Sitting Pretty: Living Room Inspiration

By Heidi @missfinn
A living room is a place to sit, to read, relax, cuddle, to play on your iPad, hangout, whatever.  Sometimes, when I get the chance, I love to just sit all day (or for as long as my children will let me) and read.  Having a nice place to do so is even nicer, yes?
