The topic is RELATIONSHIPS.
Are you in a good relationship with your living room?
A living room that loves and hugs on you and your family will help any relationship issue, won’t it?
Think of it, pleasing place to go to celebrate victories, a comforting place to mourn losses, or a great spot that says GOOD MORNIN’ or WELCOME HOME.
I was working with a darling woman the other day; she is redoing her whole life, making a clean break and building a beautiful, new relationship, one that will be fulfilling this time. (The last one was not so fulfilling).
So, what does this have to do with decorating and redesigning a living room?
Take the living room test.
It’s easy – go into your living room and look around and then go to a mirror, if there is a smile on your face – then everything is just right, but if there is a frown – it is a bad relationship.
To fix the pain, it may be time to start over…
Layer 1 is the room itself – doors, windows, floor, ceiling, etc. (the givens for this conversation).
If the room itself, LAYER 1, is the bone structure, then LAYER 2 is the muscle.
Layer 2 is the UPHOLSTERY and it is where we begin for all of you in a BLR (BAD LIVINGROOM RELATIONSHIP)
– SOFAS, CHAIRS, LOVESEATS, SECTIONALS (more on sectionals later)
The largest piece in the room is generally the sofa, and it can be very bossy. Pick the cover with care, after all, like your mother always said, a tiger cannot change it’s stripes and neither can your sofa.
Think about the number of seats you need, LOTS of people or just a few? LOTS of people and the room needs to be very intentional, and planned. One to two people everyday much more flexibility.
Five people everyday – prescription: sofa, loveseat, two comfortable chairs, or two sofas and two chairs, or a sectional (more on sectionals later).
Build a fulfilling relationship with your living room; make it “just like a picture out of a magazine”.
