Oh, they didn't look wide enough to cover your window in your photo.

I've always had my TV as the focus of my living room, but considering I watch maybe 2 hours/week tops, I'm thinking of maybe downgrading to a 32" and putting it on a full-motion swivel against the brick between windows and this way I can just pull it out and turn it to face the right wall whenever I want to watch TV. The other options is to remove the pantry and cabinet above it (next to the armoire). This frees up an extra 20-25" and I can then mount my TV against that wall. Option 3 is to get a projector and not have to stress about a stupid TV.

I'm a little confused. Which space is for the living room?

Which software did you use for your image? It looks funky smile.gifhappy.gif

The photos of the actual room were processed in Photoshop. The drawings were also done in Photashop--not advisable, though.

They unfold, so are twice as wide as they look. I would not have any shutters if it were up to me.

My GF wont allow any 'smut' (as she calls it), out in the open. Therefore I'm relegated to leaving magazines on the table I actually read, instead of books I want my guests to think and talk about.

A short time ago I also kept some comics in the bathroom, I tried 'heavier' literature in there like Kant and Popper, but they left me feeling constipated. As this is not the effect you want in there I went back to Donald Duck, a laugh seems to help with evacuating your bowels. Interestingly, since my GF moved in she removed the comics, leaving an empty bathroom, and I have not noticed any negative efects. Could it be that the purpose of the room, and the (lack of) literature presented are now more in sync, thus creating a more honest room?

Taschen makes some great books on smut, which also pass for coffee table books,

What's the distance between the kitchen island / post and the wall on the right?

For your first question, yes. I have a couple of days to decide, but if I go that route I'll be having the couch custom made so that it fits perfectly into that corner.

The distance between the island and the wall on the right is around 7 feet.

They also have an awesome book on Klimt that has fold outs of his paintings. For those who won't brave out the above choices.

Which is why I find the room visually jarring. It's as if everything is off just a little. When the elements in the room are too large for the space something's gotta give.

I had an annoying gender studies roommate in college, who insisted on leaving porn around (she was a woman). Literally stacks of fringe, gender-theory porn magazines on the coffeetable, which I couldn't speak out against for fear of being labeled a conservative.
