Overall Design Concept:
- I wanted to make the space feel as cohesive as possible while still giving you a space for dining and living.
- I also kept everything simple and light to make the space appear larger and more open.
- Long white drapes that extent from floor to ceiling will make the space feel taller and brighter.
- I incorporated touches of black metal throughout all the spaces for an industrial farmhouse feel and for a slight masculine touch.
- I brought in blues with the accent pillows, accent chairs, and the dining area rug- I know you said you really liked blue.
- For the entry way I wanted to create an area that served as a foyer in this open concept space.
- I added a bench with hooks above next to the door that can serve as shoe storage and a place to hang bags and coats.
- Then as you enter into the space a long jute runner helps welcome you into the cohesive open concept.
- To the right behind the chairs in the seating area is a console table. Giving you can area to drop you pocket book, keys, mail, etc. This helps continue the entry area into the space.
- I turned the blank space on the right into a seating area. Sectioning it with a jute rug. I kept it simple with a console for storage and some mirrors on the wall the make the space seem more open. It also give the allusion of window since there is not a ton of natural light or windows.
- For decor I used simple vases filled with stems.
- I switched out the accent chairs for some a little more farmhouse/french country.

- Accent Chairs: CLICK HERE
- I placed you "living room" area in the back right corner.
- You can use the sofas you have now. Then purchase new ones later if that is something you want to do. I displayed lighter colored sofas to open the space.
- I also grounded this area with a jute rug.
- Added a swing arm lamp for extra light. A swapped out the chandelier for a flush mount light.
- I also included this really neat TV console. This bring wood up on the wall and provides a nice backdrop for your TV.
- A round coffee table helps break up the boxiness if the two sofas.
- I switched out the sofas for the gray option in those slip cover sofas. This will also give you an idea with the darker sofas you have now.
- I also added the shiplap wall for the tv. If you like this option I can draw up some plans on how to build this. I think it would really lighten the corner up.
- I also switched out the coffee table for this more rustic wood style table.
- The floor lamp was replace with a more traditional style. But still swing arm that will provide lighting while seating on the sofa.
- I layered a cow skin rug over top of the jute for a rustic look and adds depth and texture to the space.
New Source for Living Area:
- I placed your dining area where your living area is currently. This keeps the space feeling open.
- I used a rug with a fun design in this area, a wood and metal table, with black farmhouse style chairs.
- I also swapped out the ceiling fan for nice black metal light for over the table.
- I also place three barstools along the back side the the bar. These backless barstools will help the space stay feeling open.
- I kept the decor above the mantel simple- black frame, vase with greenery, and a stack of books.
- I also added frame along the wall with the window for displaying your favorite family memories.
- I switched out the chandelier for a less modern and more traditional farmhouse style.
- I also switch out the black dining chair for a textures rattan option. Then place some tufted fabric wingbacks on each hand to soften the place and add some contrast.
