So, I had several requests to see the whole living room as up to now I’ve only shown the bits and pieces that have been ready, I’m not saying I’m “ready” now, decorating is an ongoing process, but I’ve at least painted the ceiling and walls.
What you see above is the view when you enter the living room via those steps where I have yet to rip the lino out of. To the far left (not seen) is the kitchen and then the dining table and across from there the seating/TV area and my blog spot.
That tray on one of the cube stools is also the coffee table. I wheel it in front of the Galaxy chairs when I need somewhere to put my tea cup. Or wine glass for that matter. Needless to say I need to find a coffee table of some sort.
Right next to blogging desk is the Expedit book case and the opening to the right is where my bedroom nook is. The chair is on a small wall that separates the bedroom nook from the stairs that go up.
Here you can see the bedroom nook beyond the Expedit. As you can see the Galaxy chairs are still in their original pink outfits. I do plan to some day revamp them but for now I’m going with the pink.
Yup, there’s my nook. I have curtain parking behind the wall behind that chair. I’m not loving the curtain visible through the “window” though so I’ll either board it up from behind and adding shelves OR if I get planning permission I’m thinking of adding a wood burning fire on this wall. That would be so cool because I’d be able to see the fire from bed, from the dining table, kitchen and living area! It would be a 50 000 SEK (USD 7 000) expenditure though… I think I’ll start by applying for the planning permission before dreaming too much.
Here I am standing in the corner by the sofa window looking towards the stairs going up. As you can see these photos were taken before I painted the stairwell. Can’t wait for those railings to be painted white!
This is the view from the opposite side, from the foot end of the bed towards the seating area. That lamp hanging quite randomly is going, it’s just temporary until I find a good reading light for in between the Galaxies.
And that’s full circle, the left hand side of the sofa.
So, those of you who requested the grand tour of the living room, you’re welcome.
