Living Room With High Ceiling and Lake Views

Thanks to the main room's 24-foot celings, "This is one of the most challenging rooms we have furnished!" says Kay. They solved the problem by adding horizon lines to break up the space and "make it scaled for humans!" Kay jokes. Said horizon lines include the iron drapery rod, the 7-foot tall lamps framing the window, the 5-foot tall swivel chairs by the fireplace, the 4-foot chair and ottoman, and the 2.5-foot chairs and sectional.
