It's me, Kathy from January. I'm sorry I'm taking so long to do everything you said but I am accomplishing things slowly but surely! ;) I have driveway and landscaping scheduled and I did window treatments in the 2nd floor bedrooms.
I ordered a sample of the gramercy braided rug you recommended and I love it!! Now I just want to be sure to get exactly the right size. The room from sliders to the front of the bar cabinets measures 19' 3". From the tv wall to the edge of kitchen peninsula is 20' 5". The sectional is 8' on each side. If I measure straight across the face of the FP and hit the walls, it's 9', and the hearth sticks out 28.5".
I attached the floor plan. I tried but could not figure out how to convert it to a jpeg.
Thought I would get the carpet first before doing the curtain panels.
I'm looking for the perfect tv console still. I love the one you said to get but it's $6000 and I would like to stay closer to like 1/3 of that, but I'll keep looking for something similar.
Last question, would you do a narrow sofa table on the back side of the sectional that faces the tv?? Maybe lamps on it and a plant, etc would cozy up the room more??
Thanks so much!!!!!
Personally- I don't think 37 inches is too high for an entertainment center- it is a personal preference.
