This is the third entry in my Room Tours category. Our living room was always one of the most used rooms in the house, but I think Covid 19 has pushed it into the number one spot. We are in here to watch morning Mass, do school subjects, read, play games, watch movies, binge shows on Netflix, sit and talk, nap, go on electronics, and more.
Sarah plays the piano in here, and much of her sheet music is stored near her piano (the rest is stored in the dining room). A circle of fifths print is the wall hanging shown above. I like it because it’s practical and neutral colored. We keep headphones and chargers in the loveseat console. We store DVD’s and Wii U games and accessories in the TV cabinet.
The rest of our DVD’s are stored on a bookshelf in the nearby foyer closet.
The living room is open to the dining room.
On movie nights, we turn the loveseat and the chairs to face the TV, and so everyone can recline with their legs up. It’s super comfy! I even moved a chair right in front of the TV when I watched Parasite, so I could read the subtitles more easily.
We store remote controls and chargers in the end table on the left, and in the right one are kindles and guess what? More chargers!
I think the “Order” print above the sofa is beautiful and I feel a sense of peace when I look at it. My kids don’t agree, and Joseph continually teases me with ideas of things we could hang to replace it.
The room doesn’t usually look like this, as you can imagine, but everything has a place in here, so it doesn’t take long to tidy it up. Everyone just has pick up their own dishes, books, papers, socks, games, blankets, dolls, laptops, iPads, hair ties, and yes, chargers!
