Hide CaptionShow CaptionHow do you create intimate seating areas for entertaining when you have one long, narrow room? See what creative solutions the Design on a Dime team comes up with this time!
Navid and November Mcllhargey recently moved into a two-story Craftsman home and are working to make it their dream home. They're renovating all the rooms at once, so none of them are finished.

The living room is a long, open space, and the couple can't figure out what to do with it. They want to create intimate seating areas for entertaining.
