Living Room Tour - Updated

Although I have posted pictures of our front living room a few times in the past couple of years, I haven't given a detailed tour since just after we moved in, in March 2010.  Well, today's the day!

Late in 2011 we finally bought a couple of couches for this room, which meant moving the existing furniture around.  This is now a calm, pleasant room to read quietly or listen to music, especially on hot, Adelaide summer days.

The couch under the window is a sofa-bed -- very useful as we don't have a guest room.

 The coffee table was given to me recently by a friend who was decluttering before moving interstate.  It belonged to her grandmother.  It's a little small for the space but suits our other old furniture and serves its purpose well.

We put our stereo on an old traymobile that belonged to my husband's grandparents.  A family member sent us the traymobile last year and we didn't have a spot or use for it until we thought of the stereo.

 Looking from the other direction, you can see the fireplace.  We still haven't bought a mirror or picture to hang over the fireplace -- all in good time!

 The piano is still tucked behind the door that leads to the hallway.
That's the end of today's tour.  Tomorrow I'll share some recent photos of our dining room.

You have a lovely living room. I have an old tea trolley but dont really know what to use it for. We dont have a stereo, but that is certainly a good idea...Love the coffee table :)
