I love decorating magazines. Since we are building a house, I have been clipping pages of rooms I like - I keep them in a notebook separated by tabs for each room in the house. I then give the magazines to my nephew and his new wife so they can get ideas for their new home together - magazines are expensive on a newlywed budget. The other great option for giving away magazines is doctor's offices - they usually have a terrible selection!

I would move the sofa perpendicular to the fireplace wall - where the chair is now - and move the chair to the place where the sofa is, then move the TV to the blank wall beside where it is now.

I love having family visit. I love cooking for the crowd, having the extra leaf in the table and all ten chairs crowded up around it. Our daughter, her husband and 4 children come every summer and our small house (1,100 sq ft, 3 bd/2ba) expands to welcome all. I work, so planning ahead is important. We just have to be flexible and relax and enjoy their company and getting to spend time with the children is great!


Reality Check: Do You Really Like Having Overnight Guests

Maybe plain vanilla is what you need. I would use a cream color for bedding and curtains instead of stark white. Choose one of the wall colors for your accent color for pillows and accessories. I would use one large scale fabric pattern that has several of the colors. I think if you stick to solid colors, it will just emphasize the color block theme that's there. The brick wall area at the end of the room would make a nice faux window with the mirror and curtains suggested earlier. This is a great space...you have plenty of room for a nice sitting area.
