What day is it? HUMP DAAAY YEAH!! (in my awesome gieco camel voice). Sorry I just had to go there. Best. Commercial. Ever.
So my rearrangitis has flared up again, my friends. Our family room no longer looks like this
Let me explain guys. You see, I am nomadic by nature. I crave change. Honestly, I blame my parents. I was an Army brat growing up. We never lived in one place longer than about 4 years. Then upon graduation, I too joined the military and thus the moving continued. I learned at a very early age to embrace change, so now that I'm settled in one place its really really difficult for me not to get bored easily. Unfortunately, I've become dependent upon change.
I love our home, our community, and our town, and we will definitely be here for a while. Since I cant physically change where I'm at, my solution is to change my surroundings. I just feel rally really bad for Naomi. She's so amazing and just goes with me on it. Nothing surprises her anymore.
Anyway, yesterday I thought it may be a good idea to "just for the heck of it" see what it would look like if I moved the game table into the front room.
*none of these pictures have been edited. They came straight from the camera into this post. just taking you guys through my thought process visually*
We have already dedicated the front room as the entertaining/game room so the table was going to end up in here eventually anyway. I actually really like. The scale is perfect.
There's an empty space between the windows where I'm planning to place a MCM console table and use it as a bar and to hold my record player.
I'm thinking something very very similar to Cassie's beauty she just revamped.
My oh my its beautiful. I just love how her room is coming together. Those moody walls are just so lovely.
This is what our front/entry room looks like as of 2 minutes ago
With the table relocated there was the issue of what to do with the space it used to be in? I decided to move the desk over to that area.
Yes, I know I JUST created a cute office nook and took pretty pictures and posted it and everything. Don't be too upset with me guys. Its actually quite nice and I have a bit more room since its not tucked in the corner. I brought in my goodwill rescue chair. I'm patiently looking for the perfect fabric to have it reupholstered.
Now there's just the issue of what I like to call the "landing strip" aka that random space behind the couch
Some of you may be wondering why I don't just move the couch back up against the wall? Well, two reasons. First, there'd be way too much space between the couch and the tv if I do. We have a 42 inch ( I believe) and the optimal distance between the couch and the screen for that size is around 63 inches. I used this article as a reference in case you want to give it a try. And Second, I just don't like it.
Our couch where it is is 100 inches away, which is still a lot further than whats optimal, but this feels like a good distance. Not too close, not to far.
The baking cup art also found a new home in the hall.
Our home is a constant evolution and I like it that way. I think that's the beauty of it all....to keep tweaking and tweaking until you get it just right.
So, have you been rearranging lately? Until next time...
