Identity Crisis.

Do you think it's odd that I keep changing my living room around? I think I've been doing this since, like, the third grade. I'd tell my mum I had a fever (try rubbing the thermometer between you palms and then quickly cramming it under your tongue prior to mum entering the room) and stay home from school. Eventually I would get bloody bored laying there, supposedly very ill, so I would then, quite seriously visualize a new room in my fevered mind, and then go about taking apart the room, moving the furniture into my vision. And wow - instant gratification. Loved it!

I still do it, only in perfectly fine health. It is something I've come to believe, I'll always do. It's pretty fun. I highly suggest it. As opposed to moving, which I also do just for the absolute fun of challenging myself with a new place. An expensive hobby.













Here's the latest living room. Rico feels it really opens up the room. And the sofa feels much cozier closer to the fireplace. For now.

I love your home more and more with each change. I too feel the need to change things up. I am glad I live in a single family home because often my most inspirational moments come late at night. Neighbors sharing walls would not be happy!

Cheers,

This has much better flow. It's ver airy and inviting.

My mom always made us rotate bedrooms when I was a kid. She loves doing that. And my cousin would rearrange her bedroom anytime she got spanked. I guess it worked off the adrenaline.

I love the new layout... it truly is airy...
Any changes in the bathroom yet? (I think you were planning a color change?)
