The first two questions I like to consider when decorating a space are “what do we have to work with?” and “how does/should the space function?” Laura’s living room is really long and narrow, which can be a bit more difficult, but I knew the confines of the space could be a shining point. And how does the space need to function? Along with the typical needs of a family with young kids, Laura and Craig planted a church last fall and their house is hustling and bustling with gatherings several nights a week. While design is important to them, they need the space to function for everything from adult meetings of 5 to small groups of 20, with gangs of children running around too.
Arhaus‘ upholstered furniture is available in an incredible amount of fabrics – this piece could be ordered in over 500 – and many of them at no additional charge. We went with View Grey, which is a beautiful, velvety material that has held up wonderfully to kids thus far.
Have you had to work with a long and narrow space before? What did you do to break it up a bit?
