I've been trying to simply things at Linderhof
Less things to clean!
So I can have more time to play!
The living room - before:
There's a table next to the right wing chair
With a lamp and "stuff" on top.
I moved that out
and now the south part of the living room looks like this:
The two wing chairs flanking the fireplace
Looking more like a pair
Than two singles
And I like that look!
The north part of the living room
Has the "comfy" chair
(the beige one that Doogie is on)
And another antique side chair that we've had "forever"
We can seat eight in the living room
(if three sit on the sofa)
without bringing in any extra chairs
And I like that
But when you have company
Whether it's company for dinner
or like last night, when The Cookbook Book Club came
there are drinks and nibbles
And we don't like to have our guests do a balancing act!
In one corner by the fireplace is this English curate (or muffin stand as they're sometimes called)
folded, it takes very little room!
And in the other corner, a little tilt top table
The top a perfect size for a cup and saucer, a glass of wine and perhaps an appetizer plate.
They stay in their corners, until we have company . . .
Then the bigger one is beside the comfy chair
So a guest can set down their wine, their cocktail, their coffee
And the little one goes beside the wing chair
With it's three theirs, there's room for a cocktail, a wine glass and an appetizer plate!
They're easy to dust even back in the corner
They don't have "stuff" on top (to dust)
and I think the living room looks larger without the extra tables.
It solves a sometime problem
Without being an all time pain.
