The only problem is that I never really envisioned a sofa, loveseat, and oversized chair in our family room. I really don't think it's a big enough room. But we rearranged and made it work...and it did work...for a while. Until the "rearranging bug" bit me again one morning, which is constantly happening!! And I convinced my wonderful hubby to yet again move some furniture around. He doesn't question anymore, just goes with it! We dragged that big, comfy chair into our master bedroom and I went to town decorating and accessorizing.
The outcome...I think I love it! First of all, my kiddos now have more floor space to wrestle, run, and play on in the family room. They aren't trapped by furniture. I also think it opens up the space and makes it appear biggier and sunnier...hee hee! But the best reason of all is that I now have a cozy spot for ME! I had no idea how much I would love having a corner in our bedroom to escape to for even five minutes to read a few pages from a book, enjoy some quiet time, sip on a mug of hot cocoa, or just put my feet up for a few minutes. It's not in the middle of the family room anymore, so it feels much more peaceful and comfortable where it's at. I love it!! My conclusion is that everyone needs to have a spot in their house to get cozy, relax and maybe put their feet up for even five minutes!! Now, go look around your house and make sure you have a spot just like that for you!
