In a charming townhouse community in Westwood, a small but comfortable living room was shrinking. The owner came to me with a wish list to make the room more spacious and inviting, increasing its capacity to accommodate friends and family. This translated into additional seating that serves multiple purposes. The budget, a modest $6,000.
I humbly state that I more than exceeded the owner's expectations, not only by successfully achieving her initial objectives, but by making the room brighter, more livable, seemingly larger, and accommodating more people.
Rule #1 for a living room design scheme is to buy the best quality sofa in a neutral color that you can afford. It can be accessorized with pillows and a throw in any color, texture, or pattern you desire.
