Long living room - not sure what do with it?
March 27, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hello! We've just bought a house! Please excuse the mess in the photos! I'm just not sure what to do with the space where the striped chair and book shelf are. Right now it's just awkward, empty and needs to be put to better use. I'd rather not put a table there because we have a huge one right on the other side of the fireplace. I thought about a buffet but I'm not sure what I'd do with it other than put it along that back wall which would mean all the furniture in the entire space would just be lined up along the walls which I know is a no no. Behind the blinds is a large three panel window and the middle panel slides open so nothing can be directly in front of it. I also thought about just a separate little sitting area devoted to the fireplace but I would really prefer to keep the entire space more connected than that - otherwise I worry we'll just never utilize the space. I'd LOVE some fresh perspective on this and am open to changing anything about the room! Just to clarify the view of the tv is when sitting on the sectional. Thank you!
