Attention to furniture scale and placement makes a cramped space beautiful and cozy.
The owners of this home have tried to make their living room a comfortable space with a contemporary sectional couch and some Asian antiques, but the oversize couch overwhelms the space, making it feel cluttered and small. To turn the room into a comfort zone, they needed furniture of an appropriate scale.
For their makeover, the couple chose a contemporary blue sofa, a dark blue rug, a media cabinet and a new console to achieve the contemporary Asian style they were after. The room is softened with two tones of yellow paint, and the room finishing touches include graphically placed picture frames and brushed-nickel accents. A large orchid in the center of the room separates the two seating areas and adds instant Asian style.
