Additional comments to designers
Requirements for this room:
1) The TV can not be over the fireplace as I feel it will be too high and I don’t want to strain looking up.
2) I need a screen for the fireplace.
3) This is the room the family spends the most time in. Furniture needs to be very durable and stain proof. I have three small children.
4) Most of the time people spend in this room are lounging so super comfortable seating is very important.
5) I have narrowed down the sofas I would like to buy. Preferably I would like a sofa from Mitchell gold either in semi analine leather or performance fabric, I would be open to a room and board sofa but only in semi analine leather (i tested even their sunbrella fabrics and found them not very stain resistant. I am attaching a Pinterest board for some inspirations and with some of the couches I thought were nice looking and comfortable. https://pin.it/dymjuxkmmgvni6
6) family room is sunken the dimensions I gave above are sunken part. The hallway next to it is the same length but has a width of 41" and ceiling height of 9'

Additional comments to designers
The mural came with the house. I don’t love it but I feel bad to paint over it as it clearly took some work. I am open to suggestions. I would like to recarpet the stairs or do something with them. I would like new runners and rugs in this foyer and some furniture and decor.

Living Room:
.Using lighter colors in your medium-sized room will make it feel more airy and bright

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish

Hallway/Entry:
Since your room gets plenty of sunlight your color options are quite broad.

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish for the boiseries (wainscoting) use Satin finish.
