Wow, 2 posts today (before 9am)!
Space planning is definitely NOT my forté. This is the space off of our livingroom. The previous owners used it as their dining room but we've decided to use it as an extension of the LR - it's what I call the "sitting room" for lack of a better room name. I painted it grey (surprise surprise) but I still have to paint the window sill white, I think it'll brighten the whole space up. I also haven't decided whether or not those shelves need to be victimized by the can :)
I can spend hours and hours moving furniture around and still not get the AHA moment. I know that symmetry is supposed to be a safe route, but I'm not sure I like the two lamps here.
Oh and you can see that small area rug that I bought a long time ago from Urban Outfitters, I'm so happy I kept it because now it's a perfect match for the teal chair! I'm also looking for poufs and floor cushions so if you have any affordable sources please let me know!! I want the house to have a really comfortable feel to it - one where you feel like kicking off your shoes and finding a comfortable spot on the floor.
Overall I'm starting to feel like it's coming together and starting to feel more like a home!!!
Great space planning ideas:
