I need some Interior Decorating Guidance or advice, on making my Family Room / Living Room / Kitchen Area, blend together better, as it is one big open room area, that is quite disjointed.
I like the Red, Black, White, and Beige theme in the recently remodeled and updated Kitchen, and would like some of that to carry over, into the 2 surrounding Rooms (Family Room and Living Room).
Condition of the Beige Tile floors are very good, and I want no changes there.
Walls will remain, physically located as is, except I am open to some color ideas / changes / improvements, etc. if appropriate.
Furniture is due for updating or replacement.
I do enjoy my old L shaped sectional (in the Family Room) for comfort purposes, but it’s fairly wore out.
A similar style replacement would be nice.
Big Screen TV on the wall, needs to maintain it’s present location, due to extensive wiring, already behind the walls.
The Stereo Equipment below the TV, and large sub-woofer adjacent, could probably be placed elsewhere, but might be a lot of $$$$ ???
There is a nearby coat closet that could maybe house the equipment, but I’m guessing that will be pricey, to make happen ???
The Computer station on the North Wall, could be relocated perhaps, but I like to look out the 2 surrounding glass doors at the outside world when computing.
I spend much of the day at my computer station.
The “Flight Simulator”, in the NW Corner of the Family Room, could be relocated, and even removed from it’s stand, onto a 18” inch deep shelve, by 27”inches wide, if appropriate.
Airplane on North Wall, up high in the room, not easy to relocate, but could be done.
I'd like a clean, contempory, perhaps almost model home look !!!
The House is a Hanger Home (there are 2 aircraft in an attached hanger on the house), and I'd like to introduce a little more of an Aviation Feel if possible.
I also like a Tropical Feel if possible with the avaition theme (maybe Seaplanes from the old days, or seaplanes on a beach, or ???)
I like the Red, Black, White, and Beige Theme in the kitchen, and would like to carry that into the adjacent areas (Family Room and Living Room).
Extra Carribean Colors would be really nice if possible, even if we perhaps changeout the Bright Red in the Kitchen ???
I will most likely complete the project on my own, after receiving a winning design.
Fireplace in the right corner of Pic 1, is a low cost electric model, that's pretty well in there for now.
It could be moved if necessary, but we do enjoy it.
Mainly need ideas on good color choices (I like calm walls, and maybe bright furniture and accessories).
Need also ideas for things on the large wall areas, to make the house look like a home.
Please think aviation, and possibly Tropical, on the improvements here.
Basic Layout of Furniture would be nice.
Description and possible choices of some appropriate pictures / accessories.
Description of where to move things around as appropriate
