I thought I should mention my favourite place to entertain visitors. One half of the kitchen is like a mini-sitting room, with 3 chairs facing each other, a coffee table in the middle, books and soft lighting giving it a cosy look, and a built-in display cabinet for favourite ornaments. Late afternoon light strikes this area, and I can watch the sunset from one chair (I watch sunrises from the living room) Being able to see the sun rise and set over natural horizons is one reason I love this house so much!

"The owners of this room have hung just one piece of art in the room so the plain walls can counter any busyness." Some busyness, coupled with more colourful walls, is just what it lacks! Some folk can apparently relax with bare grey walls - not me!

I sound like a know-it-all but I used a corner sofa in a tiny living room and really my living room comes to life in the evening but I definitely made the right choice. Sounds counter-intuitive but the space flows and everyone has a seat.
