Living room decor
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need help adding to/changing things up/rearranging with my living room bc I feel like its lacking something! Room has plenty of space and a vaulted ceiling to help with the ambiance. It's the family room that we are in most of the time so I want it to look great but be cozy and comfortable!
(Let me know if different picture angles wanted)

May we see all four walls as in photo #2? Would suggest you use a paintable chase to hide the TV cords. Your window and FP style is crying out for crown molding. The room needs the softening of drapery panels at the sides of each window. Mount rods just below the crown when installed and let the panels fall freely to kiss the floor.

I think your room is lovely, but to me it cries out for a bit more excitement in the rug and pillows. Just a bit...

Fireplace wall is approx 21 ft with 2 large windows... opposite the fireplace is open to kitchen. Left hand side is approx 23ft long. Right side only has 6ft wall w/ window bc it has opening to breakfast area. Here's a sketch from myself (not an artist haha)

Also the power cords are an upcoming project to get it routed behind the wall! Any advice for color curtains?

Just a little more color and texture and you have it. Lose the tv wires if you can spoils everything.. I'm like Joan Crawford. NO WIRES!!! Her deal was wire hangers. Old movie:)

Yes, now I see where the wires are going. Hope a better solution will emerge to replace that under scale stand for the gear. Can see right away that the mirror and sconces are hung too high, but I'm not a fan of mirrors that don't reflect anything beautiful or interesting, so I'd prefer art. Pieces with furniture look better at 4-10" above the piece. With the exception of the coffee table, the table, gear stand and lamps are too small scale, skinny and feminine for the scale of the furniture. My biggest issue is with the color of the sofas - pink by the looks of the pics. Have you considered slip covering them with something like a tan or cream cotton duck cloth? They are clashing with the warm yellow tone of the walls.

only reason the mirror and scones are hung that high are bc its a high vaulted ceiling and I though maybe it would need to take up some of that space.
the sofas actually are a very light tan color... camera must made it appear pink

A lovely room, because the ceiling is vaulted you want to make it feel more cosy so bring the mirror or I would prefer art work lower about 6'' above your sofa. Move the sofas into the room to be closer to the fireplace. The sofas are very light you need rich warm colours with pillows and a throw,bigger carpet with colour. When you move the sofa place a sofa table behind it, it will be a good place for a lamp.:-)

People and furniture live in the first 7-8' of a space. Above that, there is no need for decor. You'll never be able to fill all that up and the scale of items you'd need would break the bank. It serves to increase utility bills, but that's about it. Some folks with open vaulted spaces are closing them in for media rooms, so they can justify what they're paying to heat and cool them!.
