I’m discovering that Winter time poses an additional challenge for me, besides just trying to get through the short, dark cold days. The lack of daylight hours that I am home has proven difficult in trying to get photos for blogging. My photography needs all the help it can get, so when the sun was shining recently I took advantage and snapped some pictures around the house of areas that I have not shared yet. I did show you the Odd Corner in the Living Room, so I thought it was time to share the rest of the living room.
Below is the view of the living room from the odd corner. The kitchen is off to the left, the foyer is the opening in the middle, and the view on the right is into the guest room.
This is the view standing at the patio door. Our living room is heavily used since it is the central part of our home.
Overall, the room is decorated pretty simply. I always think it feels better with some fresh flowers. I’ve gotten a lot of use out of my spray painted vase.
I had the sectional before we got married, so its been around for a while. I’ve already added extra poly-fil to the back cushions to give it a little more cushion. At some point, we’ll get a new couch, but I think we’ll have to replace it with another sectional, since the corner of it is where Puddy spends a lot of his time.
I had to close the curtains on the patio door to get the picture below since it was so sunny. This angle shows you the dining room, the kitchen bar and a sliver of the breakfast room in the background. I love that we get such warm sunlight in the hub of our home.
As we are beginning to consider a new couch, do you have any recommendations? Should we stick to a sectional? Or, is there other furniture we should consider for a better layout?
