The client who owns this beautiful home lives in my dream neighborhood. It's a beautiful area with classic and elegant homes.
This family recently moved in but wanted help arranging their living room. They had tried different options but didn't find one that had the look and feel they were happy with.

In the before picture it seems there is too much furniture. With the new layout, I was able to use everything except the TV stand and one chair and still avoid a cluttered feel. For a larger gathering, the two chairs in the sitting area can be pulled over toward the sofas to create a conversation grouping.
The built-in shelves to the left of the fireplace are very visible when entering the room so I used them to display decorative items.
When I create groupings for vignettes, I like to place similar items for greatest impact. Shiny glass placed in front of a mirror produces a beautiful reflection.
The shelves to the right were the perfect place to store the electronics and TV games.
This room is now ready for family and friends to enjoy the new surroundings. This family will create many great memories in this home. That's what home is for, right?
