I am a first-time homeowner with nothing but hand-me-down furniture that is functional but not ideal. Before I set out to buy new stuff over time, I would like to have a plan of action. I don't know the smartest order of operations to move forward. So, I was thinking perhaps I'd ask for your recommendations for a furniture layout (seating most importantly), and with that in mind, what kind of window treatments would you then suggest?
A couple of items to note:
1. the living/dining/kitchen is open concept
2. i like having a full-sized sofa ("big blue") where it is as it helps define the living room space. i put the loveseat there before and it didn't work.
3. i don't have a tv. currently i have a computer on a cheap desk in the corner where a tv would likely go. i don't really want a desk in the living room but no where else makes sense. and i need to keep the computer somewhere nearby because i use it all the time to play music while cooking/entertaining.
