Help designing my new living room

last month

I have an empty room. I would like to stay under $6k budget to start to include seating, rug, tables.

As you enter from foyer, fireplace on right wall, pretty window on left. Built in to left of fireplace. 20' vaulted ceiling.

Looking for advice on seating arrangement - kinds of chairs, rug shape and size, table types (coffee table with or without martini tables?) Seats or bench under window that can be pulled up?

  • Comfy but not crowded.
  • I like the club chair seating style. I like a loveseat (2 seat)
  • Want to be able to accommodate up to 8 people if needed....otherwise 4-5 in daily set up.
  • Lamps? I have a ceiling fixture that I'll replace with some kind of chandelier but not sure on that yet.

Like the light/airy/light colors. Contemporary/transitional style.

Room won't have a TV....just a space to go read, receive guests, entertaining chat area away from family room....

Open slate. Trim is white dove and walls are Egret white. Floors are hardwood (mix of dark and special walnut)

Vibes I like...but not necessarily the layouts...

Too cluttered for my taste but some of this is good...
