Help!! Small nook in family room needs decor
jlcronin
September 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a small nook in the family room that needs attention and I'm not sure how to address the space. A chair would be too big but it definitely needs something...I'm just not sure what that something should be. First picture is a close up (with other furniture) and second pic is the room "naked." Thanks for any help!!!

I think a large plant would look really nice there. or maybe a group of plants.

At this point I wouldn't put anything there. Move the couch and side table and you may be able to get away with a nice plant, however, I would keep the space open and free.

doesn't need anything - keep it open.

I also vote to leave it open and uncluttered.

Cost Plus Imports has really cool tall wooden carved giraffes. Here is a photo of two small ones, but one tall one would look great. Then, nothing on the shelf so the giraffe peeks through the opening. :)

Thanks, everyone, for your help! I really appreciate it! I never even considered leaving it open before, but I love that idea. Very simple.

Doesn't need anything, but you could do a skinny plant stand and an ivy plant or orchid.

Nothing at all. I do have to ask why the table, lamp and chair are positioned there. Isn’t it in front of the island?

Or do you mean two corners?

Iplay10s- the table isn't directly in front of the opening, just looks that way. There's a good 4-5 feet between the two. I have an extremely long sofa.

I would leave it open as well. The eye needs places to rest instead of something in every small space. You may want to try different placement for furniture - It looks like sofa is blocking the bar area??
