One of my readers, Dana recently hired me to do a consultation on her family room, so I got busy and came up with a plan that I hoped she would like.
She mentioned that they really wanted to get a sectional to fit their space and get rid of the current furniture in here, to better utilize the function of this area. Since this room is fairly small, I think a sectional is a good solution to this dilemma and will create a lot of seating for TV viewing. She said they were getting rid of the small bookshelf to the right of the fireplace, which I thought would be perfect for a small armoire for storage.
Their current furniture layout could definitely be improved upon.
As well as the drapes in here. I suggested simple panels, hung to the ceiling and brought out from the windows for maximum light and window height. I also suggested some bamboo blinds to really take it up a notch.
Bringing in an area rug over the carpet will ground the seating area too.
Dana sent me this inspiration pic that she had found for a sectional idea, so I used that somewhat as a guide.
And I came up with this plan, which Dana loved. I hope she will use these ideas to create the room of her dreams. Adding some color in the rug, pillows and artwork will really pull the room together. I gave her a couple of suggestions on panels that could work in here.
So, Dana, I hope you’ll share your finished room with us when you get it completed.

FYI: These consultations are done entirely online with the client sending me pics by email and then we email back and forth with me getting a good idea of what they are looking for and the direction they wish to move. And we’ve had many successes with them and I think, some very happy clients. One of my online clients is working with me all the way through her entire house and I’ve really enjoyed that!
