Project Title
Transitional Decorating Style Family and Breakfast Room
Project Description
We have an 18 x21 family room with a 12 x 15 eating area off to side that we want to furnish.
The family room has a cathedral ceiling with fireplace. This is our main entertaining space and used also for TV viewing. (70 inch TV mounted on wall)

Needs in family room are sofa, chairs, desk, area rug, etc. Eating area only needs bar stools. We prefer transitional design with a comfortable sofa and chairs in the seating area.

We just had the house painted. The color in the kitchen, eating area and family is Sherwin William “Big Chill”
Location
What's your favorite decor style?
Transitional
What are some of the interior design brands or stores that you like to shop at?
We had a Sherrill couch that we liked very much but we would like something more up-to-date. Ethan Allan or Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel.

Room Label
My Combined Living/Dining
I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Mid-day light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
It's not a warm, comfy feeling or comfortable room. Might need more storage. Old mismatched furniture.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
We would like to keep the coffee table, the long buffet in the corner, the TV, preferably the hanging chandelier and if furniture under the TV can be used, that would be fine.

In the eating area, we would like to keep the dining room table and chairs and the liquor cabinet. My husband mentioned that we only need bar stools for the eating area. We also need a lamp over the table and anything else you think would work, even placemats. I don't want it to look too asian if possible. We'll post dimensions of the furniture in the general comments.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
No
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
No
Additional comments to designers
We would also like to retain the chandelier in the family room.

The last picture of cabinets under the TV is optional. We can use these in other rooms. The TV is mounted on the wall and would have to stay in the same location.

We can provide measurements of each piece if necessary.

Combined Living/Dining:

Since your room is large your color options with this room are quite broad

Gray as your main color is perfect because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors and works well as part of a color scheme in any room.

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
