All About

Alice, Temple and Ramona had a beautifully proportioned room to work with, filled with great windows and architectural detailing. By starting with a space plan that pulled the main seating into the middle of the room, they made a warm and inviting place to sit and converse.

It's great to have seating floating in the middle of the space if you have the room—but remember not to push it in too tight. If everything looks stacked in the middle without enough space to breathe, it may look like the movers just arrived!
