I’ve got a plan, friends! I am happy to report that I finally dedicated some time this past week to finish drawing my living room furniture plan – yay!
In case you need a little reminder, I’m in a one-bedroom New York City apartment so it’s not like I have gobs of space to play with or oodles of layout options. The delay in getting this done, as I mentioned last week, is simply that I haven’t had the time to dedicate to this like I hoped. There were definitely a couple layouts bouncing around in my head since I first visited the apartment, and I even had a good idea of the one that would be the winner. However, to confirm the idea I had in my head and to help me determine the size of furniture that would fit, I put my pencil to graph paper and filled in the to-scale floor plan I showed you how to draw in last week’s video.
This initial plan is simple, but it’s critical because it let me know the sizing of several key pieces of furniture for my living room and spurred ideas for some potential shifts to my office setup, which I walk you through in this week’s video. I’m also sharing some important measurements for you keep in mind when creating a furniture plan of your own or simply rearranging the furniture in your home.
Oh, and some other super exciting news…. I found a sofa(!!!)… which I can now purchase because I know the exact size that will fit. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I’m nearing the end of laying on my yoga mat “sofa.” 😁 I’ll be ordering the real sofa this week so its arrival is still several weeks away. However, once it’s here I’ll be sharing all the deets with you, as well as a “how to” and “things to think about” when shopping for a sofa. In the meantime, keep watching for new, fun and helpful videos from me every Tuesday.
