I would have the couch face the view. I would also like the couch to be dark leather and more rounded than square! I chose this picture for the view and couch, but I would like a more modern/futuristic look.
I've tried so many different shoe racks and none of them seem to fit my needs. If you notice upbove the door, there is a sign that says, "Fairy Tales Do Come True". This would be my dream closet :) It appears each shelf holds 4 pair of shoes!
