Hang large horizontal art over sofa. In dining area put large china cabinet ( not necessarily with china in it), bookcase 60" x 72" tall, or 60" wide credenza/server with large art over it. This will define both areas separately.

Hi Patti! I agree with adding either a bookcase or credenza to define the space. If that's not an option attached are a couple of suggestions on hanging wall art. Also if you have an IPad, try an app called Homestyler. It's free and you can use a photo you've taken and arrange wall art, furniture and accessories so you'll see what it would look like in advance. Of course if the room is empty it's easier to visualize. Hope this helps.

Any surface can get too hot at times. I think you'd be really happy with the look and feel of pavers.

Thanks for your response. That's exactly the same width space I have for my new build (start construction in Dec). How much space do you recommend for greenery on the side? About 3ft deep beds?

That sounds about right Steve. It really depends on what you're planning to plant. Remember to also have your sprinklers address the the plantings correctly and it's a great opportunity to install the outdoor lighting while everything is dug out. Love to see the finished resulys!

We had the custom cushions made. Because of the unusual shape we measured and made a template using butcher paper. We laid it along the bench and taped the edges, then cut each section to fit the container we purchased to store the cushions. Next went to UFO in Vista and selected the Sunbrella Fabric and the cushion size and then selected a contrasting material for the square back cushions. They were made within 2 weeks. We love them!

The oil paintings were purchased at Collectors Art Gallery in San Diego. They have since closed. Check out art.com. They have beautiful art at a great price.

I found the towel rack in Austin, Texas in a little shop downtown. Sorry I don't recall the name.
