I started pulling things out and switching things around and trying different pieces. I finally have an arrangement that looks and feels right for the room.
This is the previous arrangement I showed you.
With the window alcove area so deep, you almost have to create an arrangement that is contained to that area and size. This was ok, however it felt really cramped when you tried to sit down and enjoy the space.
I wanted to use my new chair in here and have an all white room, just one problem. Mixing whites is really tricky. The reason I have the fur throw on the arm of the sofa is clashing colors. The chair and sofa colors really clash in bright daylight. The chair took on a gray green hue and my sofa a yellow cream hue. They didn't look good together. (The chair went to our bedroom and worked out perfect.)
Problem #2. This coffee table is one of my most favorite furniture pieces. It was way to big for the family room so I put it in the living room. This didn't work either. Way too big and really crowded the area. So back to the drawing board. (I finally parted with this piece and gave it to my daughter. It is amazing in her family room.)
This was the final winner for both furniture and arrangement. I put my queen anne coffee table back in the living room and changed out the white chair for one of my leather ones. See how much more open and airy this arrangement feels.
The room just feels so much more open and airy. Definitely more comfortable to relax and enjoy a visit.
I think this is the winner. I can still change it up with accessories, so that makes me a happy camper.
So, what do you think, better?
