Making Small Changes Real Simple

In the latest issue of Real Simple, I spotted an article that was absolutely perfect for this month's theme of Small Changes. "Ready, Set, Redecorate" shows how several families, with the help of redecorators, were able to reimagine their homes by simply rearranging their furnishings. That's right — not a vase, lamp, or frame was added from outside sources. All of the fabulous changes were made by simply rethinking and rearranging. How's that for a cheap thrill?

To see my favorite rearrangement,


My favorite rearrangement was implemented by Dawn Falcone for the Gitonga/Delarama family, whose 12-foot-wide living room needed some rethinking. She moved the sofa out of the corner and gave it a great view — that of the family's fireplace. Another important change she made was to get rid of the massive entertainment cabinet and place the television out of the main sitting space (it's now near the back windows, where family members can watch a show while others visit in the main space). I think it's a great change. How about you?

For all of the other great rearrangements, check out the latest issue of Real Simple.
