Before: Poor LayoutBefore, this living room had a poor layout and too many patterns making it inconvenient for entertaining. The layout was not accenting the fireplace which should serve as the main focal point in this space.
After: Cohesive Formal LivingNow the living room is formal and functional. The sofa is placed on an angle for a view of both the fireplace and television. A pair of green chairs flank the fireplace for a cozy seating area while two model ships make a strong statement on the mantel.
A tall plant is placed in one corner to balance the visual weight of the grandfather clock in the opposite corner. A floor lamp helps to balance out the arrangement while more colorful window treatments (found in a closet) bring the color above eye level.
