Split Level Ideas
bookshelf behind couch to split a room!
Kind of ignore the stairs and work the room as if those weren't there
En large area as if the room was small. spread everything out, and make the accessories busy.
bunch everything towards the wall and leave the walkway by the window.
Add shelves to the whole wall.
don't worry about traffic flow, build it comfy.
Could we make the lving room a split between a 'formal' dining room and a living room?
Add a shelf, paint it the color of the wall, and put it behind a sectional.. all the way in one corner
Classy ping pong table :)
Go long wise against the grain or "flow of the room"
THese shelf would work if we want a modern feel.
A lot of designs have this little circular table.
