Living Room Makeover
mdiscipio
September 18, 2012
Recently purchased a 1945 home in Marblehead, MA ... We have completed an initial makeover on the living room but I am considering opening it upto the sunroom to create a "Great Room" effect. There are ocean views in the front and gardens in the back and ultimately the goal is maximize the ocean views from all areas of the house. I considered removing the wall behind the sofa and creating a library effect against back wall of sunroom with french doors leading to garden ... would also move baby grand piano to this area. Thoughts?

Thanks, I actuallly had the same furniture and rug in my last home with golden walls (BM Chestertown Buff). It had more of a monochromatic feel, however I think the new color (BM Coventry Gray) creates more of a dramatic contrast and makes the colors pop.

Once the wall is removed ... The sofa would stay as is - to take in the views ... lanterns would be moved and a sofa table would go behind the sofa. Sunroom will have bookcase against back wall with a few club chairs to create another conversation area. French doors will replace the glass sliders ... And a baby grand piano will replace the round dining table ...
