Before and After Living Room

In an effort to find a more comfortable arrangement with better flow in my living room - I decided to move some furniture around. The first two pictures are the "before" shots.   Too cluttered!  The sofa blocks the flow of the entry way into the living room, etc.
 The following pictures show how it looks rearranged and with a few less pieces of furniture. See what you think ...  I really like the new look. And if you are wondering - the streamers are for my son's birthday! Sometimes streamers are up on the ceiling for months!
