Twinkle 24. Move the art work to the centre of your sofa, and Aline all chairs across from one another to create a square conversation area. Secondly remove the art work over the fireplace and replace with a clock and either change the ceramic on the fireplace or paint them black to make it recede. Your sofa now is your focal point.

Thank you .. we have 3 turret rooms, each with windows around the turret. One we have turned into a breakfast/library room, it’s the bedrooms I’m having difficulty with as I’m not fond of placing beds against beautiful old windows.
