We requested Catonsville inside designer Laura Hodges of Laura Hodges Studio to provide her recommendation:

“This can be a nice area and I really like the bay window! As a substitute of a sectional, I’d really think about an extended, snug couch with a deep seat and a mixture of throw pillows. I’d flank the couch with wooden finish tables for desk lamps after which floor the area with a big space rug large enough to slip underneath all 4 legs of the couch. An oval wooden espresso desk or upholstered ottoman would work properly in entrance of the couch, after which I’d create a stunning spot for studying or dialog in entrance of the bay window with two upholstered armchairs.

“Rugs actually assist to create extra intimate areas inside a bigger area, so I’d add one other rug within the eating space. A few cabinets above the desk and paintings above the couch would assist the area really feel extra completed.”
