The furniture’s tones suit the space, but lining all the pieces up along the wall this way shortchanges the room’s potential.
What would you do to make this room show off its lines and beauty? How about breaking up the solid row of furniture for a start? The attempt to make them look built-in isn’t working. Also, the television and other accessories lining the top distracts from the view through the window.
You could put the television and its cabinet in the far corner, angled between the two windows. That would be a good start toward breaking up the crowd. The tall shelving unit could move across the room. This will connect the space without emphasizing too much matching.
A large area rug in dark tones would add an anchoring element to this lighter room as well as a strong piece of interest. Light upholstered furniture could provide seating. The art in the room is too high – it should be set at eye-level for everyone to enjoy.
With just a little effort and a few more pieces, this room can reach its graceful potential. What else could you do to rescue this room and turn it into something to be proud of when family and friends visit?
