A Fresher Living Room

Inspired by the new energy of the sitting room, I shuffled the living room furniture this morning. It's amazing that the same old stuff looks so different when it's been rearranged. Here you can see the east half of the room. The dining table is on the elevated stage (that's a *real* stage from when this was a school), and steps come down on both sides of the room.

The red dollhouse in the corner was mine when I was a little girl. It was built by the same carpenter who overhauled our house, and is painted to match. The bedroom even had the same striped wallpaper I had in my own room--I thought that was magic. Now my daughters play with it!

The music side of the room--the Composer at the piano, under an (unfinished) portrait of Clara with her cello. We miss her this week as she is gone to camp *again*! I did not do the portrait!!

But I did do this watercolor collage of pink tulips. I love this section of wall, just the simplicity of the cream, pink, and green. Makes the fern look good.

Anna ~ What a unique piano! From the photo, it appears to be harp-shaped. Is that simply decorative or does it enhance the sound?

I would be curious to know how much your watercolors would be if you listed them in your shop!! I love watercolors, and especially like your style! I remember a painting of red geraniums that was wonderful!

Thanks for sharing! I always love to see pictures of your home. Like Jodi, I noticed the unusual shape of your piano. I have never seen one like it!

Have a great day!
Mrs. H
