Need help in long open space. Beach condo

mmhickeyAugust 1, 2013
This is a rental unit now but plan to live here full time in the next few years. Photos are a bit old we have removed most of the plants, moved the rug to dining area and added a new large area rug to living room. Also added a large piece of artwork to dining area wall.

I want to replace furniture and create a warm space without creating a vertical box feel

Is there a guest room and may my name go at the top of the list!!! With a view like that, I would love to think you would place a couch right across from the window, looking out there. Placing the couch that way would help break up the boxy feel of the room. It cannot be a huge couch, but bigger than a love seat, too. Console table behind the couch OR on the wall where the couch is now. A chair angled by the window for conversation, but not to block the view. Guessing the tv needs to stay in the corner.

What's the saying. If you are lucky to live at the beach, you are lucky enough. Put nothing in front of that view. Place furn so everyone can enjoy it. Maybe a sectional with a chaise on each end, float in room.

There....the chaise on a couch might provide another seating option since I cannot think of places for more chairs. And, yes, who will be looking at art on the walls there with THAT view!

How about a small curved sofa facing the view, then side chairs on each side. A round coffee table in the center to break up the "boxy" feel you are concerned about.

Thank you. I had considered a sectional glad to hear it echoed. The curved sofa is unique concept.

What go you think about dining area. I want to replace stools with backless ones and was considering oval table. Would you do a built in or what type of cabinet. Limited storage so I need something
