Long Living room no focal point and paint colors
April 10, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hello all! This is my first post. We live in what is considered a split colonial which has a strange flow. The living room is up a few stairs & rarely used as we have a family room also off the kitchen. We have used the living room as a play room when kids are young & now it just has all our old furniture & I am ready to start from scratch. EVERYTHING is going and we are also painting. I am struggling with how to decorate as there is no focal point & we are considering not putting a TV there to encourage socializing. We also are considering a free floating bar:) The other issue is the dining room which is connected to living room. I want to paint it a different color. What do you think? I want a bluish/grey for living room not sure about dining room. Dining room furniture is staying for now. (don't mind the mess). Thanks in advance!
