There's not a lot of different ways I can change around my living space. My chaise couch is pretty big, and only looks right on the wall you've always seen it on.
For some reason, after I hung the cow painting above the couch, I haven't been happy with what's at each end of the couch. I'm not sure why that is.
So I've been moving things about, and trying to figure out just what look it is that I'm trying to achieve.
I had two brown book shelves in my bedroom. So these got moved into the living space. I'm not showing you any photos because I'm just not that far yet.
I haven't been happy with the beige lamps somehow. So I'm trying to find a way to make myself happier with that choice, by working with what I have.
Of course you move one thing, lots of other things get moved as well. So I'm kind of at that point.
When you live in this size space, I think you're constantly trying to rework things so that you're more organized.
For me, it's so I can manage to find things!
Have you ever tried an arrangement where your couch is flanked on either side with book shelves?
It makes for an interesting look.
There's just something about this type look that appeals to me. So I'll be working on this the next few days.
If you're renting, like me, you can't do built-ins. So you try to achieve a look that is a compromise between what you'd do if you owned the space, and what you're willing to do while renting.
I love the above photo. I love the colors, the pieces of furniture, and the way it's all pulled together. It's very cohesive.
The one above is a little too sedate for me. Too pale. But I liked the concept, so I included it.
The above photo is kind of the look I will have. Book shelves on either side, and a painting over the couch.
The coffee table is far too modern for my tastes though.
I'll get it together this weekend hopefully, and will show you what I've got going next week.
Have a great weekend!
