Since moving in late October, I've already moved around the furniture multiple times. I can't help it. It's hard to find the right configuration at first. After I ordered this shelf unit, I was struggling with how to rearrange the living room to accommodate it. My brilliant friend Kira (the same one that styled this post) gave me the idea of putting the couch in the middle of the room instead of against either of the walls. It was the best advice I've received in a long time. I am not a "huggy" person but I practically jumped to hug her in excitement. It really made all the difference. I then moved my desk away from the corner and put our little dining table there instead. The space is starting to feel more cohesive. There are definitely a few problematic areas I'm still working on, but for now, the pretty parts.
