded when all the furniture was in the living room. Now the matching loveseats are in the conservatory and an Ikea sofa has taken their place. The chairs are the same ones. The antique oak chest of drawers between the loveseats is also in the conservatory.
In the opposite corner there used to be a secretary desk and Windsor chair which were tucked next to the front door.
Now the door has been exchanged with the center window and opens in the other direction.
We love all the changes made to The Glade now that we’ve got most of the rubble cleaned up.
We especially like the new placement of the front door.
Sidebar: Over the past 5 years I think I’ve become a better photographer.
Are you planning any radical changes?
