Makes me happy!

Beautiful, well lit living room with curved lounge

This living room makes me happy whenever I see it in my files. I think it was posted on AT:LA by a writer… I love it.

Lusting after that lamp.

Beautiful, well lit living room with curved lounge

I’m sure this place was taken by a photographer using good lighting and know how. But it’s so bright. Great way to use the space above the “pic rail” as a shelving for books and items of interest.

I also love the large, tall indoor plant. Adds a burst of green to a largely all white space.

The large curved lounge in a room with straight corners. I wonder how “sinkable” that lounge is!

    coco+kelley thanks for visiting!! come back soon.. yes it’s a glorious space… even without large windows its bright and open! (even with the awkwardly shaped furniture)it’s a lesson on how curved furniture can still look awesome in a straight-walls shaped room!
