I love this look. But I have to keep the darned couch in front of the window. I really do like the intimate seating arrangement.
The Better Homes & Gardens website always comes to the rescue when I'm seeking help for decorating dilemmas.
This one is nice to. The colorful rug anchors the furniture pieces. And there is a window seat between bookshelves for more visitors.
I've always loved the look of turning the biggest piece of furniture on an angle. But I have only lived in one house where that seemed to work well. Breaks up the "boxy" look.
Couch as room divider. Creates a cozy look that foot traffic going to and fro does not break up.
This seating faces the fireplace is the main draw of the room. Whereas in many houses, it has to be the TV. I like this look because it is just so cozy.
If you have a small space, and possibly live in a studio setting where it is one big room, this look would work perfectly. The living space is arranged well, and to one side of the sectional is a place to dine.
The patterned curtains keep the solid furniture from looking too plain.
A nook underneath a window, and storage space below. If your area is really small, this would work with a couple of club chairs arranged alongside it. Or even a smallish couch.
Ooh, this one is pretty and cottage-y. Love the ruffles and the two rugs placed alongside one another.
This arrangement is classic. I like the two footstools underneath the coffee table. This is a fun look. I like the addition of the bamboo chair, as it adds a different texture.
Lots of light. Bright and colorful.
Its become increasingly popular to use small stools or other alternates instead of one long coffee table. Makes the space look more visually appealing in many ways.
See any arrangements you'd like to try? I'm still stumped.
