Living room itch.

Lately I have been having an itch to redo a room in our house. The room in my radar? The living room. Nothing is particularly wrong with the room, it's comfortable, but maybe a bit blah. With unlimited budget we would put in hardwood floors, but for now the carpet stays.

The room needs a little "oomph"! Right now there are paint chips about the room, I am trying to look at different colors at different times of the day. This is the first room people see if they come to our home, so it needs to feel welcoming.

I have even been dreaming of a big, comfy, ottoman for the middle of the room. In fact, I saw a couch set that came with one and was very tempted to go all out and REALLY redo the space. Darn that little budget!

Gratefully, the couches are holding up really well and still have many years of life left in them. The metal and glass tables are great at making the space look larger than it really is too. Really it will all just be about the paint, and maybe some art rearrangement. This itch must be scratched!


  1. Your furniture is actually very nice and I'm sure your paint job will look great! (I'd consider a bigger piece of art for over the sofa...)

  2. Agreed, the art that is there right now is a bit small. It was what we already had, but I have been looking around for something bigger. :)
