Beloved Design Workshop,

We are baffled! After furniture looking for a month and consulting every one of my good friends … I still don’t see the light.

We bought a new residence almost a year earlier and also have actually not acquired furnishings for our living room. The only windows in the fire place and also the space are both on the exact same window, which leaves me two substantial walls to embellish (particularly if we choose to mount the TV over the fireplace). Do we do 2 couches as well as a chair? If so, where to a placed the TV? How do I fill up the walls? Ahhhh … my head is rotating.

The rest will certainly drop into room if we figure out the television positioning and also major seats.
