I recently read an article detailing one way one woman got into the feeling of the new spring season. She did a thorough, deep cleaning of her living room and completely moved the furniture into a new arrangement.
I used to do that. I say "used to" because that's been an impossibility in the twenty-some years we've lived in our present house.
You see, although our living room measures 16' x 16' square (not a tiny room), it has a staircase, five doors and a wood stove in it. Plus, two main walkways that must be kept open. I know; a furniture arrangers nightmare. There's one and only one way to arrange our living room furniture that works.
I still think of when, in my previous life, each time I felt the need to move the big pieces of furniture to vacuum or clean underneath them, I would put the room back together with a different arrangement. It always seemed as though the room had had a makeover and was somehow new and revitalized.
Do any of you periodically change the looks of the interior of your homes by rearranging furniture?
