Usually in large houses, there is a formal living/front room, mostly near the entrance which is widely used to receive and entertain guests, for reading, etc., and a family room, usually adjacent to the kitchen where the members of the house hangout everyday. Today I bring you the formal living room or the front room, and its workaholic neighbor, the home office of my SIL's house.
First off is the living room. They moved the couch they had in their previous house into this room. But that't not enough, is it?, there was a whole lot we had to do in this space, to make it look more welcoming.
Moving onto the living room's neighbor, Home Office. This room was completely empty after moving the file cabinet to the living room. So the first step was to buy some office furniture.
Tamil poets and writers. I so wanted to take down that old window draping left by the previous owners, but couldn't do it at that time. We hung a wall art which is a picture of a satellite launch in NASA, gift from the realtor. Also added some decorative accents to the bookcase. Gave a personal touch and a pop of color by placing a colorful painting done by Tee's niece (its near the follow your dream sign).

Home office needs more wall art(the wall opposite to the book case is completely bare), a new file cabinet(the old one didn't fit well with new furniture), an area rug, and some new blinds or at least remove the old drapes. But overall, the living room is complete, and home office is ready for some "work from home" days. xo, Hems
