I have officially moved! I am adjusting to the new space and dreaming up what I want it to look and feel like.
First things first, hello fireplace. I have dreamt of having a fireplace for years. We had one as a kid growing up, I remember cold nights in Ohio with my family gathered around the fireplace playing board games. I haven’t had one since I moved out of that house when I was 18 so here I am 20 years later and I finally have them again.
The ceilings are HIGH so small art just doesn’t work. I need one big piece of art. This one is 60×40 and fits the space nicely but I really want to stack some art over the fireplace. Maybe 4 pieces in total?
I moved my old couch in this space along with two chairs and my coffee table and there is a bookshelf for ALL of my books. I have nicknamed this room The Library. There is even a little reading nook and the morning light that floods this space is dreamy. The space is almost complete minus a few other pieces that need to be ordered.

Late night chats on the phone and in person.
Game Nights around the fireplace
My family finally visiting Chicago again.
