I loved this room the first time I saw it, but after six months here I am tearing my hair out. I wanted to live with it a while before we decorated, but now I just can't see a way to go. The room has a lovely mountain view but there is a door or window in every wall, the ceiling seems pretty low, there are no ceiling lights at all and the fireplace is all the way over at one end. I am sure there is a solution to this, but I'm not seeing it.
The room is 17' 4" by 15' 10" I've uploaded a floor plan and some pictures of the room. The deck can be seen through the full length glass doors, there is a view of the mountains to the North through the other set of windows.
I am stuck as to how to arrange the furniture or which colors to choose. The deck outside is quite large and has a lovely view of the garden below, so my first thought was some sort of indoor conservatory idea, but right now everything is covered in snow so I am wondering if that would look silly. We have antique maps on the walls.
We do most everything in the room, eat, write, watch TV. Any help would be appreciated.
PS the fireplace is a pennisula shared with the kitchen. It is just to the right of the door to the deck.
