And here begins the house tour! Our house was built in 1908. I love old houses but they do not come without weird quirky things. But I think that is precisely why I like them. So much character!
For the most part, the living room has stayed the same as a year ago when I last posted. We did add the blue chair, the black lamp and a few things to the shelves. On my list of things to do when come back from the summer is to add more pictures to the wall and to change the layout. It's way too symmetrical and it's driving me nuts just looking at it!
We also had the hardest time figuring out what to do with the TV. We have a fireplace in the room, but it doesn't even have a flue so we didn't want to use it. We thought about hanging it above the fireplace, but then it would be too high...We thought about putting it on the wall where the bookshelf is, but then it would interrupt the flow of traffic to the kitchen. We even thought about putting it in a corner in between our kitchen and bathroom on a corner TV stand, but that just wouldn't work either. We finally decided to block the fireplace with the TV, and I like the placement for the most part. I won't be showing it though because who really wants to see my TV?!
And yes, this coat rack is definitely the Leaning Tower of Pisa after removing the coats. But just look how cool my front windows are!
