living room. I love creating social gathering spaces in a single room. Not all of your guest will be enveloped into one conversation. Give them places to gather. Have a hard time creating a design? Examine a local hotel lobby. You'll get wonderful ideas.
DREAM living room - Ralph Lauren - looks like an expensive room--but what do you expect, it's Ralph Lauren! The chandelier and black in this room makes it look so much more elegant! I'm sure I can find something cheaper and make it look like this room :D
