We spend most of our Sundays, lounging in our living room area. And it looks like this most of the time, cushions scattered here and there, and everything looking like someone just had a tumble around. It's considered quite clean already- usually we have balls and toys strewn around as well! =)
It is my favourite space in our place for a couple of reasons:
#1. It's a great place to lounge, hang out and watch tv. On days when I need to, I just sprawl out on the floor. When we have visitors, people just plonk themselves down on the floor if the daybed is taken. Just an easy place to relax!
#2. I am in love with this Indian day bed we bought off craigslist. It's in great condition and the couple who sold it to us were seriously sad to see it go. Someone gave it to them but they just didn't have the space for it. I got it for a STEAL!
Only problem is I need to get the cushion upholstered, but haven't gotten round to it. So bed-sheets from ikea will have to do now. *grinz*
#3. The built in display area! What's not to love about having some space to put some of your favourite knick-knacs? All of the frames were gifts and really shows off my kookiness...
Yup, pics from my childhood. I've had these 2 pics by my bed-stand as a girl for years, and it was only natural to find a home for them in my new place. I'm sentimental like that. Hubby doesn't have many pics of himself as a child, so mine hog our space for now!
#4. Finally, there's our priceless artwork on display. This series of paintings called 'Footprints for daddy', was a birthday gift we put together for my hubby. Yup, it's the boys footprints.
It's really a combination of not being able to afford the sort of art we'd really like to own as well as not having enough time shop for a birthday present. Anyhow, Mr Eveel loved the gift and the boys and I had so much fun with paints!
If you're going to point out that the canvas on the right is a little crooked- i knoooow....and it's oh-kaaay...really!
Hope you've enjoyed our living room...next up will be our dining area....stay tuned! =)
