Help designing a giant great room/formal dining area
I need some help to try and figure out what to do with a formal dining area in a house we are buying... there already is a breakfast/dining area off the kitchen, and we don't want to have two dining rooms.
Our great room is combined with the formal dining area - I want to turn this into a reading nook or something comfy and inviting, while still having a separate living room with a sofa and tv.
I do not want to have a computer area or desk area here. No clutter - I would like to replace the chandelier light fixture with something less dining-room-ish. Any suggestions, pictures, or ideas would be wonderful!
