“Think about what activities you want to take place in that room,” suggests interior designer Amy Luff at Margaret Donaldson Interiors in Charleston, South Carolina. “Do you want a dedicated TV spot? ? Or do you prefer a conversation area? That will give you a jumping-off point for how you might break up the room.” Sometimes the best way to deal with a long, narrow space is to divide it into two seating groups. That will allow you to fill the space without giving up normal-size furniture. It also will give you the opportunity to customize each area for a different activity or level of intimacy.
Try floating pieces in the center of the room, and be sure to maintain a consistent color palette and style, so the space feels harmonious. Throw some into the mix, so guests can pull up a seat when they want to join a group.
The place where the walls meet the floor defines the size of a room both physically and visually. You can’t alter the location of your walls without a construction crew, but using living room decor that emphasizes the wall’s height draws the eye up and makes the room appear bigger. To accomplish this hang floor-length curtains close to the ceiling, use tall bookshelves to compel guests to look up or install crown molding.
