This is a 1920 Aladdin Shadow Lawn that my husband grew up in, we had to sell it when we put his mother in nursing home, seven years later we bought it back. Both of his parents have now passed, so any major renovations is a no go for him because he needs this connection to them. It's a wonderful home with good bones and vibes. The previous owner did several improvements to the home, however they also removed key elements of its character like removing built in bookcases and mantle and cut out the stair wall. The sectional is fairly new and budget doesn't allow for replacement at this time. We have purchased crown molding and I want to put up curtain panels but haven't had anything call to me ... I need help, the room is missing something. We have three kids, both work full time and every other weekend, we have a small budget and little time. Of course eventually I want to put in built in bookcases and banister but until funds and time allow - does anyone have any suggestions to make this room feel complete.... for now? The room is approx 14.5x28 w little wall space, hanging tv over fireplace won't work , sectional is 116 long
