{through the looking glass}


Ever since the new romantic post, which featured an oversized mirror leaning against a wall, have been taken with the dramatic statement it makes, and how it opens up a room and adds light.

  • Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual. http://living-room-decoration.blogspot.com

  • Thank you for stopping in to say hello — it's lovely to hear from you!
