My husband gave his approval and my sister, the voice of reason told me to go for it but to realize I would have to repaint and get new rugs and curtains. A friend told me the couches had been reupholstered since the fringe on the pillows is not something that would have been original to the couches, I'm going to cover the pillows in some flashy purple soon enough. There are so many colors in the upholstery; I have a lot to work with. One day when I run out of projects to do I will probably reupholster them again in some bizarre fabric.
|Perhaps beige for the walls, although that sounds so dull!|

|Not the best picture but this shows the living room as you walk into it from downstairs. Hopefully by the fall or winter we will have a wood-burning stove to the lower right of the picture. To the left you can see one of the bedrooms off the living room. The white partition is my way of hiding the television form being a focal point of the house sine the living room is very visible from the kitchen/entry area. To the front left before the sofa chair hiding in the corner are my sewing table and a bookcase. It is a nice little nook and way of dealing with the long living room space.|
