The challenge for May is Living Room. So today is another exciting day. I tried to take a few pictures of my living area which is spread out to make it suitable for entertaining and for daily use.
This living room is a desolate spot and my daughter keeps wondering why we are not using the room as much as all other spaces. Our guests do not like to sit there for long. After a short time they feel the urge to go into the kitchen where the action is. My living room is nothing like the glamorous pictures in the magazines or furniture shop display that I admire. It is a place that I have put together with pieces of furniture I bought in my first home. Without considering the utility and decorating aspects, I did my hasty purchase and regret it sometimes because they are huge pieces. When I moved to other homes I realised its limitations.
Our family hangs out there when making phone calls to relatives back home as the TV cannot interfere. We put the phone on speaker and it is like a short trip to family far away. That is the best use of this room.
Chess board on the bottom of the coffee table. Who plays chess…from the dust it accumulates, I must confess…nobody any more! But it brings memories of Kenya where we spent a major part of our life. I like the reflection of the curtain on the glass table top.
We congregate all the time in our family room, snacking on the couch, watching TV, reading, playing, going online and even watching the backyard. No wonder it is the catch all, feel free, relaxing space where ours visitors like to settle down too. In winter, this is the cozy nook we all fight for.Early May sun throwing its warmth and light into this spot where we spend time with family and friends.
