Welcome to the living room

Posted by laurie on April 4, 2012

When we moved into this house, the living room was split not into a dining area and living area as it is now, but rather into two empty living areas where you could hear the ocean if you leaned against the wall. It went nicely with the shag carpet in the kitchen. That awful stonework around the fireplace extended up to the ceiling. I lobbied Phillip to cover it with the wall and mantle so it wouldn’t look like we lived in a ski chalet. I’ve probably told you all this, so please feel free to skip ahead. But the best thing we ever did to this living room was to buy the leather couch and loveseat. I believe we’ve had them for about six years now, and they still look great (no scratch marks despite beagle digging), except for a bit of sagging where those two gargoyles are perched. But they’re such cute gargoyles that we have learned to accept the sagging.
