Just me . . . back again with another ‘check out my living room reveal’ type post. I hope you’re not getting sick of them (or me) just yet, but if you are I wouldn’t blame you. I’ve changed the layout of my living room sooooo many times in the past few years! Why? I guess as much as I convinced myself to believe that I was happy with the end results, I actually really wasn’t.
Here are just a few of those changes . . .
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL LIVING ROOM: BEFORE
Its a lot right ? And yet still after every change, a nagging feeling. You know, that really annoying feeling you get when something just doesn’t feel right? The ultimate ‘I just cant put my finger on it’ scenario. Yeah, that’s kind of how I felt about my living room.
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL LIVING ROOM: AFTER
Thankfully after quite a few restless months of racking my brains, I realised that it wasn’t the contents of the room that was throwing my senses off, but in fact the actual layout of everything. And all it took to come to this realisation was one day deciding to swing my sofa around to face the window as opposed to the wall. . . see below

And . . . I literally had one of those ‘ahaaa’ light bulb moments because it just worked!
Of course, changing the position of the sofa did mean I had to make minor
adjustments like moving the TV to another corner, and adding in more shelves to the bookcase wall to account for the empty space where the TV had once been – see here, but it was so worth it!
We now have a multi-functional room that we all REALLY love and for once, actually feels finished.
Yes, its taken me a while to get to this point, but it’s important to remember that decorating a home isn’t a race! Sometimes you really do have to physically live in a space for a while before you know what you really want.
Anyways that’s enough of my waffling, here is the complete video tour of my multi-functional living room! I hope you like it (please don’t forget to leave a thumbs up if you do). I know I usually do lots more of a written run through with room reveals like this, but to be honest, everything I could or need to say , is in the video!
Also, my previous posts about the living room already cover the how’s and why’s of some of the decorating decisions in this space. Check them out below
