Today, I want to show you how to create a conversation area.
This Living Room above, was so fun to do. The homeowner had the most interesting items, I am going to show you more of this room later in the week.
But for now we will be focusing on what makes a conversation area.
See how the sofa is alone, and if you were to have a visitor
it is more difficult to visit.
We brought the two sofas across from each other. The area rug is a nice anchor--- it visually pulls the two couches together and you feel as if you want to sit down and have a conversation.
These two sofas were near each other but there is a walkway
right between them.
It is more ideal to pull the two closer together and have
the walkway behind the loveseat.
Adding the end table between the two helps to make it feel
more like a unit.
The couch is lonely and it does not feel like a place you would want to sit down and have a conversation.
