Dining/Living room wall arrangments
January 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are redoing 1949 house a bit at a time. Our dining/living room is one long room with the door at the center and a fireplace exactly opposite the door. The wood floors were just refinished and our fireplace is almost done as you can see in the picture (just need to put the doors on and get the mantel). My dilemma is what to put on the walls and/or corners down in the dining space. It looks bare with nothing but I don't want to put too much and have it look cluttered. I have a metal hanging that I am contemplating hanging on that wall sitting on the floor right now. Is that the right choice? Leave the corners empty? The wall behind the dining table has large windows and the long wall by the door is all windows. If I missed the boat on the arrangement on the other end, let me know also. This is a tough space.
