The living room definitely had it's challenges: it's long (ish) and narrow, quite dark, and a thoroughfare to the kitchen. I didn't get a full room shot apparently, but you get an idea of how it was laid out from the floor plan.
I added handles from Anthropolgie, which were expensive and terrible quality, but they sure are pretty (should've taken a closer shot of those...oops).
My other favorite thing is the gallery wall above the sofa. I had been meaning to update some of the family photos, and honestly it feels a bit squished together - I'd like to have spaced the frames out just a smidge more, but I still liked it.
Our double-wide dresser wouldn't fit up the stairs either, so we stuck it in the living room as a TV stand, but that actually worked out really well, and I loved it in there.
All this moving is frustrating, I'm sure, for anyone reading about my never-finished plans, but I am seriously crossing my fingers that the next house will be a keeper for at least until we are able to buy our own home in a few years.
