The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
In this example Jeffers Design Group created a large, formal seating area and supplemented it with a small, informal grouping designed around a central ottoman. That way just two people can sit in this room without feeling swallowed up by the space. The low club chairs prevent the rear space from feeling cut off from the rest of the room.
“Think about what activities you want to take place in that room,” suggests interior designer Amy Luff at Margaret Donaldson Interiors in Charleston, South Carolina. “Do you want a dedicated TV spot? ? Or do you prefer a conversation area? That will give you a jumping-off point for how you might break up the room.” Sometimes the best way to deal with a long, narrow space is to divide it into two seating groups. That will allow you to fill the space without giving up normal-size furniture. It also will give you the opportunity to customize each area for a different activity or level of intimacy.
If the only thing distinguishing your living room from a bowling alley is the lack of red lines and pins, then you know how challenging it can be to decorate a long, narrow space.
