Need help for my living room/family room

In between my formal living room and my family room is a couple of columns. I love the openness and light that this provides, but I would like a little bit more separation between the rooms. Would you do a half wall? Or maybe a full wall with built in bookshelf to the far right and then a half wall in the center?

I would have open shelving in the middle and right side of the openings.

You could use a nice room divider for the center, and drapes in the far right, but not to completely close the drapes so as to allow a a little view. Maybe add window treatment to the windows as well. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the ideas. I hadn't thought of either one. I have been trying to figure out what to do with this since we bought the house.

I like the shelf idea. they could be painted white to match your trim or glass if you want them to really look open. Don't fill them too much. Use a combination of books that are stacked and things that are interesting to look at.

Do you have a fireplace? You can put a see through in the middle.
