Changing things up a bit

So, in my last post, I said my husband and I had pretty much rearranged our whole house. I only have new pics of our living room right now, but I LOVE it!
So here's the old living room:
I said in this post that I never liked the bookcases because they always looked cluttered, well, here's the new and improved no-bookcase living room:
My husband wanted to put the gigantor leather man sofa here when we moved in over a year ago, but I just never thought it would look good. It is so much better than our old set-up. We have more seating, and more space! Who'd a thunk? Well, my husband did, and I should have listened to him.
Before:
And AFTER!
You may also notice that we have a flat screen over our fireplace. We previously had one of those flat screen box televisions in the hole above our fireplace. Well, my genius husband figured out how to mount our flat panel (it was in the bonus room which is now our sons' room) over the hole. We absolutely love it!!! We gave the old "flat screen" to our 8 year old son to play video games on. He thinks he hit the jack-pot. So, there's part 1 of 5 of our crazy room switcheroo. Hopefully it won't take me forever to post the rest! : )

Wow, what an amazing transformation! I love your light blue accent wall, I never noticed it before until this post!

Looks so good! Where'd you put the big chair and the bookcase?
