Typically rods are placed halfway between the top of the window frame and bottom of the crown molding. If the distance between the two is much further than typical (say you have incredibly high ceilings, for example) then it is best to hang rods 5-8 inches about top of window frame. It gives windows a larger more grand look. Hope this helps! Happy decorating!!

What are the dimensions of the room? - I have a similar long living room, but every way I've tried to make this much seating work it just doesn't. Perhaps this room is larger than mine.

Just a thank you - "I wanted it to feel fresh and sunny, but without the clichés," You certainly accomplished this- my inspiration room, thank you! Doing coastal - seenig how yellow / white also fresh / bright option to avoid overkill ("cliche" ) of white on white and navy accent / white . Curtains brings lots of white without concern of keeping clean white furniture / rugs (although love that rug). Reassuring on using 3 sofas for my long room and knowing that larger longer coffee tables ARE out there - see Center 44's has such interesting ones too! No questions, just a big congrats and thanks you!

What brand and color was used on the wall? - Love this war, sunny yellow! It's so hard to find the right color based on chips at the store. Loved how this one looks on the walls. My living room is very similar to this: long and narrow, so frustrating...Thanks for the ideas and for getting back to me with the color name!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Although this is a year-round house, Suvalsky chose to bring summer colors into the living room. "I wanted it to feel fresh and sunny, but without the clichés," he says. "We used blue, green, yellow and white in a way that adds a kind of punctuation."Since the green is used only for the chairs and one lamp, it breaks up the overall golden tone of the room. The scale of the striped chair "is bold enough to almost be architecture, and it sort of matches the boxes on the rug," the designer says. There are a lot of windows, so Sulvalsky softened them with white drapes, which keep them from becoming the focal point of the room."The blue sofa is the only really traditional element," he says. "We used the hard pieces, like the coffee table, to bring in a rusticated wood and some metals that add an elegance to the room without being formal."Pair of sofas, blue sofa, wing chair: custom designed by Andrew Suvalsky; rug: The New England Collection; sofa table (foreground): Center 44; green lamp on sofa table: Antiques on Old Plank Road; coffee table: Circa Antiques; wall lamp: O'Lampia; metal side table: Restoration Hardware; drapes: Sharon Poirier
A long living room often demands more than one sofa. There are three in the room here! The scheme works because the two opposing sofas match, even though they occupy separate seating areas. (Imagine how busy this would have looked if all three sofas were different.) The coffee table is extra large to accommodate the room's scale, as is the wing chair in the corner. The latter's elevated stature helps break up the furniture plane, so all the pieces aren't the same height. Portable chairs, like the green pair seen here, allow guests to pull up a seat whenever they want to join a conversation.

(Imagine how busy this would have looked if all three sofas were different.) The coffee table is extra large to accommodate the room's scale, as is the wing chair in the corner. The latter's elevated stature helps break up the furniture plane, so all the pieces aren't the same height. Portable chairs, like the green pair seen here, allow guests to pull up a seat whenever they want to join a conversation.
