A Rearrange

One of my favorite things to do is rearrange. I am always trying to making a room, or a part of my house, flow better/work better for us. About a month or so ago, I shared our living room in our new house. I liked how it was set up. Then one morning, the wheels started turning…it started with the corner in the room. It had a coat rack in it. But I thought it would look good with a chair. A chair that could sort of operate as a place for people to put on shoes or throw their purses and coats on when they come visit. So, I rearranged. And lived with it for two days before I went at it again and this is what I ended up with.

I have yet to move the pictures over the couch because I wanted to make sure I liked this arrangement first. But, a week in, I still really like it and need to get on moving those pictures. I love how open the room feels and I love how cozy the fireplace looks with chairs on either side.

Eventually I would like to put a larger chair in the corner where the wood desk chair is. And also hang a thing or two on the wall there. Also, the bookshelf in the other corner will probably get switched out for a standing desk for Ian at some point. Oh, and I need to find a fireplace screen so we can actually have fires this winter…which I am really excited about. And if we are really talking down the road, I would eventually like to do something with the tv console area. But I have no clue what direction I want to go with that yet.

Now to keep working on organizing other things…like all upstairs. I decided to put Connor and Isla in a room together and move Callum into his own room. Now mine and Ian's room practically looks empty. And I still need to finish the swap of all the kids stuff. But, so far, this arrangement is working out quite well. So well, in fact, that I kind of wish I had done it a lot sooner.
