Around here not much changes on the inside of my house… occasionally, a table gets moved or walls get painted. But one thing that changes with the seasons is the placement of furniture.
For the living room during the winter months the couch and love seat are placed along the walls pulled in just a little bit from the windows to stave off the cool air. But away for the wood stove to be comfy and safe.
But in the summer time… I generally move the furniture on a diagonal. Slightly rotated clockwise…not too much to clog up the entry. (we have no foyer or formal entry) But I move the furniture enough for the window A/C to be used and air flow to be properly managed.
That is how it is with an overstuffed couch and loveseat.
Now… with the upcoming arrangement… we’ll be having a smaller less FILLING set up.
A couch and chairs.
I’ve never had just a couch and chairs in this house. I’m not sure how it will play out.
I was feeling a tad sluggish and under the weather today… not getting much accomplished--- so I was looking at different arrangements… Our furniture now is plaid (neutral colors) the Settee or Couch that I’m covering is going to be neutral also…in fact, I’m going to have to do something with the curtains or they will blend in too much. They are drop cloth curtains…so an easy change up. It will probably be a FREE AND EASY CHANGE UP TOO. :)
These are cottage living spaces that I found appealing today. (you may click on any of these photos below to take you to the source)
Neutral colored couch with colored pillows…
Again…neutral furnishings with touches of color (also love the warm woods in the home) if you’re unfamiliar with this one…it is Cindy’s home @ Oakview Cottage (what is not to love there?)
I chose this cottage photo…because of the green rug.
You may have seen my rug in my own top two photos above… or you may have read about my Stinky- Free Cycle Rug here. Not getting rid of the rug. So will be working some type of neutral cottage magic around my couch and my rug. Need all the pointers I can get! :)
I chose this photo…because of the mismatched furniture grouping.
I will definitely be having mismatched furniture…
So I sat around and did a little day dreaming today… looking forward to tinkering around the living room!
