To create a separate living space for the homeowners, designers used floor rugs to define the boundaries of the sitting room. In this smaller space, a stylish sofa and wingback chairs provide seating, while a coffee table and end table give guests somewhere to set plate and cups. To add warmth to the space, designers used rich wood trim and added a fireplace to give off heat on cool nights. For pops of color and a touch of personality, blue artwork was added to the space.
