Changing it up!

Well, we've made a few changes in our living room. Will had his "glorious" (his words) bookshelves built on the far walls in the room. They look so great. We thought Will had SO many books but, his books filled maybe half so it looks a little bare right now.

We also did a little funiture moving (Will's suggestion) and it really created a new look for the living room. It gives the room a cozy environment. The furniture layout before was just very typical, and I don't like 'typical' it's an ugly word when it comes to designing.

So here's before....

Here's the new look....there WILL be more books over time.

There's a sofa table behind...the sofa. Didn't get a good shot of that, but it's there.

What do ya'll think? Is it working or no? Do I need a rug? (I think I already know the answer to that one)

looks awesome nikki! i seriously love it. I don't know the first thing about design but i don't really think you need a rug. I like that the ottoman is kind of a focal point and it seems like a run would draw your eyes away from it. But I bet you could pick out an awesome rug of the perfect size that would tie everything together beautifully :-)

Beautiful! I love all it.

It all looks like it was perfectly purchased over time and that everything has a story!

In love with the fabric for the curtains. Were they ready-made or did you make them?

I don't think you need a rug. It doesn't look like it's missing to me.
