Need help with our new living room - need functional (usable) space!
January 11, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Need help with this long living room we have. It has beautiful windows but is between our office and our family room/kitchen area. We have our dining room table in it currently (which is fine to keep for one side of the room) but need ideas for the rest of the space. I don't want it to be a room we just walk by or only use on holidays. Any suggestion is welcome - furniture, color, layout, etc.

quick comment - we have our dining room table normally under the chandelier...was just trying to move things around a bit in this pic. Attached are more views/angles for the room to help!

Besides the room being long and narrow the three types of flooring are not helping. The difference between the carpet and patterned floor (is that tile and wood?) is very distracting. Having one consistent flooring would go a long way in helping the space feel more cohesive. If possible get ride of the carpet and go with one hard flooring solution. You can add an area rug under a seating group and another under the dining table to help define spaces within the space.
