Inside Play

I've shoveled all the snow I can for now.  We finally have the front drive open  (thanks Michael!) ...but more snow expected!!  Hard to believe.

With nothing else to do I moved furniture around and rehung some art work.  Here's the new look for the family room.  The boys have gotten so tall all of a sudden that territorial disputes broke out on the love seat I had near the TV.  So I moved the big sofa closer to the TV.  Don't laugh, I did it alone, using the boys' skate boards under the sofas.
I angled the love seat and moved the bigger wing chair with its footstool.  The lighting is better for reading in both places.
This print that was on the mantle is a better fit between the TV and the china cabinet.
The art from the kitchen looks good against the brick fireplace.
The smaller chair can be pulled in front of the fireplace with ease.

Did you notice the huge orchid plant in the pictures above?  My sister gave me a heads up that the left over orchids from Valentine's day were on sale at Safeway ... $15!

  1. Nice Pics!
    We are all aware that the sofas are an integral part of everyone at home. The Sofa is where we can relax on television to see the place and sit down to entertain guests. There is a large absolute amount of different types of sofas to choose from these days. Decorating our house with nice paint, wallpapers, lights and curtains is not enough without a nice Italian leather sofa set. There are many choices of leather sofas.

  2. Hi Pat, When moving around the furniture gives the room a new face. I still do it with some smaller pieces, otherwise I am very much restricted, like inbuilt bookcases, many tall, from floor to ceiling windows. What I am really missing is window sills. Your home looks beautiful with lots of lovely touches. I hope the snow will soon disappear. I guess you had enough now!
