GIVE EM SOMETHIN TO BLOG ABOUT
AND NO JUDGEMENTS WHATSOEVER, JENNIFER, but you asked..
If I could grab the sofa, rug and chair as is and twist it around to face the fireplace, that would be a great start. Place the chair where the bookshelf is, facing inward and the sofa facing the fireplace. If you have a large piece of art or mirror, place it above the fireplace. Because you only have one window on one side of the fireplace, would paint the trim around that window the same color as the wall so it doesn't stick out as much. Remove the bookshelf and, if you can, run to Home Goods or TJ max and buy an over sized wicker basket for all of the games and toys, and place it under the large picture window. To balance out the space a bit and give the illusion of higher ceilings, hang a curtain rod as close to the ceiling as possible above the larger window (or two..see my blog from early December with a staging secret for inexpensive curtains and rods). Grab a couple of inexpensive lamps from Home Goods, walmart or Target (or just new lampshades) and place on either side of sofa. Good luck, Jennifer..send more pictures if you have them!
