Multiple Seating Areas

I like the idea of multiple seating areas in a living room: a place to watch tv, a place to read or do a puzzle or just lounge, smaller groupings.  That way the whole family could be in one room together even if we're all doing different things.

I am trying to figure out having maybe two or three areas in my own living room......here are some that caught my eye:

 This Vanni Archive room is very spacious.....so I think the arrangement could be replicated in a smaller room, perhaps with a smaller table and a tighter furniture grouping


Loving the cowhide chairs in this Tara Seawright living room


I like the table and the tufted chair in the alcove by the window...maybe there's a second chair on the other side of the table?  Liking the gold table and soft colours of the rug as well.  Also, this picture shows that the room doesn't have to be huuuge to have more than one seating area...I like that
Room by Linda Merrill


Talk about multiple seating! Wow there's a LOT to like about this room.  The striped floors are a really nice touch
from coco and kelley


 This Victoria Hagan design is fresh and white 


 In this living room, someone could be reading in the nook, while somebody else is on the computer and others are watching tv....Oh and I just noticed the desk behind the sofa.. AND again, this room isn't THAT large...Here's a closer look.....

Velvet and Linen


Here's my living room...excuse the picture quality but I'm thinking perhaps an L-shaped window seat under the window to the left.....or maybe I should move the chair directly in front of the mirror and replace the mirror with a round table and a chair on either side.... 



I guess I can dream....What do you think?

Favourite Eats….



 



 Pictures via here

 A few of my favourite eats (not necessarily in that order):
Bacon
Bread
Fried chicken
Brownies
Fried chicken Oops mentioned that already
Pork ribs (any kind of pork, really)

I actually don’t eat some of these foods all that often for obvious reasons but they always make my mouth water…

Yes, I realise that there are no fruits or veges on this list but that's for another post :)

Have a great day!

I'm fancying.....

1. The pink and white palette
2. The ornate design of the mirror and the gold base on the lamps...I think they add a big punch to this vignette
3, The fact that if not for the teddy bear this could be a woman's dressing area



1. The high-back wing chairs
2. The gold legs and brass tacks on said high-back wing chairs
3. The window treatments.



Happy Monday!!
