Q: We added a small part to our house last fall and we used it as the main living space.
The former living room is now a restaurant.
There is a huge stone in this new room.
There is a flat Longjian fireplace
in a corner.
The screen TV is above, so it is definitely the focus of the living room.
The trouble is that this is also the biggest obstacle to the room and I have been unable to include my furniture with two matching white leather love seats and a large recliner chair.
A window and a wall.
The used patio doors on the opposite wall add to this furniture puzzle.
I have an oak wall unit as a music center, bar and storage room, but I may have to move it to the restaurant.
In addition, we have a small oak coffee table and an antique desk I would like to use.
A: Each room needs a focus, but the great quality of your stone fireplace ensures that it will be the focus of your living room and will continue to be the focus.
That is to say, what needs to be done is to design a beautiful and practical furniture arrangement that complements the corner position, quality and overall appearance of the fireplace.
Although not a huge room, it is large enough that the furniture placed against the wall is inevitably too far away, making the conversation difficult.
In this case, even if it means that there is some unused open space, it is almost always better to combine the seats together (
What the interior designer calls a \"breathing room \").
In your living room, it is necessary to enter the patio door unblocked, which means that the area should avoid all obstacles.
As you can see from my paintings, the living room can accommodate all of your existing upholstered furniture, providing comfortable seating for at least five people.
Your upholstered furniture is in a dialogue configuration, making the most of the warmth and atmosphere provided by the fireplace to comfortably accommodate most of the accessory furniture.
With this arrangement, you are unlikely to accommodate the wall unit, so it would be better if you could move it to an adjacent room.
While the fireplace is always the focus of the room, there are ways to stop it from visually overwhelming everything else in the space.
The first thing to do is to introduce some elements in the room to make the space more balanced.
I would suggest you do this by using the color instead of doing it with extra large pieces of furniture.
If your fireplace is done with a traditional gray and beige stone, consider painting the walls with a light beige shade to help reduce the visual weight of the masonry.
In your living room, the window area is a natural counterweight to the fireplace.
You can create a dramatic window treatment in a darker color so that the room can be restored to balance without taking up precious floor space.
It can include side curtains and simple pelmet (valance).
There are several ways to combine all the elements in the room.
Make sure you use some of the same shades in the accessories of the room, but be careful not to overdo it.
Instead, balance some new colors with blue tones on a beige background.
The pattern chosen for the accessory should reflect the style you want to set up for the room;
For example, if your oak pieces are Victorian antiques, you may choose a large, gorgeous pattern.
Geometric patterns may be more in line with your taste and make you look more modern.
It is also possible to consider the use of an area rug that combines blue and white tones and interior decoration colors with harmonious patterns.
