I cannot thank you all enough for your comments regarding my decorating dilemma. I am so glad I have so many knowledgeable blogger friends who keep me in check. While I agree that the TV should be moved to the corner, there is just no way to do it with the antique console that I have. I have tried to move it to the corner and angle it, but it's too long. I think in the future I will probably get an armoire or something of that sort and put the tv in that, and angle it in the corner.
Here is a picture of what I ended up doing with the corner.
1) I hated the orange pottery barn chair, so it is now sitting in our guest bedroom. I felt it no longer went with my color scheme and it just looked out of place.
2) I found this two awesome patterned chairs and fell in love
3) I got a tall lamp to put in the corner
4) I am looking for something I can do an etage with on my wall space ... perhaps three small pictures or small framed artworks?
How great is my new bedding? Mom went on a massive search for a quilt set that would match our robin's egg wall color, and I think she found the perfect bedding!
