Formal living room/ entry room design ideas
February 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
we have the entry room as formal living room which is mainly used for kids play (big toys) , since this is the only room with high ceilings and keeping them anywhere else makes it feel congested. There is no furniture except for sofa set that we had for formal living room. I want to give this room a "warm welcome" room and also use it for double purpose.

it has high ceilings and one side of the room is large windows with shutter door that open inside.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like a fun space. How formal is the sofa that you have in there currently? I would add a few more pieces of furniture to get the warm welcome feel.
How big are the "big toys"? Can they be tucked away when not in use or used as part of the decor? (A tent or art easel could be fun decor as well as toys for kids) I like how this room is well designed and a fun space for kids.
