Make My Houzz Cozy - Living room
Laska Leo
April 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello to all! Looking to get advice on what to do with this living room (all the furniture shown in pics belongs to the sellers, so we will be starting fresh). This level is an open kitchen/living concept and the living portion of the room is 13x14 (visually divided by different flooring).
The must haves in the room that will be relocating from our old house are: 1) flat screen 55" TV; 2) 7' sofa and 3) 10'x11' rug. The rest is open for suggestions :)
Ideally we want to keep furniture to a minimum, but at the same time allow for sufficent conversational seating (4-6 people). Also considering getting rid of sofa and replacing with sectional and/or making end wall into accent wall. Colors in the room will be neutral (beige/light brown) to coordinate with the rug.
Would like to hear thoughts on:
- TV placement
- sofa/sectional placement
- any additional furniture suggestions (thinking end tables/coffee table, armchairs, ottoman etc)
- window treatments
- lighting (including ceiling fan replacement)

Found this picture and think a layout like this will fit just fine in your room, just like you see it (imagine those windows on the left are gone).

Re: Dytecture - no, they are not, that 'entertainment center' belongs to the sellers

That's great news. Easier to work without the entertainment center.
Is the floor in kitchen grey or blue?
