About This Space

Our large sectional sofa could have easily dwarfed this small living room, but the placement not only creates a comfy social area, but also minimizes the amount of space allocated for it. Being an apartment we are limited with what we can do with design of course; however, painting a large accent wall that flows from the entry to the living room warmed up the entire space and reduced the starkness of generic white walls. Family heirlooms such as the crystal lamps and paintings, in addition to items from our travels are very important to us and needed to be incorporated without appearing too cluttered. Our space works so well that it will be difficult moving back to a large space again.
