Have a Seat!

Do tell...

What's YOUR design dilemma?

Yes, I have assisted LOTS of folks with Home Staging plans and Design plans ~ BUT when it came to OUR living room. We were a bit stymied.

We moved to our current home from this Colonial townhome. It had a traditional floor plan and we had properly scaled furniture pieces to fit the space.

Every effort was made to use said furniture in the new place -- even though a few items looked like they belonged in Barbie's Dream House.

We lived with our little leather love seat in the large living room as long as we could. When friends came, it just seemed like there was no where to sit. So we embraced the challenge of seeking out the right piece.


There is a fireplace, sliding doors and a wooded view ~ none of which could be obstructed. AND, this room opens to the dining area ~ yet another consideration. What we needed in this case was an objective 3rd party. I enlisted the help of the in-home design service of my local Pottery Barn.

They asked the same thoughtful questions I ask my clients: How do you use the room, how many people do you need seating for, any children or pets, is your style more formal or more casual, etc...

SO...based on all considerations, this sectional is working out perfectly. It does NOT overwhelm the room or block the view or walkways or fireplace. Here's to Team Effort!! So, come on by and put your feet up ~ that's if a particular feline will share "her space".
