Love the openness of the living area and the wood details. Pretty look for a house. [it is a great room - but all that brown! the wood and beige walls scream for a pop of color. turquoise sofa, anyone?
DIY- How to turn an old chest into a coffee table. I like the idea of using a trunk as coffee table however, hate the idea of somewhat destroying the trunk. A better idea would be to build a platform on legs or wheels to place the trunk on.
This could work in our tiny living room. A plush sectional fitted into a corner gives maximum seating in minimum space. A mostly neutral palette is accented with navy blue cushions, a valance, and accessories.
