Complete Living Room Redo!! Help!!..please!

July 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
So, we just built a new house, and I'm having so much trouble with the living room area. Everything in the photos can be taken out or replaced.
We were planning on buying new furniture and taking the current sofa to the basement. I'd like to work with the carpet as it's the largest one we've come across in our area. I'm planning on getting some sort of 'floating' mantel for the fireplace as well...unless someone comes up with a better idea!! We can't have light coloured furniture because we have many small children who will wreck it in no time. I was thinking charcoal fabric sofa or brown leather (easy to wipe off). One of my biggest issues is designing around the 20' ceilings, they intimidate me!! Please help! TIA!
ps. Both the sofa wall, and the fireplace wall are both 16' long.

Your dog is cute!!!! What breed is it? Anyways, get a sofa that matches your 2 arm chairs (black leather) and as for your floating mantel, instead of hanging the mirror, I would lean a pic or art work(or a mirror) against the wall and on the mantel.

And make the window treatments go all the way up to the white trim, and make them longer (touch wall to wall) so that the curtains don't take up half the window. Hang a pic or art work (you don't need any more mirrors because you don't want your space to feel too big) above the couch. Put 2 tables on either side of the couch and put some flowers on them and/or lamps

And get rid of the cabinet by the window. Hang a chandelier

I would say much, much more but there is too much to be said in these comments ;) p.s. I'm not a pro interior designer so keep in mind that they are suggestions that look good in my mind. Good luck!!!
