Here it is. Our main living space on a rainy day. After six months, it's still a blank slate. The picture is taken from the dining area, and the galley kitchen is directly to the left. You can see the credenza peeking out to the right. The space needs help!
The goal is to move our leather sofa upstairs once the sectional comes. It's the Ikea Kramfors sofa, but Jon and I can't seem to part with it.
The scenario: the only space to put the sofa is along the wall to the right as well, which is going to make everything so heavy and focused on that side of the room. I'd like the campaign chairs to flank the sofa once they're refinished ... or maybe both should float in the center between the sofa and credenza to break up the eye a bit? I'm not sure. Since it's a small space, should the goal be to trick the eye and have no interruptions in the line of vision? Everything is pretty much the same height as well, so another dilemma is how to add depth and dimension without shrinking the room.
The chair in the corner with all the blankets is moving elsewhere and so will the bench under the console table to the left. We're definitely adding artwork ... possibly a tall lamp ... a tree ... to rug or not to rug? I've seen a few houses in the neighborhood with the same floor plan and the room can feel cramped fast. The furniture and accessories should probably be kept at a minimum.
So many decisions!
