It's not a huge space, but it's super cozy and has enough room for two couches and plenty of floor space for projects. I think, come winter and mountain snow storms, we'll be getting this fireplace in working order, but right now, its just a hole in the wall. One thing about living in a 90 year old house in the oldest neighborhood in Chattanooga (and Tennessee) for that matter, is that there are a lot of, um, quirks...The foundation is kind of really wonky and if you put a marble at one end of the living room, it has about 6 different ways that it can roll. But I love that our house isn't perfect. I love everything is a little off kilter. It's fun!
If you haven't noticed, Doug and I are something of collectors. I sometimes say hoarders, but that's not true, we just like weird old things. We like what we like and it's apparent when you walk in our house. There is no sign of minimalism here - except our bedroom, the only room in the house with nothing hanging on the walls (except a gun rack and a mirror) and barely any furniture, sometimes there's clothes on the floor and a million dog toys, but after having bedrooms with lots of wall hangings and painted walls and all that, I prefer a white, quiet bedroom. No TV, no clock, it's nice...Anyways!
We have two couches, both vintage. We had a third, but it was falling to pieces to we scraped it. This plaid couch is itchy as all get out, so I don't sit on it much, but the green one is so comfortable! We got the green one at the habitat for humanity restore and the plaid one we got from a church for free. We helped them deliver a bunch of stuff to a charity, and we got to keep what we wanted. Such a sweet deal.
So, there is a peek into our living room. I want to do a studio tour soon, when it's clean, I guess. Ha! This is my favorite room, so I did it first. I hope you liked seeing this space!
