Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Quickchangeartist CA East Bay
Scottish transplant with passion for color, design and functionality, especially with how it enhances hospitality. We've renovated five homes in our 32 year marriage, one of which was an 1895 Edwardian home on the shores of the Firth of Clyde which I made into a five-star bed and breakfast. My husband is a mathematician turned software consultant turned general contractor so I get involved in the design side of his projects just for fun.

PROBLEMS: Sofa not supportive; Yellow chair difficult to fit (but comfortable for TV viewing); TV needs home but do not want above fireplace; Fireplace bricks clash with colors and design -- too busy; Sliding door by kitchen needs protection from sun; Not sure of eating area; Ceiling light for eating area should be removed or moved (to where?)
Love these colors
Similar size room -- like the mantle and mirror, white contrast with background color. Do not like furniture
We don't have the windows but I just like the look of the ceiling and walls. Don't like TV above fireplace but like the mantle
Love the colors and the feel
Example of a corner media unit. Doubt we'd build something in though.
Another corner media unit
Corner media. Love the built-ins but we don't have the depth on right.
Similar to ours?
Nice way to block the sun
IKEA PANELS -- use on sliding doors?
Paint color on fireplace bricks
Is this fireplace painted?
Love this but our room doesn't have enough depth on right of fire and we don't want TV above fire
