Loungin' Around

Ok, so you may remember what the formal living room looked like before. If not, you can check it out here.

We've decided to call it the lounge, but really have no idea what to do with this room. I don't really want to put any large furniture like couches and such in here, and no TV. I was thinking maybe a wall of bookcases, or a little bar area (since the basement is totally unfinished and won't be finished for a really long time) but I really have no idea.

So for now, here's a few pics.

My mom made the cushion for the window...

And here's a close-up of the fabric...

I bought the large ottoman for some extra seating, but like I said, I have no idea what other small-ish type furniture to put in there. Right now it's just extra chairs from the dining set lol. Any ideas would be great!

Yeah its always hard with two living rooms- I've seem some people even do a formal dining room in the front (which I don't really like)- I think adding bookcases and doing a lounge/library would be cool. Either way it looks awesome- LOVE that color so much!
