To make room for the Christmas tree, we rearranged the living room furniture and a surprising thing happened. We started using this room that we never used before, except when company came over. The sectional sofa that was once placed together as one long piece against the wall is now split into two pieces, arranged in an L-shape.
The room looked a lot bigger before, but the new arrangement is more welcoming, and creates a good conversation area. We may keep this arrangement after the Christmas decorations have been put away.
Once we get new flooring and a painting to go in the place of the Andy Warhol poster, this room will be finished.
