Christmas switcheroo


If you are a regular you will remember my furniture rearranging escapade a couple of months ago.
My living room went from this...


to this...


Which I hated and changed to this...



I bravely solicited comments and the consensus was naught.
 There were so many different points of view that I just decided to leave it. I nearly killed myself moving all of the furniture myself. 
I had this nagging desire to move the sofa back under the painting which I created and hand stretched expressly for that spot.
Last week I decided to try the one arrangement I had not yet tried and I had big, strong Mr. DesignduMonde to help me.  It was time because we had to accomodate the Christmas tree. It only took us 10 minutes.



I am not crazy about the bombe chest being crammed in the corner but I feel so much better with the sofa under the painting and I am in love with the creamy vignette created by the chairs, curtains and the tone on tone abstract I bought from my friend Kenneth.

I like it this way, the sofa was meant to be under that gorgeous painting, gives it more presence!

I like this better too. Just feels like there's more space to maneuver and it looks balanced. Looks wonderful.

I like it this way too Kerry, I love the tree by the entry, very welcoming and looking oh-so-pretty already!

I love the painting and the sofa being a larger piece than the individual chairs together stands up to it. Great spot for the tree, too, Kerry!

Yes, I like the scale of your gorgeous painting over the sofa. And that chest is divine!

You know I'm really loving your last arrangement the best and if you're feeling the need for a couch under the painting, I think you need to listen to that inner voice :) It's lovely!

You have such a beautiful room. I love the formal setting, i think Christmas trees in formal rooms are even more breathtaking.
