Third time’s a charm- updated living room

Man oh man, does the living room in my house have a serious case of ADD or what? In case you haven’t been following along with the short attention span of this room, let me recap it for you. The first time I showed this room to you was here, and it looked like this:

Then I went all David Bowie on you and did some ch-ch-changes.

And remember this gorgeous sexy sofa that I got recovered?

The original plan was for this midcentury sofa to live in the basement but come on, nobody puts Baby in the corner (or the basement). Plus with the big tv in the basement it just made sense to move the comfy sectional to the lower level so the whole fam could cuddle up and watch movies. Then began the third iteration of the living room. Here it is currently:

I think the saying third times a charm is right about how I feel currently with this room. When we first moved in I just couldn’t figure out a good furniture arrangement for the room, other than putting a big old sectional in it. But this current arrangement is really working for me. It feels much more suited for conversations, and in hopes of making this a real adult room I even moved all toys that used to hide in the drawers below the fireplace down into the basement. This room is my perfect mix of rustic, midcentury, and textural elements and every time I take a look at it from the kitchen it makes me happy! Hopefully we’ve cured this room of its ADD for good.
