|A black depressing end table|
Keeping all this in mind, Chris and I had a conversation at the table this afternoon about trying to make the room feel larger. Right now we have a coffee table in the middle of the room. I've on occasion moved it out to make more room, but always thought that Chris preferred it as our living room center piece. At lunch today he cleared up that assumption. He also would like to take it out to make more room, but thought that I liked it. Isn't it better to communicate these feelings? Well, now we both know the coffee table is going somewhere else!
The other thought we had was lightening up the colors of the furniture from black to white and then painting the walls a lighter color to make the space feel bigger.
So, I have a long check list of things to do to my living room. Oh, but I do love a list!! I set to work right away lightening the furniture in the room starting with one end table (the black monster above.)
