We did manage a little room rearranging. Remember how I told you she and her hubster have a long and narrow family room that's proving difficult to configure? I cringe at releasing in-progress photos, but thought you might like an update...
She originally had a large sofa where the accent chairs now sit. It visually decapitated the room. Now, it seems to breath. Ahhh...better.
Some might not believe curtains are necessary when there's already perfectly-good shutters in place. I beg to differ. It's not so much that curtains are necessary, but without them, I think this room would always look a bit unfinished. Curtains take it to the next level. And, after all, it really IS all about layering to get a truly polished and complete look.
Curtains in a dining room can really make the room SING. See what I mean?
I rest my case.
