Main issues were to eliminate the TV, create a faux entryway along with a semi-formal conversation area. Used mostly existing furniture to redesign the living room.
Before, the TV was located in the entryway.
After. Furniture, family paintings and accessories from other rooms were used to create a useful and complementary entryway.
Before. The furniture and artwork placement made the room feel off balance.
After. The daybed lounger and large vintage poster ground the space and are the focal point to the room. A square sisal style area rug replaced the round geometric print rug to echo the square coffee table.
Before. The placement of the furniture wasn't conducive to conversation. The couch was moved into the TV room. The corner round side table was moved to another room. Artwork was rearranged.
After. The furniture is placed around an Indonesian teak weaving table bringing a casual elegance to the room. A side chair from the bedroom was added to this furniture placement.
