BEFORE AND AFTER: KENSINGTON LIVING ROOM

I WAS PSYCHED WHEN ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS ASKED ME TO HELP REDO HER LIVING ROOM. SHE HAD SOME HAND-ME-DOWN UPHOLSTERY THAT SHE WAS READY TO PART WITH. 
THE WANTS?
 1)TO MAXIMIZE SEATING IN THIS SMALL SPACE
2)CREATE A LIGHT AND AIRY PALETE AROUND A RECENT PAINTING PURCHASE
3)MAKE SPACE FOR A TV
4)MAKE IT COZY AND COMFORTABLE!!!
 HERE ARE SOME BEFORES….

 
AND THE AFTERS...
WE ADDED DOUBLE WIDTH PANELS TO MAKE THE WINDOW APPEAR MUCH LARGER THAN IT IS.
A GLASS TOP COFFEE TABLE KEPT THE AREA LIGHT…AND THE ROUND SHAPE IS THE MOST TRAFFIC SENSIBLE IN A SMALL SPACE.
