The new look for the living room

A few posts ago, I showed you what my living room used to look like. This large room runs the whole width of the front of the house, and is built for the sun. It's the heart of the house, and where I spend most of my time. I have now completed repainting the walls, beams and ceilings. This is what you see as you enter the room from the deck.
This is the view over to the stairs. Poodles insisted on being in the photos.
Above is the left-hand side of the room (as you enter from the deck). I didn't paint the side rafters as it's too much work, and I don't mind leaving them stained. The little red settee is a great place to sit on during the day.
Above is the right-hand side, where I sit at night.

Shirley, this is a beautifully decorated room. I could happily live there with you :)
