Mi Apartamento

Funny, I started out to write about my need for a coffee table and my dilemma over whether to buy a coffee table, an ottoman or some combination of both, and in the process of taking a picture for this post, all of these other problems became apparent. It's an interesting exercise, I think, taking photos of your living space to gain insight into what could be improved.

Some basic problems, I think, are that: I need a radiator cover for that hideous beast that lives under my windows; I am in serious need of some wall decor; I HAVE to do something about that cable wire; the bookcase to the right of the entryway is too short; what might otherwise be a gracious entryway is cluttered with a coat rack on which every article of winter clothing my boyfriend and I own is hung. Oh yeah, and I need a coffee table or ottoman in the seating area. It looks like a lot more work remains to be done.

Just wanted to leave a note about the coffee table vs. ottoman. We went with the ottoman (they seemed so nice and different) but you know who gets the most benefit out of it? Our cats. They love laying on it and we clean it about twice a week. Something to think about. I do wish we had bought a coffee table instead since I really have no place to lay down a drink (other than the end table, sometimes inconvenient) and I think even my kitties would turn up their nose at a firm piece of furniture and cuddle next to us more often instead...

Hey, thanks for this! You know, the cats (I have two) are definitely a consideration - it's hard enough to keep them from scratching the other upholstered furniture so the ottoman would be just one more thing to keep clean and fight with them about (I've thought about a leather ottoman but if they started scratching that I might have to kill them (just kidding, I love them!)) and a coffee table definitely seems more elegant for when you have guests over, etc. It's just that we love to put our feet up. Maybe we'll just have to learn to be more civilized. ;-)
