The living room looked especially small, which was my biggest concern. When we walked in for the first time, it looked like one teeny tiny little box. Thankfully I kept reminding myself that rooms always look smaller without furniture - strange concept I know, but it's very true.
Here is the box I'm talking about...
Could that really be the same room as this.... ???
Woah! What a difference! It's pretty amazing how some thoughtful furniture placement can really make a difference. This living room is less than half the size of our previous home, but you really don't feel like it when your in the space. We also have the same amount of seating as well (minus one chair that really wasn't used). You can't tell from these photos, but our living room opens up to the dining room and office. I think that's also why the space looks much bigger than it actually is. The room is also taken over by these massive windows which let some amazing natural light into the space. As you can tell... it made it quite difficult to take photos with all of that light coming in! That's what I get for having a six year old camera!
Anyways - I hope you enjoy my new living room as much as I do. And now for some eye candy!
I will try to write up a post of where to find my items in the room. More to come on that later:) Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Happy Tuesday!
