Great ideas all! I sort of love all you fellow bloggers out there. So here is what we were thinking:
First, place our big couch under the front window. I think it's the only place this big guy will really fit.
Then we'll frame out the front window window with floor length curtains. Originally I was just thinking f using my thick white brushed cotton curtains, but maybe we could get a bunch of these from IKEA. It'd be a cool pattern and not too girly...
We'll put the TV and the black entertainment center on the wall across from the couch. Last, but not least we'll have the mid-century chair in the middle of the long wall facing the couch for a conversation area with the ear doctor's leaning shelf behind the chair for height. I'm pretty sure we'll need some kind of footrest for this chair. I'd really like to make a cool Moroccan pouf out of some geometric gray and white fabric. Then I could make a pillow out of the same fabric for the couch. However, I'm not so sure the ear doctor is sold on having anything called a "pouf" in our house.
After seeing this room start to come together I think we'll really need a new coffee table. The one we have was a $60 steal, but it's dark black and rectangular with turned legs. I really think we need more curved lines in the room since everything is so rectilinear...so this one from overstock might be ok:
Maybe that would make the room feel too cramped and filled with furniture. So here is the big question: What color do we paint the walls?
If you suggest beige/tan/oatmeal I might just puke everywhere...
