Hide CaptionShow CaptionNow the rooms have a distinct separation and the living room is bright and inviting.
Now we're talking clean and comfortable. A well-defined, welcoming seating area has been created by moving the sofa and adding a large area rug. The warm wall color softens the room, and the elegant armoire conceals the television. The buffet from the dining area was moved near the door and now serves as an entry console. The closet door in the living room spots a fresh coat of white paint to make it pop against the warm wall color. In the dining area, a new round table is in place of the old square one. A new shade fixture hanging over the center of the table adds a contemporary touch.
