I treat the rooms I live in with care, the windows are small & the walls almost bare...

This blog is only written for my own selfish reasons (well, aren't they all?). I'm looking for Heidi & anyone else who cares to weigh in on the subject to suggest how we should arrange the furniture after we put the floor in this weekend. I'd like to put the tv stand either to the left or to the right of the sliding doors 'cause that's where the cable outlet is, but I could probably hide the cord somehow if necessary. We have too black endtables (not shown) & one slate endtable (like the coffee table in the picture) & a slate coffee table. We also have a 6' high black book shelf (okay, cd's, who am I kidding?) & a 4' high black book shelf, one full length couch, one loveseat & one chair. We have a fairly large mirror with black frame & quite a few black & white pictures with black frames. Eventually we are planning on getting an area rug (any thoughts on color/style?). The window shade/curtain is tan, almost the same color as the couches. Whatever guidance you'd like to give would surely be appreciated.

This is the weekend for the floors, right! Have fun and send pictures. I'm not good at decorating advice, sorry!

Hmmm... If you put the TV to the right of the doors then you could angle the sofa on the opposite corner, and the loveseat on a 90 degree angle to that (angled in the corner where you used to have the TV.) Without the measurements it's kind of hard, but I think that will work. If you want to send me dimensions of the room and furniture I can draw it out for you.
Have fun!

upon reading for the second time I found "Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum" on the top 5 list--odd---how odd
