We are in the market for new furniture.

We are getting to the stage where we are looking for new furniture for our living room. We want something casual, leaning to the modern, vintage Scandinavian look. We are thinking about the same kind of arrangement that it is right now, but we don't know if that is the best or just the easiest. I would like two swivel chairs. We do have an option of mounting a tv on the wall behind the couch but it is not the main tv viewing place so that is not a priority at all. I don't really like that the couch would be in front of the window that goes down a foot above the floor but that is the longest wall. The window on the right faces the front yard and the left one faces the back yard. The room is open to the kitchen and dining room. So as you can tell, I am not sure what to do. Any feed back is appreciated.

I think this is a great opportunity for a nice low sectional with TV on the wall to the right from Fireplace, that way you could have the swivel chairs to the right or left whichever "arm" side you decide for the sectional...TV can be built in in open shelving

Color blocking the rooms with paint might be an option. Then you could keep all the furnishings neutral - cream, linen, oatmeal. Accessorize with more of the color and then change it out when your mood or trends change. I would start color blocking with neutrals, like beige, greige, grey, and later you can re-paint in another swatch like shades of pastels or primary colors. Paint is an easy and inexpensive decor changer, and your neutral foundation pieces will go easily from trend to trend.
