Playing Decorator

Today I am playing decorator for my mom's house.

We all have "that spot" that we never know what to do with.
As a background, this is the first room you see when you come in the door. It sees into the kichen, dining room, and TV room. There is also a fireplace in the corner. Because of all this, it has been hard to work with. We have tried sofas, a piano, and chairs in the past. But it never seems right.

This time I thought about what the room is used for. Usually it ends up being a conversation room and usually those conversations are with women. With that in mind, I decided to play decorator. I do this often. Sometimes for rooms that don't exist. So thanks for "lending" me a real room, mom.

I tried to focus some on incorporating circular elements since EVERYTHING in the room is square now. I also played with mixing texture which always adds dimension. And of course function was the priority. Nice, comfy seating for all the chisme (gossip in spanish), a pouf for a foot stool, a small table for the drinks, and a coat rack which we have never had but I've decided we need :)

I was less worried about color because that can be changed for any room but I do happen to like it for the room.

So, there you have it.
