The Design Dilemma
Kate’s living room is long and narrow and has a large fireplace making it a tricky space to design. This awkward floor plan left her feeling like her design dreams would never come true.
“I’ve rearranged and redesigned this 120 square ft space numerous times…it has still managed to stump me.”
“I’m no stranger to the art of making a room feel like home… For years, I’ve been moving, reworking, and exploring the layout of the room to create an inviting and efficient space…I just couldn’t keep tackling the design of the living room on my own anymore. No matter how “finished” I was with this room, I was never really done. “
