There isn’t much to see in our living room, but I haven’t posted anything about it since moving in. The wall color was already Gobi Desert by Behr when we moved in. (I used the same color in the kitchen and den for continuity on the first floor) Our furniture from the old house is spread thin around here, so this room looks a little bare. The room is a little difficult to figure out a perfect layout because of doorway and window placements. Also, the only switched outlet is on the wall where the couch is (there is no overhead lighting in this room).
The chairs were cheap finds on Craigslist years ago and, until his recent job change, had been in Bradley’s office at work. The only new pieces in here so far are the the Eye of the Needle hexagonal side tables which I found at Tuesday Morning, but had to paint the bases silver to cover the colorful, chipped-look they originally had.
Here is a shot of what the tables looked like before (the smallest one is still in our master bedroom):
For now, I have my eye out for a good deal on a rug and a coffee table for this room. I haven’t figured out how I want to stage the front of this room because of the large windows and opening to the foyer.
