Last Wednesday we had a remarkable meetup in which we got to hear six people share the problems they're having with one room in their home. Then the crowd jumped in to help. The pics above are all from Allison's new living room in Brooklyn which is beautiful, airy and white, but needing seating postions and warmth. Head below the jump to find out more about the problem and help with your comments...

Name: Allison Milgrom
Location: Park Slope, BK
Room: Living Room, in 2 family townhouse
Size: 14 feet x 13 feet,

Problem: This was a gut renovation, we have owned less than a year and moved in Feb 2009. General decorating help and adding color… the walls are very light, as is the floor (a bleached bamboo). I would love to have suggestions on decorating, curtains/shades, adding color, rugs etc.

In particular, Allison asked about how to best set up the living room and still accommodate the entrance to the house. It's quite a small space.

Budget: Around $2,500 but flexible
