I love your blog and was excited to see the post asking for design problems – and I have a design problem! I live in a <800 sq ft loft in San Francisco with my boyfriend, Ryan, and our dog, Bentley. Our biggest room down stairs serves as living room/dining room/office, and needs to be reorganized. We would like to create a living room space that is more inviting – right now we trend towards gathering with friends in the kitchen instead. We’re opening to moving everything, even getting new pieces if necessary.
I put numbers on (this)photo… so I could walk you through the room:
1. hi-fi cabinet – keeper – has about 2ft on either side right now of empty space.
2. TV – keeper – occasionally used to watch movies, so OK that it is behind the chair, we just move the chair.
3-4. corner desk and cabinet -keepers – these need to travel together to maintain the ‘office’ and are keepers because they were designed and built by Ryan and I.
5. dining table -can get new- seats 4 when as is (pushed up against the wall), we often pull it out and add chairs to seat 6.
