Here's the couch and it's new owner. Obviously, I would like this to look a little more put together but this is my life. My grandmother made the rug. It doesn't totally match but my grandma made it so it stays.
The lovely entertainment area. And the reason why I incorporated black into the decor. The globe is my grandma's and when she moved out of her house she couldn't take it with her so I got dibs on it. It was really the only thing I wanted. The sea of black under the library table? Our DVD collection. Disgusting. We could probably buy a new car for what we have in DVD's. Before you rent anything, please check with us. We like to share.
And, the piece de resistance--------the TV. The reason why we cannot move the recliner. I like it on a wall better than on a stand but it doesn't give me much to work with on the mantle. The guitars are for the rock band and guitar hero. I only have one living area so this is how I have tried to make it work for everyone. We actually use the fireplace quite a bit (my husband says it's because I won't turn the heat on - not true). When we moved to AZ I had resigned myself to the fact that we wouldn't have a fireplace and we probably wouldn't need it. But this house has 2 - one in the living room and one in the master bedroom. What a nice surprise. The throw pillows are from TJ Maxx.
