You homemakers all know how one thing leads to another, right? And how making changes in one room leads to changes in other rooms? And sometimes you just get on a roll and change something up just because? (Even if it had nothing at all to do with changes anywhere else?)
Well, that's me right now. In the midst of changing and tweaking and sprucing things up and considering this and that and the other. And one day, I looked through the living room window at the sun porch and thought, I wonder how it would look to switch the table area and the seating area.
This ↓ is how it was arranged before, with the table as the focus, but the seating area felt a little tight.
With the new arrangement, the seating area feels spacious and inviting. But the table is further from the door and from the pass-through window. It's fine for the four of us, but we'll see how it flows when we have a larger group. It won't be as easy to extend the table (with a folding table) for more seating, although we could just set up the folding table separately, maybe even using the wicker chairs at the table. We'll see.
Then, of course, when you rearrange, you see things with new eyes. And my eyes began to see a few nautical touches for the summer porch.
Now my eyes are seeing an outdoor rug to define the seating area. I wonder . . .
