Here's the view looking up from the den I'm trying to get help on arranging. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom.
Isn't that quilt something?! Vince's grandmother or great grandmother made it (I don't remember which). Unfortunately, he never really knew many of his extended family. Looks like it was made for that spot!

I love our new home but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to best utilize the main living area. It is a main thoroughfare as well as a small sitting area. We have a bigger family TV area downstairs in the basement that is being finished by my dear husband now but we do want to keep a small TV in this sitting area. Our plan is to put built-in bookshelves/cabinets on both sides of the fireplace.
So what kind of couch and tables would you put in here? We have a new recliner that we love and we like the color of the reclining loveseat but the loveseat, itself, has been scribbled on, etc. a few million times, so it's not the long-term piece. I have a quilt or two strategically placed on the loveseat for this reason.
I took pictures from different angle so you could get an idea of the space better. I had the loveseat slid into the breakfast nook space for carpet cleaning. That white door you see is the door to the basement and directly across from that in the small hallway is the door to the master bedroom. You can see my new desk in these photos, too! The French doors with windows on both sides -- that's the entry to the screened porch.
Please leave comments... I need help!

Since Lucas can't have baked goods with eggs, I try to make sure we have a normal amount of goodies (occasionally) that he can enjoy. I had a mini donut pan I bought years ago at Hearthsong and now I've also purchased a big one. Thanks go to Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight for reminding me to start using these pans! I just substituted egg replacer powder in the recipe for the eggs and his donuts were yummy!
