Lindsey & other Gadgettes, This was a fun little project. I wish that I had more time to work on it, but here is what I was able to do with a few hours of spare time. I’ve attached 3 Pictures with different layouts, one as a standard layout (Standard Plan View), one for cocktail parties (Cocktail Plan View), and one for movie watching (Movie Plan View). To simplify things I kept all existing furniture except the TV Cabinet and added a new TV Stand and TV. This is the stand I chose for you.
The reason I like this one is that it’s elegant, had a spine that hides all the cables and you mount the TV on, and it swivels that mount so you can rotate the TV. I believe I would recommend a 42″ TV for the space layout, but you can make your own decision. As far as other components go I can work with you if you choose my design and want any advice, but I think you have plenty around you :) I didn’t show anything in the model now, but I can add stuff later if you want to see a more final product. Design-wise, I tried to make the most out of the space while allowing for maximum versatility. I hope that the different pictures illustrate this versatility with simply rotating or slightly moving some furniture. With the TV located where I have placed it you are able to keep the same amount of space for the TV area, while gaining extra space by the fireplace for more intimate tasks like reading and the kids have some open play area. This should also allow you to watch TV while in the Dining area if you choose (the swivel TV stand helps here), as well as put a lot more chairs in the Dining area for watching movies should you wish to. I believe going around the corner of the couch to walk through the space is more helpful for the space layout than it is hurtful as long as the door swings open freely. I would have liked to do some things with lighting and paint colors, but time restraints limited me to just working on the layout mostly. Of course I’m more than happy to work with you to tweak things to get it there.

I stumbled upon Geeky Clean and thought you guys would enjoy it as much as I did. (I just ordered 3 soaps from there.)
Keep on being freakin’ awesome.
In a never-ending one-upsmanship battle, Yanko Designs outlines the deets on the iTit (no, not the it-it), annnnd it’s exactly what it sounds like.
No word yet on price or if it will come in various sizes/color tones based on the user’s preferences, but I believe it should come with a warning: “”Don’t scroll too hard, it’s sensitive.”"
(Too dirty? lol maybe... :P)
Anyway, have a great day!
