Old view from the foyer:

New view from the foyer:

The piano in the top picture was moved to our bedroom for a variety of reasons, mostly due to two-year-olds standing on the pedals. Without the piano, our longest wall in the room was empty, giving the room an unbalanced feel. After a few configurations, this is how all the furniture landed. I like it, but am withholding firm judgment until we have our typical crowd of 16 people in the house, to see how it works with guests.

Looks great to me! Thanks for the herbs, by the way. I plan to get them in the ground today or tomorrow :)

Like how the red chairs are separated!

Thanks everyone!

Andrea- I hope the herbs survive! I didn't do a great job potting them, so hopefully they perk up when they're actually planted.

Farmer Files - The red chairs are still mostly together, on the left. One is against the wall, and the other is angled away from the wall, with a table between them. The red on the right of the picture is the red ottoman. I tried a red chair there, and it didn't really work.

I am excited that I do have a good amount of seating for good-sized get-togethers- Anyone want to have a party?

Looks good! More open. I love moving furniture around.

The way it is arranged with the chairs separated, it just says "come on in and join us". I love it!
