Project Title
Steve's Beach Style Living Room
Project Description
Design floor plan and decorate living room. Somewhat long narrow room, would like to optimize seating around the fireplace so we can host larger groups. We will need to be able to sit 6 people at all times there, but seat a total of 8 people by bringing over chairs from other parts of the room on occasion. And since the focal point of the room will be around the fireplace, we are not sure how to utilize the outer edges of the room near the windows and avoid having empty/awkward spaces. We are also struggling with lighting since there is nothing in the room currently.

Additional comments to designers
Of the decor styles you can select, we like elements of traditional, beach and cottage. We like traditional without being overly formal. We like the clean lines and relaxing feel of beach, but something that doesn't feel out of place in winter. We also like some of the rustic finishes of cottage. In general we like neutral tones for furniture and rugs with pops of color in fabrics or art - pillows or smaller upholstered furniture.

Living Room:
Existing color looks great with new design. In case you consider changing the current color, you can try the palladian blue by Benjamin Moore for a brighter result.

For your main color, we chose to use green because it is soothing to the eye. It reminds us of nature and has a refreshing, stress relieving quality. Green is suitable for any room. In bedrooms it’s relaxing and pleasing, while in dining rooms it promotes overall balance and health. This soothing color encourages relaxation or tranquility, but has enough warmth to encourage comfort and harmony.

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
