Small 700 sq ft apartment dilemma 2

Sorry, I meant to add a photo of the wall! Here it is.

I think I'd need to see other angles of the room. Do you have a wide buffet? If so, I would use it for the left side (kind of under the red painting). Then center the red painting over it (or another piece of art) and maybe flank the painting with some wall sconces.

Hi, thanks for your comment. This angle is looking out from the kitchen. I was thinking of putting the tv in this spot which is right across from the sectional. A nice buffet is a good idea though. Do you think I could put one on the wall by the dining table? You are right about my needing more art. I am an artist so I should probably get busy with something more for this area.

More Space Place Dallas/Fort Worth
We design all kinds of space-saving furniture, including Murphy beds with sliding shelves. I don't know if you're able to install something like that in a rental like this, but it was be neat if you could! I wanted to post a pic of a really simple custom entertainment center--it's actually in the owner's personal home. It's super simple with shelving inside the cabinets, and room for displays. I'm thinking, since you're an artist, a design like this might be perfect for displaying a lovely sculpture, paintings, etc.

Hope this helps! Small spaces are a challenge, but it's kind of fun to find creative solutions.

The tv will help and be functional because you'd be able to see it from the kitchen as well. If that's what you're thinking, you could use an entertainment center (or piece like that) to serve as your tv stand. I would choose something substantial to anchor the table and because it's such a large wall. Then you could use your art near the table. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I think a buffet with the dining table might be too much. I know I would choose something for the tv with LOTS of storage...a necessity for small apartment living!

Thank you all for your great ideas! I especially love that entertainment center. That's the direction I plan on going.
