Probably the only thing I might change if I had total control is I tend more towards warm grays than cool. Our walls, which are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, are my favorite – light gray with some warm tones – and our kitchen cabinets are a darker warm gray. The gray blue of the sectional really is beautiful (and actually complements our marble in the kitchen really well). I think it will be a very forgiving color: light enough to help the room feel bright (remember one of my goals?), but dark enough to hide the inevitable grime of young kids.
So we completely redid the fireplace and created a bookcase nook for the tv (you can read all about that project here), which realigned the room much more logically. But even with the addition of a wingback chair, we could still only seat 5 people really comfortably. Since we are now a family of 6, that proves to be rather disappointing.
Let me start by stating the obvious to my regular readers: I’ve never really shown this room on the blog before. When we first moved in, we had the tv on a bench in front of the window, two oversized brown leather pieces floating opposite the tv, a bookcase tucked into the corner, and an old tufted ottoman in the center. They all looked beautiful in our old living room (where the tv hung on the wall above the fireplace), but in this room they were awkward and totally inefficient. The room felt cramped, and we could still only seat 4-5 people.
2. Measure the room you are going to place L shaped couch. Make sure you choose the one which is fit with the room in your house. If it is hard for you to find the right size of this couch; you are able to buy custom grey L shaped couch.
4. If you have another couch besides L shaped couch; place table lamp between L‐shaped couch with the another one. Or you are able to place real plants if you want your room looks more natural. You are able to apply this tip as long as you have enough spaces in your room.
