What Houzz contributors are saying:
Focus on lighting. In a long, thin living area, Black recommends putting seating areas near the main natural light source. “This will influence how you design the rest of the space and encourages a loose placement of other furniture,” she says. “Position armchairs away from the wall, as this tricks the eye into believing the space is much wider.”
At the other end of the living area, a small workstation serves as a stylish home office. “It’s not an enormous house, so we had to be clever with the available space,” says Kopala. “For this couple the devil was in the detail — they have a lot of trinkets, but we made sure the scheme wouldn’t feel crowded. I think we’ve succeeded in keeping it very balanced.”The owners chose these cheerful pink curtains.
