The Change Up

We've now been homeowners for nearly a year!  Thankfully, we are finished with all of the renovations, but now it's time to decorate and settle in.  Our living room was designed for a family in the early 1950s (read: no television or cable).  Since we are the second owners, we had to install the cable in 2011!!!  How is that even possible?!  Anyway, we decided on a location based on our big TV, of course.  Here's how it's happening now...
It's easy to see that the front door opens directly into the chair!!  The TV sits on a 2' high pine stand and is usually tilted so I can see from my spot on the couch--nearest the wall.  The long, narrow room doesn't allow for the TV to go on the wall behind the couch because it is just too far away from everything.  Hence the reason it is now the "hallway" to the real hallway.

Even though we aren't exchanging gifts this year, we opted for a new living room instead.  Ok, that may be my plan... In reality, we are downsizing our TV--could it be?!  It won't be the center of the universe?!  Here is the plan for the new layout...

We have a narrow stretch of wall between the front door and the dining room.  The TV will go above the small cabinet, which may or may not stick around.  :)  And maybe the couch, too!  Now I'm crossing my fingers the wall mount and the Power Bridge are easy enough for Philip to figure out...  More to come later on that.

PS, is perfect for room layouts!!! 


  1. Oooh, that 2nd layout looks great! Can't wait to see it all finished!

  2. Excited to see how this all looks once you're done! Lucky you getting hubby to "downsize" the tv... B would never ever ever agree to that!
