Paige and Aaron Rosenfeld are struggling to find a chair arrangement for a 13-by-19-foot family room in their Bethesda home. The room has an ungainly shape, and mixed entrances and a grate mystify their seating options. They wish a gentle space where their family of 4 can relax and watch television, and a some-more cohesive and updated design.
Designer Charles Almonte swaps a radio and lounge to maximize wall space and give a Rosenfelds a wider accumulation of options for seating. He chooses a sectional and other pieces that are smaller in scale to improved fit a space.
Soft gray walls emanate a neutral, relaxing backdrop. Try Reflection by Sherwin-Williams. Supplement a beyond lighting with building and list lamps, providing suitable light for reading. Reorient a chair to make improved use of a space, with a seating along a longer wall. Go with a sectional, rather than a adore chair and sofa, for casual, gentle seating with a smaller footprint. Opt for a set of 4 storage ottomans instead of a coffee table. They assistance enclose confusion and can be used as additional seating. Add tone and celebrity with tradition Roman shades on a windows. A long, low media console provides storage but strenuous a room.
