Presto Change-o

We got bored. Our furniture had been in the same place for...eight whole months! Blech.
Mr. Beau R. Ing.

So we reversed the dining table - moving it from the west side of the room to the east. Then we squished the sofa and slipper chairs into the middle, so they surround the fireplace.

We're mimicking the arrangement we saw when our friends Sara and Brian lived in a tiny little jewel box of a house in Echo Park. Cram in your seating! They're your friends and they want to sit closer to you.

Last, we made a little welcome-y seating area by the front door. So now when you enter the house there is a little fake foyer, and we can invite people to come in and sit down without walking past our dining room table. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I'm not sure why I think this is better, but I do. Maybe it's just the relief of the furniture boredom that feels nice.

This is what you are doing instead of being at the AHA with me in Boston.... lame.

Looks absolutely beautiful! I think, based on photos at least, this is my favorite of your houses.
