My house was built in the 1940s, it's a ranch-style house with attached garage on almost 3 acres of forest land. We don't really have a decorating "style" other than Early Thrift Shop (just kidding........we have some maple furniture that belonged to my parents and is just as durable as it was 40 years ago when they bought it, along with some more modern pieces that we bought when we moved out of the old apartment into our own home 6 years ago).
If I had my "druthers", I'd want a sectional sofa/recliner/loveseat combination---it would be perfect for this huge, L-shaped living room of ours. I'd also buy a corner 'armoire' to house the computer and accessories, a couple of big overstuffed recliners, and a bigger coffee table with matching end tables.
Our front yard is huge, but being on a slope makes it hard to deal with so we have flowers in brick planters out front, and a plot of strawberry plants next to the house. The back is mostly wild, with tall pines and deciduous trees with huge leaves that turn a gorgeous yellow in the fall. We love it out here, as we can literally watch the seasons change from our picture windows.
