What Houzz contributors are saying:
Open PlansIn an open plan with separate seating areas or functions, give each area one focal point. In this case, that would be the TV wall and the chandelier hanging above the dining tableYou can then also include a dominant focal point between them that ties the whole space together, or simply leave it out for a more subdued look. To me, if you cover up the painting, the space feels a little lacking in energy, but your preference may vary.Either way, the painting acts as a focal point to the space as whole, rather than to one of the functional areas. Placing a focal point on the dividing line between zones helps the room feel less rigidly segmented and more harmonious.
